I also color code my conference reports. I like to focus on the positives first. (You should always start conferences with positives so that parents are more willing to listen to your advice about any areas of concern.) When talking about areas of concern, I like to list just a couple of top areas to work on. I noticed that when I gave parents a long list of things to work on, they often got overwhelmed and ended up not working on anything. Ever since I started narrowing down to a couple of areas, I’ve seen a big improvement.
On the day of conferences I send out these reminders and stick them right on my kids’ shirts! This extra step ensures that parents don’t forget their conference.
All these resources are included in my conference resource bundle. I received a request for a sign in sheet so I included one for you! If you own my bundle, please re-download to get the updates for free 🙂
So much to do in the fall! On to November! 🙂
