Student led parent-teacher conferences are a great way to involve students in their education! Parents enjoy attending because they get to see things from their child's perspective. Students enjoy presenting because they get to be involved in the process and not just sit on the sidelines and hear what their teacher thinks. These forms can help you organize your own student led conferences this school year.
This resource includes templates for you to customize with what you want your student led conferences to look like. Ideas have been given on each template page so that you can see how I run mine in 5th grade. All content (other than the page titles) on the templates is editable. All pages are black and white, which will save you ink and allow you to print on colored paper.
