During conferences, I always share their child's first published piece, their DRA-2 reading scores, and their child's goal-setting sheet that he/she filled out in class. This is a nice way to have the student's voice in a conference (our P/T Conferences are adults-only, no kiddos) and it also gives us some nice talking points.
We filled these out in class today and I really like the responses that come back. Some need a bit of tweaking, so I will touch base with those kids to redo or add more detail to a section, but overall, kids have some nice ideas about how they want to improve this year.
|Loved this little girl's response when it came to reading goals- she said she gets too into a book, so she needs help to "take her eyes off the book" and stop reading when it's time ;) If only this were every kiddo's "problem" :)|
Are your parent-teacher conferences coming up? What are some ways you incorporate student voice?
