This is a concise one-page newsletter that you can use to keep your class parents informed about school every week. This compressed file contains 33 separate items: 11 completely editable Word documents, 11 fillable PDF forms, and 11 empty PDF forms. The basic version of the newsletter is an attractive and organized way to keep families up-to-date, and the themed versions have been enhanced with graphics relevant to that month’s themes. The themed newsletters also come pre-filled with a fun fact about the theme.
Some details on the files:
-No elements in the Word documents are locked, so you are free to delete, add, move, change colors and fonts, or type as you please. The fonts are embedded in the file so the appearance should not change on your computer. These files were created in Word 10.
-In the fillable PDF forms, all elements are locked except for the contents of the text boxes. You simply need to select the text present in the boxes and begin typing. Voila, you have a newsletter!
-In the empty PDF forms, everything is static. Simply open the file and print it out, and you have a form that you can complete by hand, or have the students complete by hand, giving them ownership over their learning goals and allowing them to contribute to the classroom communication!
You will find themes for the months of September and October in this package, as well as the basic newsletter that has no theme. Each week has its own theme, and I have included extra newsletters for “ Talk Like A Pirate Day ” and Halloween.
