MOST USED PHRASES DURING PARENT-TEACHER CONFERENCES

Disclaimer: Little Lucas is not a real student, just a name I chose to commemorate my first year of teaching without a Lucas in my class.
  1. "We're working with Little Lucas on expressing himself with words."
    You know, instead of screaming, hitting, grabbing, biting, etc.
  2. "We are working with Little Lucas on communicating his needs to the teachers."
    Saying "I have to poop!" so we can take him to the bathroom before we discover the poop in his underpants.
  3. "We are working with Little Lucas on participating in large group activities."
    Sitting with the group during circle time, instead of rolling around in the middle of the rug or across the room decorating his body with stamps or markers.
  4. Yep, that's about it.
