    Student Led Conference
    By Laura H.

    Clip to ScrapBook
    I did these last year and LOVED it. I teach fourth grade. Each student had a folder with all sorts of papers, that we gathered the week before. We had a meeting schedule that the children practiced daily and followed infront of their parents. Here is what we did:

    1. Teachers introduce themselves and subject area
    2. Students began by presenting a choice piece of work (We gave them four choices and they choose one.)
    3. Teacher shared trimester assesments, writing prompt grade and one positive, one negative about the child
    4. Student played dice math game with thier parent (only two rolls per person) and we said they could finish it up at home
    5. Student told parent how to write a 5 point paragraph
    6. By this time, the next group had knocked on the door (we tell them to do this with a sign on the door. It keeps things going). If the parents have any questions, we usually take them then. But since another group is waiting, it cuts down on long, drawn out conversations.
    7. We had the parents a letter asking them to mail a letter to school address to their child. We snuck this to them on the way out the door. It tells the child how proud they are of them and discusses what they can improve on together. The kids LOVED getting mail at school that was positive from home.
