Friday Journals--kids write a note on Friday to their parents telling what they learned that week. The parents write a short response back to their child, and the child brings the notebook back Monday. Each parent response earns a sticker for the cover. Love it--a great way to practice letter writing, and to get parents involved. Helps the children ingrain what has been taught into their memory too.

This Alphabet Interactive Notebook makes learning about letters A to Z fun by having students make a craft of each letter. They will also work on their letter writing as well as cut and paste words that start with each letter into the notebook. It's a great year round activity!
Do your students' parents tell you that they have no idea what their child is doing at school? Home Journals are a communication tool between parent and child. They are a fantastic way to practice writing to an audience and writing for a purpose. They also give parents valuable insight into what is going on inside their child's classroom. In this blog post I explain how to get started with Home Journals in your classroom.
