One important tool that I will be implemented this year is the Take-Home Folder. I have had folders similar to this in the past but not exactly like this one. This will be such a great way for us to communicate back and forth and a way to see how your student is doing each day.
First off, let me explain my behavior chart just incase you need a refresher. Every day all the students will start off on green "Happy Camper". Throughout the day as their behavior changes I will have them move their clip up or down the chart.
At the end of each day I will mark the calendar inside their Take-Home Folder. All that I ask is that you or someone at home (an aunt, uncle, grandparent, older sibling etc.) look at the calendar and initial it. This will be counted as a part of their homework and tracked in my classroom each morning so please make sure that your student brings it back to school each day.
Parent/Teacher communication is so important to me. I want us to be a team this year in helping your child learn. It's going to be an awesome year!!
