Back to School IB PYP Portfolio Cover Sheets

Back to School IB PYP Portfolio Cover Sheets

These IB PYP cover sheets can be used for the on-going working binder and/or for the IB PYP Portfolio. These sheets are designed to be used as a mini reflection sheet as the you introduce each new unit of inquiry. There are two forms of the portfolio sheets and are created to make the children think about the new central idea and the lines of inquiry as they write them on the cover sheet. The second type asks the children to think about the new central idea and to illustrate their thinking about it, along with noting down any questions/inquiries that may have as you introduce the unit. UK & USA spelling. They are great to separate each unit of inquiry within the daily working binder or to use as a cover sheet for each unit within their portfolio. I have used these sheets also within our Student Led Conference preparation. Easily differentiated and suitable for grades 2-6. You will find a collection of 12 new unit sheets, titled with the name of each theme. Use them with:Introducing new units.End of unit reflectionsPortfoliosStudent Led Conferences.
