More Portfolio Tips

I just can't help but get so excited when I come in and see how everyone is progressing on their portfolios!!!  Here are a few more ideas for you to get inspired for portfolios!!!  More to come!!!  Too much to share in this one post so here's a spotlight on a couple of toddler teachers!!

Marilyn & Julissa - 
Young Toddler Teachers in JP Revere Street

Marilyn and Julissa shared some of the systems that are working for them with their group of young toddlers

They have organized the portfolios with photographs and names of the children on the binding.  So cute!

They also created a bulletin board for each area of work that they are collecting...Ciencia


...Matematicas...That way, all of the work that they collecting for the portfolio is already divided by subject!!  

They used a sample of the toddlers ripping tissue paper and had them glue it onto the paper to show their fine motor work.  

They are also using photographs that they print to document the process that the children go through to create the work in school.

They created labels on the paper that we provided to divide the sections by month.

They also came up with a creative way to collect their Anecdotal notes for each child.  

They made a table for EACH CHILD so that they can easily jot down notes for the children and then will transfer it to the portfolios.

Great system that works for them!!

I also wanted to share this adorable bulletin board that they created too!!  Great work ladies!

Darlin - Older Toddler Teacher in Newton

Darlin created her month dividers on colorful paper

She decided to use lots of photographs to document the different developmental areas.  She even made one for Physical Health.  

The Arts


Language and Communication

Cutting Sample

Story Dictation - used a post it to write what the child said about their creation.


She took an envelope and placed a label on the front so she knows what is inside.

There are multiple copies of the labels in the envelopes so she is always ready!!  Love it!!
For fun, here is Darlin's bulletin board.  She made the letters 3 Dimensional by adding extra tape behind them!!  It's hard to see in this photo, but in person, it's really cool!!

Her Arbol Bulletin Board

Parent Communication Board!!

Isabel - Younger Toddler Teacher in Newton

Isabel also created the front of the portfolio with a photo and his name.

I LOVE how she put a photo on the actual piece of art to show the process of how he did the activity along with the label.  So professional!!!  

Here is a very creative bulletin board that Isabel did for her toddler class.  She used real leaves to write out the word "otono", and made a 3D effect of the basket under the tree by stuffing it with hay.  Another cool 3D effect was that she used BALLOONS to make the apples in her tree and then wrapped them with tissue paper!!  Super creative!!
