5+ Helpful Parenting Charts from Thirty Handmade Days
Over the last year or so I’ve shared lots of ideas for parenting guidelines. As I’ve said lots before, these are just guidelines. You have to do what’s best for you and your family, but the information I share is meant to be helpful. Parenting can be tough! It’s the best, hardest job there is. I’ve gathered a lot of info and wanted one spot that I could put it all together.

Time for Report Cards! from Inspire Me
Before I pass out their report cards I have the students fill out this self-reflection… After the students fill out their self-reflection, I call them to the guided reading table to have a mini-conference. I call about 5-6 students at a time and give them the opportunity open the report card envelope, review their grades, and most importantly, ask any questions. We then discuss how I assessed their “characteristics that affect learning” and compare it with their own self-reflection. The students and I then talk about what can be done to improve and make a realistic goal for next quarter.

Life Skills posters from The Resourceful Room
I am so excited about these. We have an awards assembly once a month at our school at one child from each classroom is recognized for demonstrating the “life skill of the month” I created these to help introduce the skill and hopefully give students a reminder of what we are working on each month. I am going to display them just like my birthday display! The life skill of the month sign will go on the wall and the other cards will go on rings right below so it can be easily flipped each month and won’t take up a lot of room!

Life in the Real World – Teaching Life Skills to Kids from The Sunny Patch

Teaching Children How to Fill Out Forms from Five J’s
…Forms and applications require names, birth dates, and addresses to be written in dozens of different ways. You can prepare your children for this real-world skill by introducing them to a variety of forms and actually having actually practice filling them out. I did this with my kids this last school year, and not only did they have a lot of fun doing it, but they really learned a lot!…

Personal Hygiene from Empowered by Them
I am trying to get some cover sheets on some of the curriculum I have sitting here. This has been a slow process. I just starting using Power Point a little over a week ago, and so far so good. The folks on TpT have been great answering my questions and helping me out. Tutorials are great!!! Will post more as I make them.

I would love to hear how they liked it.
