End of the School Year Piles of Paperwork

Piles and piles of crap are on my table at this point in the school year. The worst part?  Most of it I am either a.) in the middle of completing or b.) have no idea where to stash it because the pile is so big.  So I just leave it.  Out on my table.  For all the world to see.  The kids have no chance coming to that table for instruction.  They couldn't see over the papers!  Thank goodness they are mostly independent working on their pirate projects!

We are required to complete portfolios on each student.  There is  a specific list of items to include in the portfolios.  However, I wanted a lot of information readily available to the next year's teacher all in one place.  It seems like we collect eight bazillion pieces of data on children and record them all on  DIFFERENT.SHEETS.OF.PAPER! Sheesh!  We have to rifle through a bunch of papers to get a snapshot.  I don't call that a snapshot.  I call that work.  Ick.

So I created a portfolio summary sheet.  This is a neat, concise form to give s snapshot of the student's performance for this school year.  It actually includes many of the things on the district checklist so it does accomplish two goals.

This is somewhat geared to Georgia teachers grades 3-5 because of the CRCT assessment.  However, I would be happy to edit and post another version for your specific state assessment if you tell me what you need!

I hope this is helpful!  Two more half days to go!  Yahoo!



  1. What program did you use to create this sheet? I'd love to make one for my little sweeties to put with their report card. I teach Kindergarten and we don't have the same "grades" as you do. Just wondered. Thanks!


  2. You made me laugh so hard with your papers comment--I've been doing the same thing!! My table is a source of humiliation right now...I finally just sorted everything away today, ahhh. I love this portfolio printable!

  3. I too have a stack I need to work on. Oh, the fun times at the end of school. :-)


  4. I love the idea of data sheets like this. I created something along the same lines for my kiddos. For math, it had all of their unit test scores, quizzes, math timings, homework, etc. For reading it had DRA assessment data and fluency growth.

  5. My table is the same way! I have one little corner with just enough room at the end to meet one-on-one for assessments!

  6. Your blog is too cute! I have given you a lovely blog award. Please come by and check it out!
