I believe the home-school connection can be a positive tool for any teacher. By using positive communication home, parents get to hear the highlights of their student, which helps when you have to make a negative communication. It can be empowering to students to hear the positive communication to parents. Who doesn't like to hear good things expressed about themselves??
In my classroom, students can earn positive communication home. With the use of this board, it makes it easy for students to select which method they prefer for home communication.
