Checklist for mathematical activities

In order to keep a record of the presentations which we had given to each child, we designed a checklist which we stuck discreetly to one of the classroom walls with blu tack. After presenting an activity to a child, we marked a dot on the checklist in a neutral colour (black or blue). This enabled us to keep a precise record of what presentations we had given and therefore to guide each child appropriately in the choice of activities.

How do I make a record of the skills acquired?

For the mathematical activities, we wanted to keep a precise record of the skills the children had acquired. When a child knew the name of two or three numbers presented using the sandpaper numbers - for example 2, 4 and 1 -, we rubbed out the neutral colour dots signifying that these three figures had been presented to them and we replaced it with a green dot. That way, by looking at the chart, we knew at a glance what had been presented to a child and the notions that they had, or had not, acquired.
