Bragging Rights for you kid - that's the worksheet that every parent wants to fill out!
This is a worksheet that I put together to give out on Back-to-School night. I teach high school, and so have over a hundred students a day. It makes it hard to make a personal connection with each parent. I wanted something that allowed the parents to share their thoughts about their children with me. I wanted to set the tone for positive interactions to start our year off on a good note - so no forms that ask for where your child is weak or needs help. Another plus is that parents will often share some tidbit of information that is fun to know about their child. This helps me as a teacher to see their child in another light outside our classroom interactions. Even super-cool high school students will smile when you share a reason their parents are proud of them or when I can slip into our conversation one of the ways that a parent bragged on them.
This worksheet is 2 pages. I print it out front and back to make for an easier handout. I've decorated it with different shapes to make the template more fun. There is a border of stars around the edge - because all students are Super Stars in their parents eyes.
Some of the things I ask parents to do:
~~Brag on your child
~~Tell me your child's strengths
~~What makes your child happy?
For $2 - you will receive a 2 page PDF document Back-to-School Parent Worksheet, as seen in the thumbnail preview at the right. If you have any questions - I'd prefer you ask me BEFORE purchasing rather than leaving less than flattering feedback after purchasing. :)
