Record Keeping for Ages 3-6 yrs

For those interested, I just posted my list of lessons I use for record keeping. Lately, I have been working on updating my record keeping list. I had a basic list of traditional Montessori lessons for a 3-6 classroom from my internship. I have been adding to it over the past year as I come up with original lessons based on my daughter's skill level and needs. Now that we are coming up on completing the first year of the three year cycle, I feel the need to have a good idea of where we are going. I try to keep my list up to date with lessons as I teach them so many listed are ones seen on this blog. This newly created record list is a work in progress! It contains lists of the specific lessons I have taught and will teach, but also some vague lists of lessons I want to put together but have not yet done so. If you would like access to the lists of lessons, go to the side of the blog under free resources and printables and it is listed there. Let me know if there are problems accessing it, as this is my first time using this file sharing site.

Oh, I forgot to ask you. Would you mind sharing where you bought your materials from? I remember reading it somewhere in your blog, just can't find it right now. Thank you! Miri

Thanks for all the great comments. So nice to hear from all of you!

Miri- I purchased a lot from Alison's-like globes, landforms, sensorial. I also use Montessori N Such for smaller less expensive items (I do use them for the puzzle maps though.)

One thing I forgot to add about record keeping...Next to each lesson is a space for marking. Instead of using a check mark after completing a lesson, I draw a triangle. The triangle is made in three stages. When I present the lesson I draw the first side of the triangle: / showing it was presented. When I see the lesson is being practiced or used I draw the second side of the triangle: \ so that it then looks like this: /\ When the lesson is mastered I complete the last side, making the triangle. It makes it easy to glance down at the paper and know what has been just presented, practiced or mastered using this system.

You are such a blessing to our family! I am a homeschooling Montessori Mom of a 3 1/4 year old (Is that a real age description??), and a 22 month old, and this helps me tremendously. With no Montessori teaching experience except when I went to a Montessori school between the ages of 3 to 6 years, I felt lost when it came to putting an actual list together for lessons for my 3 year old. Both are so hungry to learn, if I put one or two Montessori materials out on the school shelves, the children are begging for more! It is great!

I humbly ask for any more help on my youngest child's age lessons (22 months). I have or will use your ideas that you have done, and any more posts would most certainly used at our house.

Thank you so much for your selfless time for us.

I just posted a request for ideas for record keeping on my blog. Here I am a few minutes later looking through your posts and you have something that I can learn from! Thanks so much! My daughter isn't 3 yet so I'm looking for suggestions as to how to set up a generic chart to keep track of activities, what is being done, mastered and what needs to be extended. Any ideas from you all are much appreciated!
