BEGINNING of the YEAR
Get to know your students by gathering insight from parents. Here are three forms for you to choose from. I tried to keep it to one page so parents were not overwhelmed. I started asking for parent insight a few years ago. I loved connecting with parents. I found that my teaching improved when I knew my students better. I hole-punch papers and keep them in a binder with my calling log. While I am dialing parents, I am able to read over the parent notes!
