⚠️ 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.


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.


  • I am not familiar with other learning management systems. If you can use Google Drive files with your LMS, you should be able to use this without issue. Though I'm not entirely sure how you would edit the personalized student data after distributing the portfolio, and you may have to share the data portion separately.
  • I also have editable Student Led Conference Forms that are meant to be printed but can be used digitally. They come with both a PowerPoint and Google Slides format for editing with your software of choice.


  • PDF: This resource requires Adobe Reader (free software).
  • Google Slides + Google Forms: To access the Google files, you need to have a (free) Google account. The included PDF contains a link to access the digital resource.
