I saw this great idea on Pinterest- and just had to make one of my own. My students love it. Last week at back-to-school night, I told the parents that while they were waiting in line with their child, ask them if they know the password. If they didn't, then it lets the parents know what their child needs help with. Then, if they did know it, ask them some other questions. For example if the password is the letter K, and they know it, then ask them to say the sound or give a word that begins with that letter. Just click the picture to get your copy.
