Being a parent is tough enough, but when your child can’t speak for themselves it has to be even more nerve racking to go throughout the day wondering if their teacher or caregiver truly understands their child’s behavior and needs. I use this form to get to know my new students and to help build a good relationship with parents. We all need to be on the same team!
Hand them out to parents during open house, the first day of school, or when a new student joins your class. It will make your job easier because you will now know what motivates, scares, and brings joy to your students. Update the form as needed through the year.
