I wanted to give my students the opportunity to self-reflect about their learning before parent conferences, so I made up the form below to get an idea of their strengths and weaknesses. I really am enjoying reading these and how detailed they are! Click on the pic below to be taken to the free download.
Interactive Notebooks and Parent Conferences
If you would like to download these bookmarks to use in your class, click on the photos below! I give students one of each bookmark. This way, they can choose something they would like to IMPROVE on AND their BEST piece of work.
One reason I love using these bookmarks is it is totally student's choice! This is a place you can go to look at their progress and the evidence is presented right there. Once the students are done filling each out, they earmark the page like in the picture below. (I wrote one up, this student's name is fictitious!) On each day of conferences, I have the students that are up for the day, bring me their notebooks so I can pair them with the report cards and any other things I will be showing the parents. That way, everything stays pretty organized!!!
How do you get organized for parent conferences?
