Parent Conferences

Can you believe it's time for Parent Conferences?  At our school corporation, we will do conferences with parents on Wednesday and Thursday from 4:00 until 8:00.  It makes for such LONG days!!

I like to make my parent conference forms simple yet easy to complete!  Since I have a multi-grade classroom of 2nd and 3rd graders, I also like to switch up my forms from year to year.  Obviously, my main goal is to give parents a good idea of how their child is performing in my classroom.  Over the years, I have found that a checklist works best. I am using the Parent Teacher Conference form available in my Teacher Notebook store.  It can be personalized to fit your needs. 

In addition, I know parents love to hear from their kids so I created the Self-Report Card.  The kiddos can use it to let parents and teachers know how they really feel about what's happening at school.  Sometimes, I find that a student doesn't feel so good about writing, but is a talented writer. This form is a great tool to help identify a child's self-esteem and know just where he/she might need a boost to the ego.  The kiddos have to write a letter to their parents on the back of the Self-Report Card which always brings a smile to Mom and Dad's faces!!  It's a great conversation piece during Parent-Teacher Conferences.
Enjoy this Self-Report Card as a freebie! 
Happy Conferencing!!
