Ms. S from The Brand New Pencil is hosting a newsletter linky party so I thought I would join! I send my newsletter home on Fridays. Along with my newsletter I send home a list of spelling words, any papers I have graded, and any notes that need to go home. Below is a copy of my most recent newsletter. It doesn’t have as much information as it typically does. Click the preview for the larger version. I have read a lot about newsletters over the years. Some parents don’t read them it all. Some teachers prefer to use a lot of pictures of activities going on in the classroom. I prefer to get as much info. on there as possible to cut down on notes, phone calls, etc. I am usually more detailed with what we’re learning about next week than in this example.
When do you send home your newsletter? Weekly or monthly? What do you include? Join the linky party here!
