Report Card Comments
We are just nearing the end of 3rd quarter which means two things. Number one: we are even THAT much closer to summer break. Number two: I have to write report card comments. BOOOOO!!!
I always have the hardest time writing them! I like to give myself a good couple of weeks to think about them and make sure they’re precise and accurate.
And then there’s the difficulty with saying harsh things in a nice way. Like, how do I tell little Billy’s parents that he just won’t shut up!!! It usually takes a while but sounds something like this: I'm glad Billy is eager to participate in class discussions, but he needs to raise his hand when he has something to say.
Luckily, I’m not on my own here. I have a few “go to” websites to help me when my wording isn’t very kind. Check them out here:
