Parent teacher conferences are stressful. There are so many things that teachers want to show parents that it’s hard to remember everything! Hand each of your students one of these pages and let them tell their parents about how they’ve done! One less thing for you to do! Also, I’ve found that giving students a self-reflection page before handing out grades, helps kids be less surprised by their grades.

I don’t know about you, but I think there’s more to an apology than a sneering “sorry!” I tell ya, kids these days don’t know how to apologize… and it drives me nuts! Here’s a poster I recently saw in a lower grade classroom that I thought NAILED the issue. Although it’s not the most glamorous, it serves the purpose.
Then I thought to myself, “Dang! I need one of these for my classroom and my house, and as a bumper sticker, and on a T-shirt…” *sigh* I’ll just start with my classroom. So I made this one for myself (and you) that I could print on a regular size piece of printer paper.
