    parent conference journal entry

    At my parent teacher conferences I leave my students morning journals out and a basket of pencils. They can read through the jounal and then leave a message for their child to read the next day. If they ae not done with the journal and it is their turn to speak with me, they generally come in for conference and then when we are finished they return to complete the journal. I love having the journals out there in the hall, it keeps the parent busy and the wait time doesn't seem as long.

    At the second conference I will put writings and art work in the hall. The parents still have a little note to fill out to make sure that they see the child's work and to leave them a note the for the next day. Of course the only problem with this is with the parents that don't show up. I will try and find an older sibling to leave them a note in their journal or I will write one myself. I would never want any student disappointed because of their parents not writing something in their journal.
