Friday Journals are an amazing tool to help with parent communication and student reflection.
Each Friday, students will reflect on their learning from the week and write a friendly letter to their parents, older sibling, or other family member and parents or another family member will then write back.
--Friday Journal Cover page
--Letter to Parents written from student point of view
--2 types of writing paper with areas for both student writing and parent writing (1 primary lined, 1 regular lined)
In my class, we first spend time learning about how to write a friendly letter. Then each Friday, we brain storm ideas about what we did and learned and I write some key words on the board based on what they share.
