Parent Teacher Conferences

Parent Teacher conferences are around the corner. Ever feel like you are just sitting there listening..sort of? Go in prepared with some questions. How? Talk to your kids. Ask them about two good things at school and two things they'd change. Older kids can be approached with more direct things like, 'I'm going to your conferences in a week. Anything I need to know? How's it been in Mrs. Jones' class? What's your best class? One you don't like as much?"
Then formulate questions for the teacher. Have some positives to say also and always ask if there is anything you can do at home.
More tomorrow about how to prep for that conference you are dreading.
