Student Interest Survey - Primary Years

A student interest survey for the primary years.

We all know that student interest and instruction are closely linked – even in the primary years! The more interested a student is in the content, the more engaged they will be in the learning, and the easier it will be for them to connect to new ideas. Therefore, taking time during the initial getting-to-know-you period at the beginning of the school year is crucial.

Use this simple student interest survey with your students during the first week of school to:

  • establish and maintain a positive relationship with your students.
  • mold your instruction to meet the individual needs and preferences of each of your students throughout the school year. This will really motivate those hard-to-reach students.

Once the surveys are complete, file them away in your student files to be able to refer back to throughout the year.

Use the drop-down menu to choose between the color or black and white PDF version, or choose the Interactive Assess template that will allow students working remotely to access the information and answer all online.
