Teacher Jani and her co-teacher meet to discuss their "game plan" for David at the teacher-parent conference next week. They each collect data they have on David and create a meeting agenda with the information they want to share with David's parents.
Good afternoon, welcome to the teacher-parent conference.
Welcome and thank you for meeting with us Mrs. Wang. We have really enjoyed getting to know David this year.
Absolutely, David is such a kind and gentle boy. He listens and follow directions well and this makes him a great role model for his peers. Compared to the beginning of the year, he has made great progress in most areas, so we are very happy about his improvement.
Looking at his academic progress this semester, David shows special strengths in the area of social studies/science and has done very well in this area. Here is an example of a prosocial studies project he completed recently.
1.It is amazing to hear such good reports about David.I cans see hat he is happy at school, and that make me very happy, too.
Yes, he did very well in this project. However, one area we would like David to focus on moving forward is reading.
As you know, we recently sent home the final report cards for this semester. You probably have noticed that David’s comprehension has greatly improved, but he still needs extra work in reading.
Yes, I have noticed that he needs more practice in reading. I would highly appreciate a plan to help him at home too.
We have a reading plan that we believe David would benefit from but we need your help at him to make sure that he is following the plan and doing what the plan requires.
I think it is just right for David. I would do my best at home to help him improve his reading skills. Thank you very much for your help and support at school.
So, David's will require to do the following:At school, teacher will ensure that LLI (small group reading) is provided 3 times a week and follow up with parents to provide feedback. At home, parents ensure that David reads for at least 20 to 30 minutes and follow up three times a week by asking him leveled comprehension questions.
