I have a little secret to admit. I have no freebie today for Thrifty Thursday. No reason, or excuses. Somehow Thursday just appeared this week and I wasn’t prepared. Dang. So I thought I would do a throwback post with freebies that are pretty timely. I know conferences are creeping up, so here is a post about conferences. Please make sure to check the files to make sure all the links are still active and correct, just in case!
Since conferences start soon I thought I would share some of the conference forms and parent handouts I have collected over time. NONE of these are my original creations. I have tried to cite the original author or cite when I knew or recognized the work, but unfortunately most of this has been lost over time. I did take the content and “pretty it up.” If you are the author or recognize the work, please let me know so I can give credit where credit is due.
This sheet has helpful English and Grammar sites
This is a questionnaire to send home prior to conferences to get a feel for what a parent may want to discuss.
A collection of website in Reading, Writing, Spelling and Math
Double check to make sure all of the links are still active!
I DID NOT create this handout- I just added the graphics and fonts and such. This was originally on the Mosaic Listserv but the page it was from is not longer active. I could not find the exact document anywhere online? Does anyone remember this link?
I have created a conference check list
for teachers to use as a guide to prepare for conferences and also as a guide for discussion. It is available on Teachers Pay Teachers
for $2.00. The check list is a Word document and is customizable once it is downloaded. Please feel free to check it out!
Lots of good little nuggets! And now for your Thrifty Thursday deal of the week!
This pack has 6 hands-on activities that are standards based. They are made to either fit in a pocket like in the large picture on the right above OR in an interactive notebook. This pack will be a great supplement to my Frederick Douglass pack I am about to start working on. Right now I am making a Paul Revere version of the above and I am about 1/3 done!
This pack includes:
- The pocket to store materials in
- Small book with questions
- Character trait flip book using text evidence
- Step Book that can also be a short assessment
- Word Search
