STAR WARS Parent-Teacher Conference Pack

This is for all of my teacher friends who love Melonheadz Star Wars characters as much as I do!

Two files are included in this Parent-Teacher Conference Pack. One is loaded with Print-n-Use forms.  The other is a PowerPoint file with editable forms. This pack also has lots of options for coordinating with parents as well as creating progress reports that work for you and your students/parents.

Here is  peek at what is included:

This form you would send home and have your students’ parents give you 3 dates/times that they are available. With the other set of forms (see below) you would set a time/day for each parent to meet with you (based on the sign-up sheet). They would return the bottom half of the form to you with their reply.

Use this next set of forms to find out what your students’ parents concerns are, and what your students think about their own progress.

And now, here are the options for gathering all of your data and generating a progress report or student summary. Choose the one that works for you and your students/parents.

Now, you are ready to hold your conferences! Be sure to have this sign-in sheet printed and some Padawan Love Notes ready for the parents to leave their children. 

This set will be on sale through Friday! Hope you love it!
