Usually include self portraits drawn by child-I have child draw what they look like (usually about 3-4 a year to show progress) I have them write name at beginning of year with no model to see how they write it-I accept what they do to show starting point-then I will write their name on paper after a few weeks and have them write it- I take 4-5 samples of name writing throughout year. I take a lot of pictures of them doing many activities in all areas of the class to show math, science, social skills. I take examples of their art work-ones that show ability to follow directions and free art examples that they created. I take examples of fine motor skills such as cutting, lacing, etc. I have them draw pictures in a journal and take down what they say about picture to show literacy skills. We also do monthly class book where each child draws a picture about a story we have read ex. We read the Itsy Bitsy Spider book and the kids drew My itsy bitsy spider is climbing up_________________.
They draw a picture of where the spider is climbing. I make copies of the pages and put in their portfolios. At the end of the year each child gets to take a class made book home. I break the portfolio into sections like math, science, fine/gross motor, social/emotional dev., creative arts, lang./literacy dev. Hope this helps.

Are you thinking about something that is cute, more like a scrapbook of preschool experiences, or something to show that your students are making progress or meeting certain standards?

I don't do a lot of stuff because since all my children have IEP's, I have to collect data for their goals and show progress that way. One thing I have done this year though, which I have found really interesting, is writing journals. I got the idea from Mrs Levin's Pre-K Pages website. Basically, you just give the children time to "write" each day. I also write at the same time. I love to look at the pages from the beginning of the year to now and show their parents when I meet with them.

We do a Memory book with different samples of things from the year to go home, to keep on record at school we do a name and picture sample at beginning and end of the year for 4K

I teach the children a different nursery rhyme each month. At the end of the month, we do a portfolio page to go along with the rhyme. For example:
Sept: Mary Had a Little Lamb (I copy a lamb onto a paper and have the children draw and color Mary and the school. When they are done, we glue a cotton ball to our little lamb)
Oct: Little Miss Muffet (I punch two holes - one at each end of the paper, thread some yarn through the wholes, then attatch a spider to the yarn. Now the kids can move the spider up and down on the paper. Then, I have the children draw and color little miss muffet.)
Nov: Peter Peter Pumpkin Eater ( I photo copy a large pumpkin with a door shape on it. I have the kids cut out the pumpkin, and draw a wife inside the door)
I use the same types of ideas for the rest of the rhymes we learn throughout the year:
Dec: Jack Be Nimble
Jan: Hickory Dickory Dock
Feb: Jack and Jill
Mar: Little Boy Blue
Apr: Humpty Dumpty
May: Hey Diddle Diddle
