This is a sheet that I send home to families and pass out to students to complete on day 1 or 2. It asks the student/parent to tell me about himself or the child in a million word or less. I have graphics along the edges to give examples of things the person can write about. The most important piece of the sheet is the last graphic. I explain that I would like to know something they feel is important. Maybe they have after school responsibilities, have siblings to care for, cannot do homework at home, etc. I have gotten a lot of really good information from this sheet.
