Raising Rock Stars Preschool ~ The Notebook & Assessment Tools

Since we are taking the week off or Raising Rock Stars Preschool around here, I thought I would take some time to share a bit more about how it works in our house. Two major components to the program are ones I rarely {if ever} blog about or mention, so I thought they might need their own post; The Notebook and the Assessment Tools.
I knew before I created the program that I needed a storage solution so I could save his PreK work easily and also refer back to it for review. I decided on a 3 inch/3 ring binder, utilizing sheet protectors and baseball card holders. I purposely made the mini cards from each unit to fit perfectly into the baseball card sheets. Here is how our notebook is laid out…
The Cover…I used the sheet I created {which you can also download} and put his photo on the front…{he really likes this}…IMG_7330-2
I store the main board components in sheet protectors so I will be able to reuse them with Ladybug, I 3 hole punch his worksheets and place them behind those. Here’s a page open so you can see part of it…IMG_7335-2
The notebook is a great for review and I try to remember to bring it out often. We review all aspects of it, especially the vocab cards…IMG_8129
I created some simple preschool assessment tools to use both before starting the program and also throughout to see growth. For those of you who have already downloaded the assessment tool, you may want to go back..I added in a number ID page to the set. You can download the assessment tools here.
I also made a simple list of goals for the program which you can find here.
Here’s a video I made walking you through the notebook and how I use the assessment pages…
