Keep parents informed. These make perfect digital newsletters because they are full color. Staying in touch with parents will be easy with these fun and colorful crayon bordered newsletters. You can even add your own text on top of the template.
****In order to add your own text, you may need to click 'enable editing' when you open the file, which is a powerpoint ****
I love how these turned out! They are bright and fun. They are cute but not too young looking. They have a border of pencils, but no other clip art images, which gives it a neat and stream lined look. This pack of newsletters has the same size boxes on each one (where you type your weekly or monthly information), but there is a different colored background for each month.
Please hover over the thumbnail samples and view the preview above to see what they look like. You will want to make sure the text box sizes and position will work for you.
YOU CAN NOT CHANGE the size of the white sections on the class newsletter templates. The background image itself is not editable, but you can add text boxes onto the white sections. You can also add text, use different fonts, and insert images over the top, but you CAN NOT change the basic format.
There are 2 different formats for each month. Click the preview to get a better idea of what that means :-)
**One with predetermined headings on the sections. If you choose to use the prelabeled sections, they say "Upcoming Events", "What we are learning", "more learning", and "Reminders", and "Extra... Extra... Read all about it".
**One format with no headings. You can add your own to the boxes I have placed on the template.
The newsletters are in power point
with the template pictures embedded as the background image. You will simply open the power point and enable editing. You will insert text boxes and choose your fonts. You will type onto it like you would any other power point. If you are not sure how to do this, CLICK HERE to read a blog post I wrote detailing the steps.
Each classroom newsletter template says "NEWSLETTER" and "from the desk of". There is also a section that says 'week of' and a place for your email. The month is also listed at the top of each one.
