At my school, we only have conferences in the fall… I’m feeling thankful for that right now as I’m seeing more bloggers getting ready for conferences! I enjoy meeting my families and getting to talk about my students, but those late nights and long days are things I don’t miss now that I’ve finished them! 🙂
I have shared a conference goal setting sheet at my TpT store. I have my students fill this out to share their own personal growth goals for math, reading, and writing. They also have to think about how they can make their goal and how their family can help too. I love using this and having them share it during their conference. I am a firm believer that students can (and need to be!) accountable for their learning and this is one tool I use to help them accomplish that accountability.
