Throughout this summer I am “revamping” some of my favorite classroom tools and resources, and thought I would share them along the way. My first revamp was my Weekly Reading Homework. CLICK HERE if you missed that post!!
This weekend I worked on revamping my Weekly Progress Reports, another simple, but very important resource. This is a very valuable tool in my classroom, as it’s used to communicate with parents, and to share their children’s work habits and behaviors for the week.
- First, it allows me to look back and reflect on students’ work habits and behavior from throughout the week.
- The progress report informs parents of their children’s behaviors. Parents are constantly up to date, and there are no surprises come report card time!!
- The weekly reports also reinforce positive behavior, and encourage growth for inappropriate behaviors and work habits.
