I am in the midst of writing reports for parents. They are each a narrative "covering" four areas of their child's year: personal and social development; language and literacy; mathematical thinking; and learning through inquiry.

We did these once before, in December. I know my students, and I can write to each of these subjects. This is the first school I have worked at that has reports, and this is not how I would choose to share information with parents.

How do you share information with parents? Conferences? Reports? Portfolio sharing?


p.s. These last few weeks will be quite hectic, so I apologize for the inevitable lapses in writing. Perhaps you'll just see lots of photographs!
