As a one-time 7th grade reading teacher, I really wanted to get a preview of my student's reading attitudes and abilities. so I made this student profile sheet.
The top three sections gave me basic information about my student and his or her family. And the emergency number was handy, whether I had to reach a parent about a sudden illness or a sudden drop in grades!
The Favorites section gave me lots of information for building a relationship with a new students. (For example, if a student loved the San Antonio Spurs, I could talk basketball with him to build rapport).
Finally, the Reading Memories section gave me a preview of my student's reading attitudes and ability. (I could quickly identify students who would need added support without testing).
