Parent-teacher conferences are a special opportunity for parents to learn more about their child's process. The moments spent with families should be should be informative, friendly, and fun! 

⚡️ Power up your next family event with Flipgrid! Showcase the students' work on Flipgrid, including book talks, math strategies, inquiry projects, student goals, or simply the student's proudest proud. 

Then, decide how you'll share your Flipgrid with parents. Some teachers set up iPads or Chromebooks. Others print out QR codes for each student's Response and put them up (or distribute them) in their classroom or in the hallway. Encourage parents to download the Flipgrid app, so they can leave a personalized Reply to their child with feedback on progress and inspirational messages encouraging continuous growth.
