At the beginning of the year I create an AppleWorks database with the
information I know about my students. Then I either send the page home
or have the page at Open House for the parents to check and complete.
I like having the names of siblings and pets, too, so I can help with
spelling when we are writing about our family or pets. When the pages
are returned I bind them in a book for quick access to the information.
It's easy to grab when we go on a field trip or for emergencies. I do
keep the book in a secure area so that the information is guarded. See
