Parent Contact

I find it is becoming more and more critical to keep records of when you have contact with parents.  I made a form that I keep by my phone.  I fill it in every time I have a call a parent. If a parent stops in to talk to me I also make a note of it and just mark that the contact was in person and what the conversation was about. It is a good way to cover yourself if a parent says they had no idea their child was having a problem.

Story Wands

What better way to get children excited about reading than with story wands that kids will love to use! The wands feature simple questions that explore plot, character, setting and more. Just pass them out at reading time to get kids thinking about story elements and building comprehension skills as they go! Cut out the stars, laminate and attach to paint sticks. Download here.
