Each week I send home two very important pieces of communication. On Monday, my students receive their homework sheet. It lists their homework for the week, as well as their sight and spelling words. It also acts a reminder for parents of important dates and our specials schedule. Students are expected to complete their homework nightly and return it each day. Spelling activities are completed nightly as well, and recorded on the back of the homework sheet. Students turn in their homework sheet on Friday.
The second item sent home is my newsletter, which is sent home on Friday. I keep my newsletter short and sweet. It includes important dates, reminders, and what we learned during the week, as well as what learning will take place in the future. I find keeping the newsletter easy to read, ensures that parents will take the time to look it over and stay current.

BTW- Can you tell I’m obsessed with fonts? I change them constantly along with graphics.
I’m such a dork!
