Guess Who? Freebie!

What a wild, wild week....

So what do you think of this conference schedule?

Monday - Halloween {need I say more?}
Tuesday - teach all day - conferences 4:30-7:30
Wednesday - teach all day {pull my hair out}
Thursday - teach all day - conferences 4:30-7:30
Friday - 1/2 day with kids - conferences 12:30-3:30

Does that seem like a funky conference schedule?  What's yours like?

On a brighter note - my conferences went really well tonight. I had some toughies but the parents were all super responsive.  Phew!

Each year we have our awesomely talented parapro trace the silhouettes {can I tell you how many times I tried spelling that word?  Still doesn't look right and I googled it...oy} of each first grader.  Then we have them write "clues" and attach.  As the parents wait for their conference they do a "First Grade Who's Who".  The parents love it and it's a wonderful keepsake. 

My phone doesn't do them justice -you should see the details - she actually uses a razor blade to get the details of the eyelashes, tufts of hair...just amazing. 




Here's a copy of the clues:


Hoping to make it through this week without developing a twitch...I feel one coming on.  Must be time for a bubble bath...

  1. Those silhouettes are amazing! You are so lucky to have someone that will take the time to cut all those details out.
