One way that I make the conference meaningful is by giving each parent a top 10 list of what their child needs to know walking in the door of 3rd grade. You can easily compile this list for your grade level by talking with the team members of the next grade level at your school. Parents always value this information. It's also a great springboard for me to be able to address areas of strength and weakness in their child. Top 10 3rd Grade Skills
One way that I make this conference special is with a fun folder to store the information I'm giving them. This quarter I made this cover sheet. The folders were all laid out on a table and the parents had to pick which smile belonged to their child.
Now I'm off for SPRING BREAK!!
Blessings to you,
