Let your students use the front office phone to call their parents during the day! Great way to motivate students in class through positive reinforcement. I use a positive chart system in class made of 5 colors. If they reach the top of the chart that day they can fill one of these notes out and go call home. Moms and Dads love to hear positive news throughout their day. I would have parents email me all the time telling me thank you for letting their child call home. It made their day!
