Get to know your new students with this information survey in both English and Spanish. I send it home on the first day of school. It asks for family information, (pets, siblings, etc.) medical information, (allergies, conditions, etc.) reading interests, academic strengths and concerns, and personal strengths and interests. Parents fill it out, and it's a great way to learn things about your students that aren't included in the school data system. It's also a great way to get to know the parents, because I keep the survey in hand when I make the first phone call of the year. I keep the survey in my parent communication notebook all year.
