Parent Teacher Conference - Forms





Parent teacher conferences are coming up here in our district (October). Pictured above are two forms I would always have during those conferences. 

The first is a student self-evaluation form. It is a two page document (only one page shown above) where they rate themselves with easy to fill in faces (first page) and then write answers to questions on page two (i.e. what do you like about coming to school, what is an area you do well in, what is an area you need to improve in, etc.). Children are remarkably honest on these forms and it helps guide the conference. One year I had a child say that they needed to work on their anger management issues (which was true but I wasn't sure how to bring it up to the parents!). 

The second was a conference checklist. Inevitably I would forget something and it would annoy me so I developed the checklist to help me remember. I would make parents sign it for my records and cut off the bottom part for them (it contained helpful websites and passwords). 

I put both of these forms on line. To edit you need to click on "file" and then "make a copy".
