Hi, Ms. W, thank you so much for coming in to discuss Amy's progress today.
We really enjoy having Amy in our class. She's exceptionally kind and helpful to other students in the class.
Amy often contributes thoughtful questions and comments to our class discussions - she helped us record our understanding of fractions last week.
Because Amy shows strong understanding during class discussion, I'd like to encourage her to share her understanding in her written work.
Most of the work I see from Amy seems to have been done in a hurry, and her test scores suffer because of it. She's starting to tell me that she is "just not good at Math" or Science or whichever subject we took a test in.
I don't believe Amy's performance reflects her true ability. I want to help Amy improve her performance and self-confidence.
Can you help me understand how Amy feels about school? Or any other information that might help her?
I'd like to have us work with Amy to make a plan to help her succeed in written work in the future.
