Student-led conferences are an exciting opportunity for the children to take responsibility for their learning and to celebrate their progress. They will do this by showing you various samples of their work and sharing some of our classroom routines. In our class, the children will have a menu of stations to share with you during your conference time. I have scheduled 40 minute blocks, so you will have ample time to enjoy each station.
During the conference, please remember that this is a celebration of your child's growth and progress. You might want to ask your child open-ended questions about their work like:
- What was your favorite part of this project?
- What are you most proud of in this subject?
- What has surprised you in your learning?
If you have lingering questions regarding your child's academic or social progress after the student-led conference, please contact me for an additional conference time. I would be happy to meet with you.
