I send this questionnaire home with parents in my students' Open House packet and give them about a week to return it to me. I found that it taught me many things about my new students that helped me interact with them in those formative first days of school. In addition, I immediately knew of some of their interests and was able to match them with books they might like right from the start. It's a great reference to keep in each student's file and look back on at the end of the year to see how much has changed! Enjoy!
