I have decided to try something new and will be using a “Google Document” for the Student-Led Conference sign-up (there will be no paper copies coming home).
You should have already received an e-mail with a link to the “Google Document” sign-up sheet. You can also access the Google Doc by clicking here. Please click on the link and type your child’s name into one of the spots provided. There will be two students in each time slot as the they will be leading you through the conference themselves. All students are required to attend.
If you have trouble accessing the Google Doc, please let me know.
The conferences will be taking place on Wednesday, January 25th (3:00-6:00pm) and Thursday, January 26th (3:00-4:15pm).
I am sure the students will be excited to share with you what we have been doing in class! They have already started thinking about their own personal goals for this term. Our next step will be to discuss the purpose of these goals and the steps we need to take in order to achieve them.
In addition to discussing their goal with you, the students will also be giving you a tour of our new classroom and sharing some of their work with you.
We will be practicing next week to make sure that everyone is prepared, and of course I will be available to help facilitate if need be.
I will be happy to answer any questions informally, but please note that this will not be a formal sit-down meeting like last term.
