We usually have one parent-teacher conference a year, in February, where the parent gets a report card which I then go over. The report card is completed again in June, but no conference. The conference is usually about 10 minutes, and it takes me that long to go through the report card explaining and then they are on their merry way. I was just informed that now I have to do conferences the first week of December, along with February. There will be no report card, it's supposed to be an informal brief progress discussion. Without the report card, I feel like I have no direction to go in with these. I'd like to make some sort of physical thing for the parents to take away with them, but NOT make it a ton of work for me to do for 40 kids in 3 weeks, especially with Thanksgiving coming. I was thinking of making a brief checklist of skills that the children are working on, with an area to check off strength or weakness. Or maybe a few select major things that we work on in school, and a few ways parents can work on them at home. I'm just not sure of how to go about this? Anyone have anything that they use, or know where I can find something to lead me in the right direction? I want these to be beneficial, but as painless as possible because they are so soon. Thanks!!
