Free parent communication logs to improve family involvement and document contacts.
Discussing classroom management is coming up, but you gotta hear about this first..
You probably won’t believe that during my first year of teaching I had a police officer come to my classroom. Shocking I know. Because he was there to see me!
I know, I know, you’re asking yourself what horrible thing I did wrong. Well, it’s not like I snapped burned up all my lesson plans, but I did make a big mistake. It also had to do with fire.
If you want the full story, you’ll have to click the link above. Here’s the down and dirty version.
One of my first graders burned down a bunch of hay bales. I tried, but didn’t get in contact with the parents. Since it was my first year of teaching and I was crazzzzy busy, I kind of forgot about it. Shocking I know!
The police finally showed up in my classroom to talk to me and my principal was furious that I had let it slide.
How to improve parent communication?
Knowing I desperately needed to improve documenting contact with the parents in my classroom, I came up with some really great Parent Communication Forms. You can see an example of one of the free parent documentation forms above.
Thanks for reading!
