This week will be our first parent teacher conferences for the year. Last year, I found some neat ideas to add to conferences. The first one that I liked, I found at What the Teacher Wants. It is a kid's personal grade card. I found it very interesting to see how each kid felt they were doing in a variety of areas. Here is what it looks like:
The second thing that I found that I liked was just something to give out to the parents at the conferences. It gives a lot of websites that the kids can go to and work on various academic areas. I found this very helpful especially since we are living in a technology world. I found this at Mandy's Tips for Teachers:
It also includes websites to help with math, spelling and grammar. It is a great resource.
How do you do your conferences and have you added anything that you found helpful to your parent teacher conferences? I would love to hear about them.
Hope you have a great weekend!
