Can you feel Christmas just around the corner? We LOVE term 4 now that winter is long gone and summer family time is on the horizon.
If you’re anything like us, you’re already planning the class Christmas party.
Of course, if you’re anything like Bridget then you’re also smashing through reports to get them out of the way before #beachseason starts. Or are you more of a Shez who works better under pressure, cranking out reports in the last few weeks?
Reporting is so important for kids and parents, but it’s something almost every teacher dreads in term 4.
If you thought we’d leave you high and dry to get through reporting alone, think again!
Before you start draping tinsel over desks, let’s get through reporting season together shall we?
Step 1: The super handy curriculum-aligned comment resource breaks down common strengths and weaknesses into groups like “relationships”, “behaviour & attitude” and “traits”.
Step 2: Then you’ve got sentence starters for future-focussed comments to give parents an idea of what their child is working towards.
Step 3: In each subject area there are comments for the different achievement levels, aligned to the Australian Curriculum skills and abilities.
Step 4: Get inspo from the “general statements” section in each subject. They’re parent-friendly and specific about what the child can and can’t do, to give real nuggets of insight.
Step 5: Hours and hours of time saved wracking your brains for amazing report comments.
Seriously, there are HEAPS of comments and prompts in this comment resource.
Check out our Insta to see how it works. You can even copy and paste straight from the Excel sheet or tweak the comments for something more personal.
We know it can be tough to stay motivated but with our teacher resources and the support of other teachers, you can smash through reports and still be smiling when you send the kids off to summer holidays.
