Homework can be one of the most difficult parts of the day for students and parents when there is not enough communication. Teachers need to keep parents informed and find a way to effectively communicate about assignments that are to be completed at home.
This resource is our Homework Parent Communication Toolkit! Use all of it or parts of it! The beauty of this toolkit is that it has editable pieces and it is easy to start using right away! Homework Parent Communication has never been so easy!
★Homework Letter: Explain what homework is and why it is important. This is a great letter to give to parents at the beginning of the school year. Get buy-in from the start! EDITABLE!
★Homework Communication Letter: Let parents know all of the ways that you will be communicating with them over the course of the year. This is also a great paper to give to parents at the beginning of the school year. EDITABLE!
★Homework Routines At A Glance: This is the perfect place to put everything in one place. We tell our parents to stick it on the fridge for a quick reference. Sample Included. EDITABLE!
★Agenda: Students list daily assignments on a template that parents are able to see. Parents sign daily. EDITABLE!
★Assignment Explanation: Explain directions, due dates or other important information to take the guesswork out of homework! EDITABLE!
★Homework Communication Slips: Have parents ever had questions or comments and not had a place to write them? Give them a sheet of paper with ¼ page slips and tell them to attach it to the assignment they are struggling with! This makes it easy for parents to communicate with you!
★Weekly Homework Completion Slips: Send these home weekly (probably on a Friday). If students do all of their work for the week, give them the “Wooo-Hooo” slip. If they did not complete all of their assignments, give them the “Warning” slip.
★Homework Completion Reports: Send these home periodically telling parents how many weeks their child has completed homework. These could be given every month or every trimester.
★“Yours to Keep and “Please Sign and Return” Slips: Attach these to assignments to let parents know what to do.
★Reminder Slips: Send home reminders about upcoming due dates. There are 2 options. EDITABLE!
★Assignment Tags: Have you ever looked at a homework assignment and been impressed? Let parents know! They deserve recognition too! Attach the tag to the assignment when you send it back home! There are 4 options to choose from.
