Why not keep a scrapbook to record your child's accomplishments?
Your child should work with you to prepare the scrapbook. You'll need a 3-ring notebook and lots of paper.
Have your child draw or cut out pictures from magazines or newspapers to illustrate each item or make written lists. Stickers or gold stars add a special touch.
Have your child choose his own categories. Some suggestions:
Things I've Learned in School
- Words I Can Spell
- Math Problems I Can Do
- Stories I've Written
How I Help
- Things I Do Around the House
- Things I Do Outside
- My Favorite Drawings
- Songs I Can Sing
Other headings might include: Places I've Been, Things I'm Proud Of, Books I've Read.
You can think of more that will let your child focus on things she has accomplished.
