Too often the communication that teachers have with parents and carers at home is either just administrative ("Please return this note with $2.50 for the trip to the Zoo next Wednesday") or it is to discuss a negative ("Little Mary hasn't handed in her homework for the last month").
However, it is also great to send home notes to share the positive things that have been going on the classroom. Kids love it because they get praise at school when you hand out one of these notes, then they can take it home, pin it on the fridge and get lots of positive reinforcement at home too.
This download contains an A4 page with two notes on it. There is a blank space for you to write the date, the child's name, the class or subject and then a list of traits that are great to encourage in every classroom, regardless of age. There is even a blank line for you to write your own specific positive if you'd like.
