At back-to-school night, I would give each parent one of these slips and have them fill it out for their child. Then, I collected all the strips and used them to create a bulletin board! It was motivating to students to see how much their parents cared for them each day at school. These could be changed throughout the year such as at parent-teacher conferences, each school quarter, at the child's birthday/half-birthday, or at semester. I would also encourage parents to be creative in completing their slip by offering the use of colored pencils and pens or the opportunity to take the slip home and return it to school.
