I like to send a newsletter home each week with my students. I include a little information about how parents can help their children learn how to read and how they can help their children with math. In this week's edition I have a write up about listening comprehension. I want parents to know how important and influential they are in their child's success at school. On the back of the newsletter I have a coupon that parents can sign and return to let me know they read the newsletter. When the kindergartners return the coupon I let them move their clip up on the class behavior chart. Being reliable in taking things home and returning the things I need back is definitely a behavior I want to reinforce.
You can follow the link below to read this week's newsletter.
Thanks for reading. I hope you have a great week doing wonderful things for your students.
