  1. Sending out an email to parents letting them know what to expect for the next 6 weeks is a great idea! It can be so hard to keep in contact with parents. Thanks for sharing!

  2. I love your grade book strategy! I do something similar, but your slash-into-an-X idea is great! I’ll be back to read your updated post about this strategy!


  3. Oh man, Stephanie, I feel you on having to “shelve” the Type A from time to time!! It’s true what you said though. Sometimes it’s better to relax a bit rather than take up all of your free time getting chores done!

  4. I like your goal for 2016. I started this at the beginning of the year giving them a bi-monthly update of what we did in an email and phone message. Then the service we used started translating into French, a choice we don’t have, and not Spanish and I had to stop because the parents were confused. Now that every parent is required to provide and email I think I will go back to this in email form only.


  5. Great ideas…I especially love your idea about emailing parents. I am going to try that…maybe it will cut down on the time I spend responding to parent inquiries about what’s going on in the classroom.
