Are you ready to have one of your BEST Years YET?
These Home and School Ready to Use Communication Forms to keep those parent teacher communication lines open, Strong and Resonate Classroom Community in a Positive Way are ready to print and use with your students and for YOU!
There are many frames you can use for conferences to handout to parents PLUS lost of other sheets to keep communication lines
You can choose which frames you might like to use for whatever purpose. I have my students draw a self portrait each report period and self-evaluate their progress for that timeframe. Parents LOVE to see the growth in the self portrait and we always get a giggle with what their child writes when filling out the self-evaluation form. I always start my conferences off with these 2 sheets somewhat like an ice breaker to ease into the conference.
Every Friday for writing usually right after lunch, we write our Weekend News. We brainstorm ideas and then the children choose a frame and fill it in to bring home. It is somewhat like a weekly newsletter from the students. However, each child fills the frame in with their personal thoughts etc. The children have taped these in a journal and the journal goes back and forth from home and school to communicate what going on in school. Parents may write a letter back to their child if they so choose and then before we write our next journal entry we share either our own writing or our parent/guardian’s writing. Some students have chosen to write to an aunt, uncle, sister or brother. Any way you use these forms, will definitely make communication between home and School easy and fun!
