The first time in the first class! How many preschoolers and their parents are now experiencing these exciting months! Ahead is still a graduation in kindergarten, preparation and collection of everything necessary for school, but this is not all. It is very important that, having fallen into the new classroom supervisor, the childcould showcase himself and show his talents.
But often, children are starting to be ashamed, afraid and not always ready to show themselves in a new team in all its glory. That is why it is recommended to make a portfolio for future first-graders, and then for older children of elementary school. We hope that this information will be useful to the parents of future first-graders.

What Does the
Student's Portfolio Need? Now in schools, each student requires portfolios, but why does this need a child, many parents do not understand. In fact, this document will gather the most useful information about the child for the teacher who will work with him and continue to develop his creative potential.
When sending a child to the first class, many parents do not expect that all the basics of the letter, letters and accounts of his teacher will teach.
Even in pre-school age, children attend development centers, teach tutors, and engage in circles and sections. To the first class they already have a lot of knowledge and skills.
However, due to the peculiarities of temperament, not every child can safely declare himself in a new team. Someone is afraid of ridicule, someone is ashamed to report such information to the teacher, and somebody can "forget" because of inattention, who can paint beautifully or has vocal talent.
When creating a portfolio for their child, parents will put all the information about their time on the shelves( that is, the corresponding sections), and the teacher, having studied this document, will already have an idea with whom and how it will work.
Elementary Student Portfolio Structure The parenting portfolio of the child's first class will then be supplemented with new information, so it is important to maintain a certain structure. This not only facilitates its further filling, but it will allow teachers to more accurately make an opinion about the child.
Because there are no clear requirements and norms for drawing up such a document, the structure of the portfolio may be approximately the following:
For a child, only goes to the first class and can not write, the section "Autobiography" can be skipped. Beginning with Grade 2, when drawing up a portfolio, the child is already able to write a short story about herself.
Family information, its composition can be placed in this section, describe any family traditions. If you wish, you can make a family tree family.
Recommendations for the design of
Recommendations for the design of the portfolio are also approximate. There are no clear requirements, so parents can arrange it to your liking.
This may be a large notebook in a dense binder. It can be decorated with patterns, drawings, and the child can participate and paint the pages on their own.
You can buy a special diary for boys or girls and arrange it in the form of a portfolio, entering into it corresponding sections.
You can arrange all pages on a computer, print white or colored paper( pastel shades) and paste them into sheets in special folders with pasted files. In short, the design of this document is a fantasy of the student and his parents.
Do not forget about designing the student student portfolio cover sheet. Here it is necessary to indicate what the document is and who owns it.
Sometimes it is appropriate to place a photo of a child on the title page, which already has personal information about him( that is, surname, name, date of birth).In this case, the information about the place of residence is mono to the section "About me".
If a child attends extracurricular activities, then it is possible to describe his approximate mode of the day, taking into account the attendance of sports sections, out-of-school development centers and circles. In the sections "Creativity" and "Achievements" you can attach copies of letters, letters of commendation and other awards, provided that they are not bulky.
For first-year students in the section "Teaching" you can insert prescriptions from the kindergarten, the teacher will see the preparation of the child to the school, how developed his hand. Many kindergartens practice the preparation of a preschooler's hand for writing, and give such a notebook to their parents at the end of the school year before graduation.
In the section "Achievements" and "Public activity" you can insert copies of successfully written works, results of the current and intermediate attestation, and others. If the child is engaged in any kinds of needlework, his work is voluminous and can not fit into the portfolio format, they can be photographed, collage and add to the relevant section in the form of photos.

Portfolio Portfolio To ensure that parents have no doubts about any portfolio design issues for an elementary student, give an example of such a document. It can be used as a sample.
