Product Description
Letters of recommendation requests coming in last minute? Tired of students asking for recommendation letters by the end of the day or week? You need "The Incredible Recommendation Packet!" No prep, just print, implement expectations, and calm.

This packet has everything you need to run the smoothest, most mannerly recommendation season in school history while, in true school counseling style, building the life skills and self-efficacy of your scholars. It includes…

♥ An “ About Letter of Recommendation” handout complete with a step-by-step guide to soliciting recommendations,

♥ A “Hacking the Recommendation Process” form to track recommendation request, thank you cards delivered, dates recommendations are due, and more,

♥ Six copies of the “Letter of Recommendation Fact Sheet” for students to complete and give to recommenders,

♥ Six “Future Recommender” cards for students to include with their initial request if they’d like, and

♥ Six fun, hip thank you cards.

♥ Examples of all forms “filled out.” Since these are included immediately after this “About” section and not as part of the actual packet, you can choose to print them for students with IEPs/504s/who need additional scaffolding, for all students, or for no students.

All you have to do is print on the “staple for me” setting, set the expectation, and hand out. It’s that easy!

*Note: You will need to print thank you cards front to back but the rest of the packet one sided. Because your time is valuable, starting on page 35 I’ve included a second copy of the packet with blank sheets inserted so you can print the entire thing double sided to start with. Every printer has different default settings, so I still recommend printing 1 copy and assuring the thank you cards are aligned correctly once folded.

With this download, students have everything they need to organize themselves, provide recommenders with necessary information, track who they ask and when they asked, track upcoming deadlines, ask letter writers if they're open to being references in the future (optional), and write thank you cards upon receiving their letter of recommendation! Think about the calm that could bring to your fall semester chaos.

When I was a school counselor my Kindness Club was one of the most popular clubs in the school. That's right, teens showed up during their lunch hour to complete random acts of kindness of their own free will, and they enjoyed it! Check out my Low Prep Kindness Club Bundle
to start your own.
