    This questionnaire can be used at the beginning of the school year, or included in packets distributed to incoming students throughout the year. These questions are aimed at informing the teacher about each student’s home life and allows parents to share information and concerns with the teacher in a discrete way. This is a great way to collect insight from every parent about their child prior to the first round of parent teacher conferences.

    • Child’s Name?

    • Nickname (if any)?

    • Child’s Age?

    • Date of Birth?

    • What languages are most used at home?

    • Who lives with your child (name, relationship to student, occupation)?

    • What do your child’s daily schedule and household routines include?

    • What does your child like to do for fun outside of school?

    • How would you describe your child’s personality?

    • What do you most admire about your child?

    • What are your child’s strengths? How would you describe your child’s learning style?

    • What motivates your child?

    • Do you have any academic or social concerns about your child?

    • What are your goals for your child this school year?

    • Any additional information I should know about your child, or questions I can answer for you?

    Editable Family Insight Questionnaire: A PowerPoint document with the questions listed above ready for you to edit to fit the unique needs of your classroom.

    Editable Google Forms Family Insight Questionnaire: The questions listed above formatted in a Google Form, allowing you to collect student information & family insight in digital format. You can send this Google Form as is, or make tweaks to meet your unique classroom needs before sending it to parents & guardians.

    EDITABLE MEET THE TEACHER LETTER:

    This Meet the Teacher page is a short letter that allows students and parents to get to know more about you at the beginning of the year. This page can be placed on students’ desks the morning of the first day along with their bellwork or can be used in your Back To School Night packet for parents.

    Included is a sample letter along with blank templates that can be edited using PowerPoint to display your own bio. Also included are blank stationery templates that can be used to coordinate your communication with parents throughout the year.

    Creating a strong student portfolio is an essential component for showing student growth and evidence of learning progress. This toolkit of editable Microsoft PowerPoint documents is designed to help you for create a student portfolio that can be used first as a tool for parent teacher conferences, and then as a learning memory book at the end of the school year. The following editable components are included:

    Portfolio Labels: Enter the names from your roster, print on Avery 5160 Address Labels, and stick to the folders within your student portfolios.

    Way To Go and Ways To Grow Pages: Use these editable templates to share student strengths and goals each quarter/trimester. You can choose to create a separate page each quarter/trimester or display information for each quarter/trimester on a single page.

    Student Reflection and Goal Setting Pages: Use these editable templates to create personal reflection and goal setting pages for your students each quarter/trimester. You may choose to share student responses at parent conferences, add them to student portfolios, or keep them for reference as you confer with students throughout the year.

    Learning Letter: Use this editable template to write your students a letter inquiring about their feelings and perspective related to school each quarter/trimester. You may choose to share student responses at conferences, add them to their portfolios, or keep them solely for your personal reference.

    Portfolio Covers and Reflection Pages: When you are ready to send your student portfolios home, edit these printables as needed, have students complete the reflection pages, and compile the portfolio contents.

    R.E.S.P.E.C.T. ACTIVITIES & BEHAVIOR MANAGEMENT PLAN (Print and Digital):

    This classroom management approach is a highly-effective tool for teaching students to be consistently mindful, respectful, responsible, and independent. It is also a powerful, yet discreet way to hold students accountable for their behavior decisions. When students know they will be asked in a respectful way to reflect on and correct their behavior, respect is given in return. Digital and print versions now included.

    Stigmas of poor behavior created and reinforced by more public behavior management systems like clip charts or red cards are completely eliminated with R.E.S.P.E.C.T.

    Overall, this approach to behavior management both promotes and demonstrates respectful behavior, and is all based on the guiding principle:

    Respect

    Each other

    Self

    Property

    Environment

    Collaboration

    Thoughts

    The tools included will guide you through 5 steps, taking you from preparation to implementation of the R.E.S.P.E.C.T. Classroom Behavior Management System.
