Classroom newsletters are always appreciated by parents. How about relinquishing that task to your blossoming writers!
At the start of every week, give each child a newsletter. Set aside time at the end of each day for students to record the date, draw a weather picture, write about something they learned or are studying, and a picture of a favorite event.
There is always a space for reminder dates (PTA, etc.) and notes from you. “Don’t forget to wear red on Wednesday!
12 Newsletters in all….one appropriate for each month!
