Building family engagement in the classroom needs to start on the first day of school or before. A great way to get the ball rolling is to schedule a parent orientation before school start or on the very first day of school.
During the orientation take a survey of what family are interested in and tap into those interest. Parents feel more comfortable as a classroom participant then just a classroom observer.
Are you looking for ways that are quick, easy and stress free to communicate with your families? Then this is the packet for you. This pack includes an editable newsletter for each month in two different formats. Just click and type it is as simple as that.
Newsletters are a great way to build family involvement and support by keeping them informed to what is happening in the classroom.
Now included on the Communication Folder CD as a bonus. You can also find this packet on Teachers Pay Teachers and Teachers Notebook.
Last year I created Communication Folders for each month to help keep my families informed and involved in the day to day happenings of the classroom.
I have to say that they were a hit! The support and involvement of my families was nothing but amazing.
Now with that being said I really need to figure out how to organize all of that information. As it stands now I have stacks of papers on the teacher workstation, NOT WORKING!!
So I created a Monthly Communication Folder Binder.
