I sent these newsletters home every week with my pre-k students. Their suggested homework was written and attached to the sheet and it had classroom news on the backside.
These can be edited to fit your classroom needs.
I used the back for reminders, curriculum learned that week, monthly themes, birthdays, concept words, and sight words.
These newsletters can be edited to fit any grade level. They are also a great tool for parents communication. I would write notes to parents on the newsletters.
This is a zip file and has each week of the school year in the file. The newsletters are decorated with clip art to match a season or holiday. They will last you the whole school year!
