Attach this packet to the front and back of a folder or envelope and send it back and forth between home and school every month. This process will simplify your writing conferences and planning as well as involve students and parents in writing progress and goal setting throughout the year.
This is all you need for progress monitoring and writing conferences. When you meet with students you have the packet handy and work towards the goals on the packet. You and the student will easily see which writing skills have been mastered and which ones need practice.
Students will be highly motivated to fill out the entire sheet by June so you will see them focused and motivated to make gains in writing.
Parents love the communication back and forth approximately once per month. I have had nothing but positive feedback from parents over the past three years with this system.
This set includes:
-Family communication page (parents sign off that they read the packet of writing pieces and filled out the checklist)
-Writing Checklist for teacher, student, and parent to share
-Sample Family Communication Packet
- Clip art for labels so you can have coordinating labels
- Cover files for your notebook, binder, or folder
