The “Look What I Can Do” checklist is an instrument designed to communicate the summationa of classroom assessment information. This checklist is linked to each classroom`s weekly unit and aligns with the Curriculum Map and Scope & Sequence. The recorded information is based on work samples, anecdotal notes, photographs, recordings, weekly assessments, and other developmentally appropriate instruments. It is used by Kids R Kids providers nationwide to positively affect the cognitive, social, physical and language development of young children.
What is Monitored:
- Physical Growth/Motor Development – ability to move and control body
- Social/Personal Development – social skills, interaction with others, and self-esteem
- Emotional Development – growth and development of feelings
- Cognitive/Language Development – mental growth and development, including language and literacy, math, and science
Integrated with the curriculum activities is a uniform, validated assessment tool for observing and continual tracking of children’s development and school readiness in their most natural setting – at play. This assessment tool makes it easy for teachers to record and access observations made during daily, play-based activities. Based on observations by the teacher, the “Look What I Can Do” assessment tool helps educators track the developmental age of children and identify children who need extra attention as early as possible, then apply appropriate interventions, maximizing school readiness.
The “Look What I Can Do” reporting features make it easy for teachers to document their observations by preparing and printing out a wide range of developmental summaries and progress reports for both their class and individual children. Flexibility in these reporting options means that full information can be provided to teachers while allowing parents to see selected reports.
This system gives early childhood programs a competitive edge by combining accountability, targeted learning experiences, and parent involvement into an integrated resource that can promote school readiness.
