📝 Anecdotal Notes

Anecdotal notes are brief notes teachers take as they observe children. Teachers can write anecdotal notes recording their observations of a student’s behaviors, skills, attitudes, performance, and even classroom incidents! These notes are compiled and used as documentation not only for report cards and parent conferences but also for getting students placed in a school intervention program.
