In each students nightly folder, I like to send a brief note each day. Sometimes I send longer, meaningful notes but sometimes it is nice to check in each night with parents with this simple chart. I simply write the date and check whether the student had a great day or whether I would like for the parents to talk with the student about something that happened during the day. I usually check 'great day' and then add a smiley face or sticker. When a student has had a hard time, I circle the part of the day and add a brief comment. Parents then initial that they have read it over. This is also an awesome way to document behavior trends.
