Are you looking for a quick way to establish a positive relationship with your students? Are you looking for a way to learn more about your students and their home life? Then look no further than Weekend News. Either print a recording sheet or bind a book to place on your students' desks each Monday morning. Ask the students to write about their weekend as their morning work/entry task. Then, if you wish, have the students share their news with the class or respond to the students privately by leaving them a sweet message in their book or on the back of their page. This is a quick and simply way to build a rapport with your students.
