Carol - Do you have the assessment sourcebook for grade 1. I believe there are assessments that you might use for the portfolio. I looked at the assessment activities as well as the checklist for the grade level also contained in the sourcebook for each unit. I printed a description of the activity on what I called a worktag which was basically half of a 8.5 X 1l sheet in landscape format. This description was to inform anyone looked through the portfolio as to the purpose of the activity. On the back I made a checkist from what to look for in the sourcebook for that activity. I then reviewed the student's assessment and checked off the list what they had demonstrated as accomplishment for the activity. I also added any anecdotal notes and then popped it right into the portfolio.
