Last August at Meet Your Teacher night, I gave all of my parents or guardians an envelope and a piece of paper with the words "Tell Me About Your Child...in a Million Words or Less!" I then had them take the paper home, write as much as they wanted about their child, and return it to school in the envelope for me to read. This could include important facts or information the parents thought important for me to know.
Most of my parents told me so much about their child that I probably wouldn't have known until much later in the school year, but a few only gave me the basics. Because of this I wanted to add a little more structure, but also allow parents the chance to brag on their child as much as they wanted!
So, as I've been checking out Pinterest for awesome beginning of the year stuff, I've noticed a super cute getting to know your students paper for parents to fill out. I took this idea and combined it with what I did last school year to create the new and updated Tell Me About Your Child in a Million Words or Less!
