Student led conferences are something that I am very passionate about in upper elementary! They increase parent involvement in a child’s education, empower students, give students high accountability, and are useful for all involved parties – even those students who are doing so well that you feel like there’s nothing to have a conference for.

Students run their conferences and are actively involved in the entire process. They create goals, review their grades with their guest, show off work they are proud of, and take accountability for incomplete assignments or other areas they may need to improve.

The teacher is a support in the conference and answers questions, clarifies data, gives positive and constructive feedback, and encourages parental involvement in the student led conference process.

Student led conferences are easy to prepare for and will change how you hold conferences in your classroom.


⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Michelle H. "This is great and very adaptable. I am so interested in student-led conferences and this is a great starting point. It provides step-by-step information on exactly how to run student-led conferences. This can even be adapted to traditional parent-teacher conferences. Thank you!"

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Marilena K. "... There are so many reasons that I am so pleased with this resource! (I have only used the Digital Portfolio, not the printable portfolio, or questionnaires). First, it is clearly made by someone who knows how to use Google Slides. It is excellent "right out of the box", but Tiffany also included so many options and it is COMPLETELY EDITABLE (plus she explained how to switch options and edit easily by going into the master view). Second, it has all the reflection questions you might need, written in student friendly language, that would be suitable for a range of grade levels, plus lots of additional suggestions (and options to add your own...did I mention that it is COMPLETELY EDITABLE?). Finally, it is a really clean, professional and timeless design. … The students filled it in easily. This is probably one of the most well designed Google Slides based products I've ever purchased...and makes me want to learn how to use Google Slides this well! ..."

⚠️ This resource is best used with Google Classroom or other LMS that allows you to distribute a file to students so they each get their own copy.

⚠️ This is NOT a ready-to-go resource. It includes Google Slides templates for you to customize. You do need to take the time to edit the templates and make them work for your classroom. (It's impossible for me to create something that works for every teacher and that you can "out of the box" immediately, which is why this resource is created as templates.)

⚠️ What you see in the images and preview is what is included in the templates, and ideas have been given on some template pages so that you can see how I ran mine in 5th grade. All content (except the page titles and clipart) on the templates is editable.

⚠️ The portfolio is in color since it is meant to be used digitally and not printed.
