Instructor Response Checklist

$3.00

(observation checklist for non-parental use)
There will be instances when a child receives instruction and guidance from someone other than his or her parent, but parents will want to know how the child is performing during that time. This checklist makes it easy. It’s a simple Montessori-based checklist that the instructor fills out to report how the child spent his or her time. It is especially helpful in cases of multiple instructors, providing a simple way for parents to evaluate the quality of instruction and make decisions about which activities most align with the family’s educational objectives.

Note: This checklist is intended to serve as a guide; with a wide spectrum of questions presented, not all of the questions may be suitable to your child’s unique situation and so you may prefer to edit the list accordingly.

Reading Record (reading category checklist)

Reading is as essential to the Montessori method as it is to any other way of learning. Parents may wish to record reading trends of their children as part of language arts curriculum or as another tool for observing their child and gauging their own role of guide as educator. Our reading record allows families to follow their child’s reading activities by quickly categorizing materials and making notations such as book length, reading difficulty and genre.
