The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) is undertaking extensive efforts to enhance the management of its grant programs.
We try to make sure that each term includes a Maths and English piece and that all of the other learning areas are covered in the year.We used to glue descriptors to each portfolio piece before inserting them into each pocket.It’s nearing the end of term 3 here in Western Australia so our thoughts are turning to updating our portfolios with this term’s work.Over the years we have modified our portfolio to make it less time consuming to put together and more informative for parents.
This of course was VERY time consuming and as I’d prefer my EA to be actually engaging with the children than spending endless hours on prep we came up with a solution that was still effective but less time consuming. The Early Years Learning Framework outcomes are listed in a column on the left hand side. The first column is a title for the portfolio piece, the second EYLF outcomes along with their related learning area and the third is a brief description of what happened in that learning experience.
