I send this form home the first week of school...or send it home on back to school night.
This form asks many important questions that helps the teacher better understand the child from the parent's perspective.
Some of the question topics covered:
-Name, Nickname, Address, Phone Number...
-Emergency contact info
-Health problems and allergies
-Interest/favorites of the child
-Family primary language/holidays
-Previous school experiences
-Wishes for current school year
