One way to build this relationship is through daily communication with families. This summer I decided to ditch the ragged, torn, and dirty take home folders. I am going to put together binders for each student. Binders will be more durable, organized, and provide multiple ways for daily communication.
Below are the items I used, minus the page protectors and a one inch binder.
I decided to give it a cute acronym, H.O.T. Which stands for Home Organizational Tool. These binders should last the entire year and keep my students and families organized throughout the year.
Let's look inside to see what is included!
Vertex Calendars for free calendars, the excel version is editable. You can also find cute ones through Teachers Pay Teachers. You can find this free one by The 2 Teaching Divas by clicking HERE.
I'd love to hear ways you provide communication with your families!
