    1st grade student led

    I've done this two different ways-both times during spring conferences though so the kids are a little more independant. One way was stations set up around the room for each subject (s.s./sci.; making words-language arts; reading/journals; math games; and computer) and the children take their parents around to each station and show what they have been working on in that content area. This was timed and parents did have time slots so they would visit with me also. Another type was more of the open house where the children had a list of areas they were to show their parents-basically show what they do at their literacy stations, show their writer's workshop spiral, log onto the computer and show their slideshow they created, etc.. They were to check off the list as each station was visited. Music, gym and art rooms were also on the list as places to visit. During this time I would visit with parents at stations and simply interact. Of course, for both types of conferences, I had the children do a lot of role playing before hand and made sure they understood the expectations for student led conferences.
