If a child can't learn the way we teach, maybe we should teach the way they learn.

When students lead, they succeed

The preparation and stress to prepare for the SLC’s (Student Led Conferences) was more than I had anticipated, however, the result made it all worthwhile.  I was so proud of my students leading their conferences with their parents.  I was surprised that some of my most outspoken students were the most timid and anxious.  I had not realized how nervous they were.  I loved seeing how the parents interacted with their children. I allowed for 30 minutes for each conference, which seemed like too much time, but we used every minute.  I think one conference ended 5 minutes early, but other than that, it was needed.  It also allowed me to discuss some important issues regarding individual students. Overall, I received positive feedback from parents and I felt really pleased about the entire day.  I look forward to moving to the next step and developing deeper reflections with the 4th graders. I am sending home a survey to the parents and hopefully I will get some positive comments to share.
