Progress reports can be written for a preschool child based upon the milestones he or she has attained in areas of cognitive development, emotional development, and physical development. More specific measures of these areas can incorporate a child's self-help skills, play habits, language use and motor skills.
Here are some strategies for creating a progress report:
Step 1: Categorize the progress report into emotional, physical, and cognitive areas of development
Indicate specific cognitive achievements made with a check mark. A child may illustrate cognitive development through recognition of colors, but still has not been able to recognize basic geometric shapes.
Step 2: Similarly indicate specific instances of physical and emotional development
Emotional development can be reflected in a child's ability to make choices without a teacher's assistance. Physical development can be illustrated through a child's ability to use classroom tools like crayons and paper with skill and dexterity.
