Hello my blogging friends! I have been working on my back to school to do list this morning and I thought I would share. Communication between home and school is so critical. I have found the easiest way to facilitate this communication is by using a homework folder. My students are responsible for bringing this folder to school each morning and taking it home every afternoon. The folder includes:
a pocket for homework
a pocket for notes, newsletters, flyers
an envelope for box tops, lunch money, etc.
blank lined paper for parent/teacher communication
a section with important information for parents:
my phone number
literacy and math suggestions
daily behavior report
individual behavior contracts (if needed)
This has worked so well for me and parents LOVE it. They always know where to look for homework, notes, and classroom information. No more backpack diving:

Do you use homework folders?
I would love to here what you include in your folders!!
Please leave a comment and/or follow me.
Make sure you do something today that makes you smile!
