Family Communication


Do you have a weekly newsletter?  A monthly newsletter?  How do you communicate with your families?  I thought I would share how I keep in touch with my families and let them know what is going on in our classroom.  Every Monday I send home a weekly skills sheet that gives a brief explanation of all the skills or activities we will cover for the week.  This year I have a beach theme, so it is called, "Second Grade Seaside Skills."  Here is a peek of my skills sheet for this week.


Now here is a peek of some of my monthly newsletters, "Bryant's Beach Hut News."


I LOVE Scrappin Doodles.  If you like the newsletter headers just head on over to www.scrappindoodles.com and snatch them up!  Enjoy your week!  Can't even believe it is almost February!!!

  4. I love your newsletter! I wish I could do something like that, but I only teach Reading/Writing. I wouldn't want to stress my partner out with having to do something weekly. We do send home a monthly newsletter with units and lessons covered. I don't even know if our 4th grade parents read it! Maybe I need to make it cuter!? I love scrapindoodles! :)

  6. I think I saw Wonders on your student desks during your classroom tour. We are starting Wonders this fall. Are the Seaside Skills pages used with Wonders? I may have to copy your format!

    Thanks!
