Tell Me About Your Child...

...in a million words or less!

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!

  5. Hi There!

    I was wondering if I could get an editable copy of this document. I plan to print front/back and would change the wording of the directions. Thank you SO much! I am excited to use this!

    1. If you'll send me an email address to share it with, I can send it to you. To keep the fonts, you'll need to download and install the Hello Literacy fonts.

  7. Hi there! I LOVE this idea. Our homework is a bit different in 2nd than it is in 4th and would love to tweak that section. I have the original downloaded from TPT, but obviously cannot edit the PDF. Is it possible to get the document to edit? Thanks so much!! LOVE it!!! skraft@huntsd.org

  9. Hi there,
    I'm trying to (urgently) print "Tell me about your child..." but Google is giving me the Error 404 message. Thing is, it worked the other day.
    Would you mind sending me a (preferably editable) copy? I'd really appreciate it.

    Thank you,
    Stacey.
