Hi!

I will be starting to teach my son kindergarten this year.  By PA law I don't have to send a letter of content until he is 7 years old.  I do know that school does request a portfolio.  What goes in it ?

art work

samples of writing

math worksheets

etc.

You may also want to keep a list of your curricula and their scope & sequences, along with your goals.

Thank you very much!  For kindergarten it seems very simple.  I am going to use the list of skills that was in " what your kindergarten needs know"  Include everything Frankie does on paper that represents his understanding and ability to achieve those skills.
