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!
