Celebrating a Year of Growth {Student Led Conferences}

A couple of years ago we started something we call Learning Celebrations in our classrooms...think student led conferencing.  We hold the Learning Celebrations in our classroom at the end of the school year and invite parents to come in to take a look at all the great work we've done ALL YEAR! Parents and students alike get a great deal out of this event; the students work on their speaking, presenting, and sharing skills and the parents get to sit back and enjoy seeing how much growth their kiddo has made in one year's time.  It's win-win.  We can't imagine end of year conferences any other way now!
