Parent communication is very important, especially in special education where our students can't necessarily tell their parents what they did during the school day In order to efficiently communicate with parents and guardians in my classroom, I use a few simple forms.
Notes Home - two days per 1 sheet, quick information about the day with a spot for parents to reply.
Weekly Notes Home - whole week on one page. I have used this documents for children with aggressive behaviors when their parents want to know how much aggression there was per day (time permitting).
Service Provider Notes home - A quick summary of the month for service providers to use.
Phone Log - Documentation of all phone calls made and the follow-up necessary for them.
