Parent Communication Log- Don't really need one this elementary, but my goal this year is to contact every parent at least once per semester... especially for the students who are doing great or are showing improvement! (:

GREAT resource aligning with Common Core 8 Math Practices. This document refers to what mathematicians do: talk about math, explain their thinking, make predictions, work together, compare, make mistakes, record thinking, change their ideas, check their work and look for challenges!
