Creating a Montessori Report


Recommended Posts

In this tutorial I will talk you through the steps of how to create a Report using the Montessori Snapshot template.

If you want to create a new report, click on the "Reports" button (1) on the top bar. You'll be automatically taken to your "Overview" page (2) which will show a list of the recent Reports. To start creating your Montessori report, click on "+ Montessori Snapshot" on the list on the right-hand side (3). As you can see on the picture below, there is also a template for 'Montessori Summative' which guides you through reflecting on and summarising progress without explicit reference to assessments made on Tapestry.




Once you have confirmed the template you'd like to use and selected the child you are writing the Report for, you will be taken to this screen:




Be sure to give your report a title (1) as reports cannot be saved without a title. You can set the report's status and date from the Options box (2).

Throughout the report you can choose to 'hide' certain sections or fields (3). If they are hidden, they will not show up in the finished report. Also, if any of the boxes contain no text they will be hidden by default. You can un-hide these at any point.

There is an Introduction box (4) for you to fill out any introductory information you feel is pertinent.

Next you'll see the first of the five areas of learning for the Montessori curriculum. Each area has its own section.




Assessments – Montessori activities assessed on Tapestry will be automatically filled from the most recent Summative Assessment. If you would like data from a different period, use the blue "Fill Assessments" button (1) to choose a different year or period.




Please note: if you have chosen the Montessori Summative template instead, you will not see the assessment section. Instead you will just see the Montessori areas and notes boxes for these.

Each Area of Montessori has a section for educators to write notes specifically for the child’s development in the area (2).

To view the child’s Montessori assessments, click to expand the assessment view (3). You’ll then see the sub-areas and you can navigate these like the assessment picker in observations (4). The Montessori activities will be listed beneath and as mentioned before, the Montessori activities which have been assessed on Tapestry will be automatically filled in (5). However, you can change them by simply using the drop-down menus. Please note, changing any of these assessments on the report will have no effect on the child's summative assessment screen.

If you would like to see the observations that contributed to this assessment, click the blue "observations" button (6) next to each activity.

After completing the Montessori areas, there are additional boxes to note learning in other areas.




These extra areas include boxes for Social and Emotional Learning (1) and Physical Development (2). You can also add any additional information relevant for the child in the Additional Information box (3).

You will then see that there are opportunities to include the family’s and child’s voice as part of the report too.




If you publish this report for relatives, the Relative Voice (1) and Child Voice (2) can be filled in by them at any point. However, you can also fill in these sections on their behalf if you wish.




At the bottom of the page you will find the 'Media' section. This will allow you to add any supporting documents, photos, videos or audio files. You can do this by clicking ‘Add Files’(1), selecting the files from your computer, and then clicking ‘Start Upload’ (2).

You can also remove any files you have added using the Delete button (3), or you can change the order of the files using the arrows on the right (4). Your order will be honoured once saved, but do note that documents show up in a different section to photos, videos and audio files. 

Once you're happy with everything, click 'Save Report' or 'Save and Add Another' and you're all done! (5)

You will see the finished version of the Report where you can add any comments. If you want to make your report visible to relatives, you just need to follow this tutorial.
