The conference sheets that are provided by MAISA, do not give us teachers any room to make notes, or do not even provide us with conference sheets on some modules!
I made these conference sheets so that I can write more notes. I have room to write about what the student needs to work on, so I can go back to that objective next conference.
Using this sheet is an easy way after the unit is over, to have an overall unit grade, besides the actual paper they are writing. I plan to even copy this conference sheet and have it on hand for parent teacher conferences.
I print out one sheet per student, and put it into a binder and just go around the room while my students are writng and jot down my notes. A little idea for you is to color code your students name by level. This student’s name is colored red because they are low in reading. I conference my red students every Monday and Wednesday. This way it is easier to keep track of who I conferenced.
I have provided two different styles of grading: ES, MS, AS, and CA and then your basic grading letters, A, B, C, D.
Unit 5, is not on here, MAISA says it is coming in January, I will add this later
