Anything to make our lives simpler, right? Well, this convenient IB PYP packet for Student Led Conferences in the upper elementary grades will hopefully do that for you. Even if you are not an IB school, these reflection sheets and scripts will work for you. You will find everything is ready to just print and go, however, if you wish to edit some of the parent letters and information sheets, I have provided a link where you can download those sheets here as Power Points for free and edit as you prefer.
You will find:
Special conference portfolio cover sheets
Cute welcome activity with self portraits and speech bubbles
Reflection sheets for the unit of inquiry
Goal setting reflection sheets
Reflection sheets for the exhibition
Learner Profile and IB Attitudes reflections.
3 trans disciplinary inquiry activities to implement with families during the conference
Task cards and worksheets for the activities
Parent information letter
Scripts for the students to use
Checklists for the students to use.
The family/student collaborative inquiries include:
Triptych inferring activity with fiction pictures
