A couple of blogs with ideas for successful Parent/Teacher conferences...

As you begin your preparation for important and rewarding conversations with parents next week, I wanted to share two links that directly relate to teacher ideas about conferences.

Upper Elementary Snapshots: Includes a parent survey and the idea of sending "thank you" notes

Beyond Parent-Teacher Conferences: Building Connections That Last

You Can Be a W.E. 14 Presenter!

Tarah sent out a couple of e-mails to staff in hopes to offer a diverse selection of PD and sharing on December 12. A couple of our teachers have shared with me what they might like to present, and I would like to get "the juices flowing" for others to consider this opportunity. Some ideas that I think our staff could bring to this day include: "Genius Hour," using the ANIE and ANIE Jr. formative math assessment, Class Meetings and Cross Age Buddies. If you would like, I can help with brainstorming and planning...and even co-presenting! Please be in touch if you would like to talk more about being a presenter at W.E. 14.
