Need talking points for Ice Cream Social

Does anyone have suggestions for talking points I can have ready when I meet the parents? I have a bit of a social phobia. I hate it when I run out of things to say and then we're just standing there awkwardly.
Thanks!!

How was your summer? (of course )
Tell me about ____ (insert child's name)
How will student get home?
What teacher did student have last year?
To ask student: What's the best book you read over the summer?

Highlight a favorite upcoming project/activity for the year.
Explain procedures for contacting you, homework, or anything else.

Parents will probably be eager to get in and out, so don't worry too much!

Depending on your population, mention areas in and around the community that have learning experiences. For example, a not-so-well known museum or park and the type of information they can learn from the area. It creates something that can be a common bond between you and the family. If they saw it, you can talk about it in more depth, if not, you can talk about why it is important or fun.

We have a great pond area and knowing what you can see when is a great to talk about. In the April/May time frame you can see fish digging their holes to lay their eggs and protect their nests, tadpoles for small frogs and bull frogs, larva that eventually turn into dragon flies. There is also a great building that used to be an old school.

This takes some work on your part to know the surrounding community(ies), but it can help you for years to come.
