Parent Conference and Freebie!

It has been such a busy time for me! As I mentioned before, my district uses Dibels, and I am not liking it. So, I have been super busy testing with Literacy First on top of trying to teach 23 super active kiddos!
This year I have a very low class, with only 4 of 23 ready to begin first grade curriculum, so I should see huge gains this year! I love seeing these children grow and blossom! I feel up to the challenge, but you all know it is very draining and frustrating at times. I am trying to look at the gains. I need these little guys to be more than ready for 2nd grade, I really want them to be successful!

Well, I am preparing for our first parent/teacher conference and feeling like how can I get these parents support? Let me tell you this is a big deal! I am not from this small town, and everything I do is really a new concept for most of these parents. Now, don't get me wrong, I have been blessed with some very supportive parents. I am just a people pleaser. I can't help it. I know it is not good. I say, "I don't care what so and so thinks" but I do. I am doomed for a life of disappointment, I know.
Ok, did I mention that I also ramble? It's very  annoying for some. Here is what I have came up with for my parent conference. You can get it at my TPT store!
