Keep Sharing: Inviting Parents to the Student-Led Conferences

Is is possible to over share in today's social media world?  If so, then I will proudly call myself an 'over-sharer' just for this week.  This is what happens when you give a teacher a fall break - she has time to think and share!

When it was time for Student-Led Conferences, the students were given a letter that they were to complete themselves.  They were given no help, no editing or spelling tips - they were just asked to be honest and draw some sort of super hero cartoon.  Here are a few of those letters...
No one wants to get stuck in the middle of anything!  Love that comment!

Love that he didn't want his mom to find out about the 2's but wrote her about them in this letter.

Love that the cartoon includes a shout out to Student-Led Conferences.

It is a 'kid parent' conference.  She gets it.

Love how the cartoon shows Student-Led Conference success right from the start.

If you give students a chance to shine, they will shine.  These students created invitations too good to turn down.  Families all arrived at the designated conference times and delighted in all that the student's had to share.  It was a great moment in 3rd grade.
