    Student Led Conferences

    We were required to run such conferences at my last school. I have sheets to reflect on learning in math, reading and writing. I have student sheets to prepare for the conference (checklists), evaluation forms, forms for favorites like read alouds and special projects and much more. We stored our "portfolio" of stuff in pizza boxes that the kids decorated with artwork, photos and mementos from the year. They made great long term storage boxes where families could add items from extra curricular and community activities for the year. We practiced the conference with peers prior to the actual day. I staggered parent start times every 15 minutes and often had 3 conferences going at once. I did very little but thank families for coming and snapping a photo of each child as they presented the material. These photos went home later. It was a great experience but time consuming to organize.
