I can't believe that parent- Teacher conferences are starting TOMORROW! Woo- Hoo! That means that in just a few weeks we have Thanksgiving Break and then soon after that is the long Winter Holidays! Our district was moving toward a more balanced calendar last year. The Board decided to return to the more traditional calendar this school year. Now that I have had a taste of those fall breaks, I must say I miss it dearly! How spoiled I got in just one year!
Since conferences start tomorrow I thought I would share some of the conference forms and parent handouts I have collected over time. NONE of these are my original creations. I have tried to cite the original author or cite when I knew or recognized the work, but unfortunately most of this has been lost over time. I did take the content and "pretty it up." If you are the author or recognize the work, please let me know so I can give credit where credit is due.
This sheet has helpful English and Grammar sites
This is a questionnaire to send home prior to conferences to get a feel for what a parent may want to discuss.
A collection of website in Reading, Writing, Spelling and Math
Double check to make sure all of the links are still active!
I DID NOT create this handout- I just added the graphics and fonts and such. This was originally on the Mosaic Listserv but the page it was from is not longer active. I could not find the exact document anywhere online? Does anyone remember this link?
I have created a conference check list for teachers to use as a guide to prepare for conferences and also as a guide for discussion. It is available on Teachers Pay Teachers for $2.00. The check list is a Word document and is customizable once it is downloaded. Please feel free to check it out!
I will give away a free copy of the conference sheet below to the first 3 visitors that leave a comment correctly guessing the number of conferences that I have Monday that actually show up. It should be interesting since even I don't know the answer yet!!!
I will announce the winner on Tuesday!
