As summer draws near, we know how the kids can get- restless, lazy, and cranky! To try to combat that a little bit, I've created a one page letter to send home asking parents what they would like to see from their child by the end of the year, in roughly 2 months' time. (Having students focus on only 1 goal) Hopefully this will appease parents by asking what they would like to see improvement in before the long break, and will drive students to accomplish this goal.
Another reason why this is a great time to do it is because most of us just had our parent conferences, so parents are refreshed with what their child is succeeding in and what they need extra practice with.
I'm thinking about hanging these goals up so students can be reminded of them when they're getting a little out of hand. I've never tried this before, but I have high hopes! Have any of you done anything similar? Did you get a good response from parents and children?
This letter is in both English and Spanish, and is a free download at my Teachers Pay Teachers store. It's a Word document, so it's easily customizable if you would like to alter some of the goals/verbiage.
I am new at creating products and am hoping to expand my store, so any feedback is very welcome. I'm currently working on a kindness project to put up, so be on the look out!
If you download this letter, let me know what you think! How was your experience?
