It's time to get rid of the mundane folders full of paperwork and give parents a classroom handbook they will actually use! Give parents something they want to take home during Open House, Back to School Night, or Meet the Teacher. Include double the classroom information in half the size. This editable dual tab flip book is just what the teacher ordered! Add a magnet to the back so parents can keep it on their fridge, a place they will see it daily!
I really liked these word work activities. They are suggested for upper elementary grade literacy centers. I think if we make these available to students then we as teachers could encourage writing skills in a fun and engaging way.
