The Year 1-5 Student Led Conferences (SLCs) are just around the corner and will be held on Thursday March 30th from 1:00pm – 3:55pm. This special day is a celebration of learning, where students have the opportunity to share and discuss the progress they have made so far this year.
As we all know, presenting to an audience is not always easy, even when they are our parents. Here are a few tips that we would like you to consider in order to best support your child during this time.
You could say,
“I like the way that you….”
“Can you explain to me what you had to do here?”
Praise their efforts
Praise your child’s work by identifying specific skills they have been able to use.
Give your child the opportunity to explain any learning they have found challenging, and praise them for their efforts.
You could say,“This is an area you find difficult, what do you think we could do at home to help you practice this skill?”
Our students always love meeting with their parents and find it a very rewarding experience.
“I feel good about SLC’s because I could explain what I’m doing in school to my parents.” Alfie Chen Y5 (2015-16 SLC)
If you did not get the opportunity to register for SLCs, please contact your class co-teachers to sign-up. We look forward to seeing you all during SLCs!
