    Hi all, it is report card time here in first grade. Last quarter we did not have to do comments, but this quarter is the first time I have ever done student comments. Are these comments supposed to be all about the good things or is it supposed to be honest (things that are not going well, things the student does/gets in trouble for, etc.)? If anyone could post an example of what their comments looked like that would be awesome. I just need some guidelines on what things should be mentioned/not mentioned. Thanks!

    That would probably best be answered by other teacher in your building or admin. I’d assume the culture of the school would dictate what comments are appropriate or expected.

    Before the internet, my friend had a book of comments. I bet you could google it and find examples. Usually, you start of w/ something positive. Next you tell what we are working on ( keeping our hands to ourselves, taking turns, or whatever naughty behavior you might need to report in a positive way.) You are supposed to end on a positive note too.
    Unfortunately, many parents don't catch the middle report when you do it this way. It is less likely to make the parents mad. At 1 school, we used to tell what level the student was functioning on too for reading and math.
