Sample Phrases to use while documenting
Have you ever been documenting or writing an observation and were literally lost for words? It’s happened to all of us. The most important thing to remember is try to give examples of what the child did and how it links into your curriculum framework. These phrases are here to guide and hopefully inspire you through the writing process… Feel free to leave some ideas for us so we can add to the knowledge pool to help other educators.
