I've heard from a lot of blogger friends that a great way to see if your parents read your weekly newsletter is to put something for them to do inside the newsletter. Well, I tried that on Monday. HIGHLY disappointed today! I wrote that if they drew buttons on the snowman then their students would receive a prize the next day. I had 1 student bring their newsletter back with buttons on his snowman. He told me that he read the newsletter and did it. So, that means that not a SINGLE parent in my classroom reads my newsletter. Any suggestions or tips that y'all have? It was kinda sad. I gave this student his prize and told the rest of my class to make sure that their parents read the newsletter or they read the newsletter to their parents (I have several Hispanic families in my classroom). So, friends if you have any helpful tips please let me know.
Other news...I uploaded a Valentine's Day Packet. I love adding holiday stuff to my reading centers. My kiddos get so excited! Here's a preview of what's included.
