Patricia Moreno Catherine Kirk EED 280 1/27/2018 Based on the research that I found on the internet is that many preschool center they have what is called a Preschool Progress Report Card. Preschool Programs many different philosophies and approaches to preschool programs exist, and the type of program will determine the curriculum used. Despite the nature of the program, assessment of preschool students should be used primarily to guide instruction. Montessori, the Montessori program, developed by Maria Montessori, follows a developmental approach to instruction. It emphasizes nature, creativity, and hands-on learning. All teachers in this program must have an early childhood degree and be Montessori certified. Waldorf, the Waldorf program, developed by Rudolf Steiner, focuses on the child's interest. It uses creative, hands-on group learning and rhythmic repetition. Instruction is teacher-directed and teachers are Waldorf certified (Zachry). Reggio Emilia these schools originally started in Italy. The approach encourages exploration and focuses on community and self-expression. These are child-led through art, projects, and activities. There is no formal curriculum or teacher training (Zachry).Bank Street this developmental approach is based on the ideas of John Dewy and focuses on mental, social, emotional, and physical growth. Students set the pace, and the teacher serves as a guide. Lessons are taught through hands-on activities. Project-Based Learning This approach reflects constructivist and sociocultural theories and is built on scaffolded social play, balance in daily scheduling, evidence-based classroom arrangement, portfolio assessment, Moreno 2 and integrated webs of learning and activities. Child-Initiated Theme Approach this approach is similar to project-based learning in that the goals are embedded in the themes, but instead of the themes being teacher generated, children create the themes. Multiple Intelligences Curriculum this approach is built on Gardner's eight forms of intelligences. Teachers create experiences to address each form of intelligence. General Knowledge were it will show if the child can recognize his name or the days of the weeks or if he knows the city in which he lives at. For work readiness it would show if the child can listen attentively, can follow directions, uses materials correctly and cleans up after work. Social/Emotional Readiness it would show I follow limits and expectations, I play well with others, I respect property, I participate in group activities, I can sit in a group and listen and I can wait my turn. For Visual/Motor Development skills if the child is able to throw and catch, jump/hop/skip, can balance on one foot, I can hold a pencil, I can use scissors, I can color within the lines and I can tie/zip buttons. For this type of progress report card, I think it can be a standard based report card because I research all of them and notice that all of them had similarity information and what every teacher is looking in the development of their students. For a kindergarten student there can be a little different from a preschool student but not a lot. Uses phonemic/inventive spelling to form words, retells familiar stories, counts aloud to 25-50-75-100 and again that shows a standard report card for a kindergarten student and showing the progress of that child and what he has learn and what development skills he needs to work on to achieved. For a first grader student there is more indepth of areas and skills where the students need to accomplish. They use a more traditional report card that shows performance stands like exceeds standards, meets standards, professing toward and limited progress or does not meet standards. I went ahead and did my researching and contrast a report card on a kindergartener from Midway R-I School Cleveland, Missouri Moreno 3 64734 for the year 2010-2011. It shows different areas of Satisfactory, Progressing, Needs Improvement and Does Not Apply for the student Chloe Daily. In the reading area she scored a satisfactory in the whole area. In the writing area is showed that she was progressing to express ideas through journal writing. Other area that I notice she was still progressing was in Math. She’s in the progress of using basic concepts of measurements and can create patterns. For a student in third grade their report card can be more challenging and harder for them to master and achieve. For Alana Marie Davis she’s a third grader at Escambia County Schools. She’s scored an A in Language Arts, an A- in Math and in Art Intermate she scored a Satisfactory scored on her report card.
