Next year I plan to send home an information newsletter each Monday. I really want to have a closer relationship with the parents, and I am hoping that this will help. I had a student last year, who's mother told me, that everyday when she would ask him what he did at school he replied "nothing"!!! I am hoping by informing the parents on what we are working on daily/weekly, I can prevent this from happening.Here is an example layout I think I might use. I found this at a website earlier and as soon as I remember where I found it I can give credit due. I had to change some of her sections because my students don't have spelling lists.
