As you prepare for a student narrative observation, begin by simply writing “Narrative Observation Form” centered at the top of piece of paper. Next write “Child’s name” and the name of the child you are observing, the date and time. Follow with “Child’s age” and the child’s exact age in years and months. Finally write “Observer’s name” and your name with “Setting” and a brief description of the physical location where you are making the observations. If you plan on or are required to do repeated observations, creating an example of a narrative report in preschool on the computer can streamline the process with a printed option.
