Printable Pre-K Progress Reports
One of the most difficult things about assessments in Pre-K is communicating progress to parents.
You teach all day, then you have to find time to communicate all the data you collected to the parents.
Not only do you have to do all that, but you also have to ensure that the information you share with parents is easy to read and it is useful.
Filling out progress reports has to be done frequently and takes up many hours of your valuable time.
That’s why I created this printable progress report that is easy to fill out and also easy for parents to read and understand.
When do you send the progress reports home?
Each teacher, classroom, or program is unique. Some programs may require progress reports to be sent home at certain times of the year and others have no requirements at all.
Progress reports are most effective when they are sent home every two or four weeks to keep parents updated on their child’s progress.
There are two pages to the progress report, but there is no need to send both pages home every two weeks, only one. For example, if you send home the page with the alphabet on the first Friday of the month then you can send home the sheet with numbers, colors, and shapes two weeks later. You can also cut the sheets apart and send home only one section at a time.
Why should I send home a progress report?
Progress reports are most helpful for communicating with parents of struggling students. They can also be used at the beginning of the year for all students. When you send home progress reports at the beginning of the year parents will quickly see how much their child needs to learn.
When used with struggling students, progress reports will let parents know that you are aware there is a need and are trying to do everything you can to help.
Progress reports also let parents of struggling students know what skills to focus on at home and can be used as documentation if necessary.
What about students who already know everything?
If a student has already mastered certain skills there is no need to send progress reports home with those students. If you have students who are working above grade level it is always best to meet with their parents to discuss next steps.
How do you send progress reports home?
Progress reports can be sent home in the front pocket of your parent communication notebooks every two weeks.
If a student is really struggling you can ask the parent to sign the progress report and return it for documentation.
