Parents have so much important knowledge about their child. It is often overwhelming for them to know what information can best help the teacher learn about their child. They tend to focus on the things that worry them. It is equally as important that parents share the positive things such as strengths, interests, and motivation. This information gives teachers direction on ways to overcome difficulties.
This packet includes an easy to understand visual graphic for parents, an annotated worksheet for parents to fill out and a sample template letter introducing their child. This resource is a great start to opening the lines of communication between home and school. Teachers can send this information to parents and ask for it to be returned. What a great way to get parent input on their child’s strengths, learning habits and so much more!
