September Staff/Parent Newsletter

Does your school have parent feedback goals and whole school learning indicators?  We have done this for a few years and each year I strive to communicate in new and exciting ways.  This school year I have decided to provide teachers and parents (of my students) with a monthly email newsletter outlining various strategies and resources to increase communication skills.  For my September email newsletter, I compiled a list of suggested activities parents and teachers can utilize with their child(ren) or students. I generated two separate emails, one for parents and one for teachers, each just slightly modified to adjust to recipients.  Included in both (parent and teacher) were suggested books for the month of September, YouTube "Born Learning PSA - The supermarket, and strategies for articulation.  My goal is to get the word out about how important reading is for a number of reasons, including improving focus and attention, imagination, and increasing vocabulary. I have also just discovered these great YouTube videos "Born Learning PSA" and I LOVE them. It demonstrates the importance of narrating to your child ALL the time as they are learning so much from listening to what you are doing.  What are you all doing for your school goals?  I hope this helped you a little bit.  I will be back next month to share my November newsletter suggestions.  Have a great school year!
