Ideas anybody??

I am planning a series of monthly sessions for my students’ parents on reading. More specifically I plan to discuss the approach to teaching reading (Reading Workshop) that I use in my classroom as well as how I assess children (observations, one-to-one conferences, conversations, etc) in order to determine what to teach and what configurations (individual, small group, whole class) will best meet their needs. I am also planning to teach parents about miscue analysis and to share some samples from the classroom, without using children’s names of course.

I think the first session, just like the first day of school, is important as far as first impressions are concerned. I want to draw parents in and whet their appetite for future sessions at the same time that I want to give them something concrete to take home to try with their children.

I have some ideas of things I’ve done in the past but I’d love to hear yours. So, fire away!

  1. Hi no teacher left behind,
    I'm glad that my blog has motivated you to revive your blog.

    Today was the first parent session and I think it went well even though there were just a handful of parents present; 3:45 on a school day isn't always an easy time for parents to come to a school event. I will be posting key ideas, soon.
