This cute, editable newsletter template is a wonderful tool to help you connect with your students’ families! Because you will be following a simple, bulleted list format to write about the bulk of the goings-on in your classroom, you will be saving yourself a lot of time. Additionally, this format keeps your newsletter simple, which greatly increases the likelihood that families will read it. Most importantly, the “Ask Me About” section of the newsletter helps to create meaningful conversations about school within families. The bottom line is: you no longer have to spend hours writing up a fancy newsletter for your families! This should take you no longer than 5 minutes to complete each week, from start to finish.
You can decide on topics to include in the newsletter on your own or you can involve your students in the process. This brainstorming session can easily be done in only a minute, and it would be a great do-now question or activity to do while waiting for students to be dismissed at the end of the day.
I recommend sending this newsletter home once per week on Fridays, but you can also send it home bi-weekly or even monthly. If you involve your class in generating content for the newsletter, you can easily ask them on Thursday afternoons.
