Course Information and Outline - known to some as a syllabus. Written for science but editable for any subject.
Visual Syllabus - short, graphic version of Course Outline
Science Safety and Learning Contract - it’s handy to ask parents to sign that they have read and agree to certain classroom policies and procedures. Signing more than one time will prompt parents to actually look at what they are signing. Double-side this with Student Information Sheet.
Student Information Sheet - I love to learn about my students. I don’t require parents to fill this out completely. It’s a non-threatening way for parents to share things they may want you to know about their child. Doubld-side this with Science Safety and Learning Contract.
Creation and Maintenance of the Science Notebook - Suggestions for setting up a notebook, I started this system in about 1996 and have modified it many times. Editable, so you can make it yours.
