At the end of the year I like to have what I call 3-way conferences including the child. I feel it is important for the child to take ownership of their own learning and progress. At this conference, the child does just that. The parent, the child, and myself all fill out a questionnaire prior to the conference day. We meet together to discuss our answers to the questions. It is fun and rewarding for everyone. I have included the letters I send to parents, and the questionnaires that we use.
