Take a digital picture of each student on the first day of school. Insert into a Microsoft Word document in which each student types or writes about what they would like to learn in second grade. Glue on the front of a file folder and put samples of student's work in it throughout the year. Take a picture of each student the last week of school and have students write what they learned throughout the year. Glue on the inside of the file folder. Use folders as a portfolio to send home at the end of the year.
