Fall Conferences

I tried something new for conferences this year.  I had conferences two nights this year and the first night I was amazed at the endless amount of students and parents that came to visit me.  It was wonderful.  I felt bad for the lines however.  The second night I made a table in the hallway for siblings and waiting families.  I had my 8th grade place scribbles on the table and fill a couple spaces up with zentangels.  I left a short explanation of what zentangles are as well as a couple of step by step packets on the table top as well.  There was an array of colored pencils for participants to use.  It was fun to see the art the families made.  I saw it used through out the night.
