Writing reports can be tedious, so I compiled a list of 100 ESL Report Card Comments.
You can download it from my website.

Back in the hakwan days we had to do report cards and there was a really helpful site where you could insert the name and gender of your student and check a few boxes so that there would be some accuracy and it would spit out a wonderful report you could copy and paste.  Shaved loads of time off a truly meaningless and tedious task.  The only parents that actually read the comments were the kindy and pre-k ones and those we did by hand.  I cannot remember the name of the site. 


Around 1998 or so, I made a MS Access database that would do this.

I've used this in the past.  EXCELLENT resource, but I had forgotten where to find it. 

Thank you!

I've also used this in class not too long ago. It was really helpful and engaged everyone in taking part. Very helpful and makes everyone's lives (especially teachers!) easier  :cheesy:

Are these report cards you are writing for students in an international school, hagwon, or newly implemented in the public schools in Korea?

One of the best parts of my month is reflecting  on the performance of my students and putting it exactly in words, however praising or cutting it may be. I let chips fall where they may. You want my comments? I'll give you exactly what i think or,... what they need (90% of the time, as, hey, sometimes pedagogy trumps truth 'cuz yer/we're a teacher, Teacher, not the wrath of God. Help them do better.).

Life's to live! Live! Breathe. Relax. Enjoy. Animals teach us to focus on family, friends and avoid danger. Get what you need and get along with others. That said, some rock the boat, but they know capsizin' it means they're sunk. Some sink, let's swim! The sea's big, great, but has undercurrents.

The best parts of my month are every day that I get to teach.  And at public school my attitude is "You're paying me to teach, NOT desk warm" so I go around the school and find errant children and teach them things. For example, I will point at one foot and say "shoe" then I will point at both feet and say "shoes."  It's practical and real world teaching.  The kids get excited.  I can tell from the way they always want to play hide and seek when they see me approaching. 

The worst part of my month was the last two weeks where I had to take vacation.  Fortunately, I have a new friend and even though her English is far from perfect, she still seems quite attentive as I regularly make my teaching day a topic of conversation.  We even took a trip to Bangkok together and she was left speechless by the way I would find a teachable moment around every corner.  My impromptu lesson on the need to learn how to swim to a group of kids on a ferry boat was met with stunned silence.  Unfortunately, every living member of her family has succumbed to covid since we returned and she has been unable to meet due to the succession of funeral obligations.
