This year do you have more students and less time? Then let Teachers Report Assistant come to your rescue during report card time this winter. Ever since I started using this free program, I have cut my narrative comment writing time in more than half. So stop dreading the task of writing your report card comments and download this tool today! Click "read more" to see two Jing how-to videos that will help you get started with this stress- and time-saving tool today!

As class sizes in most schools have increased this year, so have the number of report card comments needing to be written. For many of us teachers, this is a part of our job we see as valuable, but it's not our favorite thing on the to-do list. For parents, however, the report card narrative comments are vital in giving them a better picture of where their child is. Here, teachers can better explain what some of the letters and numbers on the report cards mean. For this reason, we have to make sure this narrative piece is written well. So many teachers spend hours upon hours writing paragraphs for each of their students. It does not have to be that way any longer!

I used to sit down in front of a blank computer screen dreading the daunting task ahead of me. I am so glad that I found Teachers Report Assistant several years ago, and I have been sharing this wonderful tool with teachers ever since.

Take a look at this Jing video introduction to get a quick glimpse at Teachers Report Assistant and to see how I use it to save me hours of time writing narrative comments.

Impressed and ready to get started using this time-saving tool? Well, take a look at this Jing about the Teachers Report Assistant to help you set up your comment bank so you’re ready to write.

I hope you give this tool a try, and that you likewise see your writing time cut in at least half.

Carrie, I am so glad that you have tried it out. It has saved me so many hours and I am glad it is helping other teachers! Please share this with your colleagues! Smiles, Megan

I have been struggling with reducing my writing time, too! Typing comments for 28 kiddos has been very time consuming this year. Thank you for the wonderful Jings to help me get going quickly with this program.

I read this blog when you originally posted it and have been anxiously waiting for report card season so I could try it out! Since I'd been building in comments as the weeks and units passed, when I sat down to write comments tonight I got 26 done in less than 2 hours! This is wonderful! Thanks so much!!!!

Sorry. They do not have a MAC version. I wish they would for all the teachers that use MAC. I have been searching for one like this program. Does anyone know of any? Smiles, Megan

Great way to do this, but is there a MAC version?

Looks better than the cut and paste setup I use now. I can't seem to find a MAC version of this? Help?
