I am so excited to be joining my Primary Powers gals for an awesome blog hop: Get Organized!
My middle name should be Organization! Nothing makes me happier. I little OCD...yes! But, hey, it works for me. I am known as the "Binder Queen" at my school. It's true. Everything goes into a binder, with plastic sleeves, AND labels.
I would LOVE to share with you how I get organized for parent conferences without all the stress. I have created my own conference binder that has all the forms and information I could need in ONE place!
1. Personal Binder Cover: This just makes everything easier to handle.
2. Sign in sheet. This allows a record of all your parent conferences and communication to be in one place. When conferences are over, I make a copy for my administrator as documentation.
3. No matter how hard we try to find the PERFECT date and time for every family, someone always forgets or misses their scheduled time. This form is a quick reminder to send home if you choose to reschedule.
4. I make all my copies on different colored paper and put them in the same plastic sleeve as my master copy. This way I have everything ready to go at a moment's notice.
5. This form is my lifesaver! It has all the information I need to give to the parents all on one, neat, organized piece of paper. I have made this form for the beginning of the year and middle of the year progress updates. It is so easy and quick to fill out. I feel silly that I didn't start using this format sooner in my teaching career. Live and learn...
Are you ready to get organized and make your own conference binder too? All of these forms and MORE are in my EDITABLE Parent Teacher Conference Forms packet.
I like to give parents the opportunity to pick their conference time. I have found when I do this, there is a much GREATER chance they will keep their scheduled time. I add the conference dates and times to this form, make copies, and send it home. If you would like to use this form too, click on the picture or HERE to download your free copy.
Time for some more organizational tips.... head on over to Second Grade Perks and see what Heather is organizing on her blog.
