Are you looking for a parent communication system that will allow you to send home concrete information about your students without taking you away from teaching them? Then these positive notes home to parents are just what you are looking for to improve your parent communication (special education students)! 

Whether you send a daily note home by printing or email or a weekly note, these notes are quick and easy to complete throughout the day about each activity that your students complete. And you can tailor them to have the options within the activities that you need. Setting up a daily parent communication log is exactly what you need to set your students up for success in and out of the classroom. 

What’s included in this parent communication for special education students product:

  • 10 Paper-and-Pencil illustrated Notes From School
  • The same 10 notes above with editable check items
  • A structured note to send home for What I Did at Home (also in an editable version)

These daily parent communication notes are PERFECT for elementary special education classrooms. If you teach other age groups, check out the parent communication resources here: Home Notes

❤️ Your students and parents will LOVE this form of parent communication for special education students because each activity form has a symbol for that activity that can be used as a cue to help students talk about their day.  This can help students learn to communicate with family about what happened during their day.  The symbols correspond to the visuals in my classroom visual schedules.

Daily parent communication note features:

✅Paper and pencil notes

✅Home Notes in PDF to be completed by computer (and can be emailed)

✅PowerPoint versions that you can add items to (headings and boxes cannot be changed)

✅A weekly note

✅Positive notes home to parents to increase engagement 

✅A note for parents to complete and send back

✅Pictures on the notes to assist students to communicate. The pictures correspond to my classroom visual bundles.

These home notes are a great way to send positive, concrete information home for students in special education. Gather objective information about student performance in different activities throughout the day from staff through the check-off sheets. Then review the forms and add comments and positive notes to the parents.  Parents will also love being able to use the symbols to help their children communicate about what they did that day.

Sending positive notes home to parents will help families know what types of questions to ask about the child's day and what information to prompt their child to give in response. There is a weekly note option if parents don't want a note every day. Plus, there is a note for families to send back with information to send back to the school about what they did at home. 

What teachers are saying…

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ “This is a great resource for daily communication with parents, and also helps students reflect on their own behavior throughout the school day. Loved it!” - Violeta E.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ “Parents noted that they loved knowing about everything that went on during a student's day. Students are able to point to pictures and share more details with parents, and printing these double sided means parents can keep lines of communication open each day.” - The BA TeacherMamma

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ “Love this resource. It is clear and concise and has helped me cut down on the time I spend on daily notes, while still including all the important information for families/caregivers.” - Abby V.
