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! (:
Weekly Progress Report. A nice way to improve parent-school communication - the parents initial the page each week and return it. Add to student file to discuss at report card conference time. Looks like it would be a quick and easy checklist to complete each week. Concerned about the paper not being returned each week? My students have a communication duo-tang that goes from home to school each day, so I will attach the progress report in there to keep it from getting lost!
Wish I had thought of this...Duh! Procedures Power Point for beginning / start of year - This keeps the teacher on track when going over all the procedures with the kiddos! You don’t have to do them all in one day, it’s just a solid guide. Get it FREE from this blog!
Teacher Organization Binder -- to keep schedules, class lists, student contact info, conference times, assessment scores, curriculum and testing calendars, grading requirements/spreadsheet with grades, lesson plan ideas, team meeting notes, faculty/site-based meeting notes, PLC meeting notes, and an ez-grader in the back pocket......Great idea for our archives with the new Coach eval system
