Primary Writing- Tools to Make It FUN {Not Scary} the Whole Year Long!

I have taught in the primary grades, and I know that writing is not everyone's favorite thing to do. In fact, some students really dread it! I believe it's because they are fearful of making mistakes. I created some primary writing packs that are filled with tools that take the fear right out of writing. I bundled them up for use in Kindergarten and First Grade.

Let's start with Kindergarten, shall we?
Here are some tools that will have your primary students in Kindergarten LOVE writing...and have YOU set for the full school year!
This pack is chock full of writing options to provide differentiation. Students can choose to trace letters or work on name printing. They may feel ready to copy word lists {especially those who fear making mistakes in their writing}. Maybe your little learners need to move about the classroom, and so they choose to write-the-room. Maybe they are creative and just need a little nudge with some writing prompts or sticker pictures. And there are always those who LOVE to make books, and can use some of the stationery or book-making templates to get their stories out. Editing tools are included too!

The First Grade pack includes many of the same components, but branches out to include story builders, story starters, and poetry.

I have used them in my classroom, and know that kids find them FUN...and no longer complain about 'having to write'. And as a teacher, I am loving that the activities are spiraled, kid-friendly, and will take me through the WHOLE YEAR. Who doesn't love that!

Communicating With Parents

Communicating with the parents of your students is an essential component in building up the teacher-parent relationship. And a strong partnership will allow you to work together in the education of their children. But communicating with parents can also be a little daunting!

Many teachers utilize a variety of ways to touch base with parents. Here are just a few:
-phone calls
-emails
-parent/teacher conferences
-sending notes home
-social media
-class websites
-school websites
-Google classroom
-information nights
-classroom newsletters

I wanted to share that I have recently made some FULLY EDITABLE resources that are perfect for keeping parents informed about what is happening in your classroom!

EDITABLE CLASS INFORMATION PACK
This class information pack is perfect to send home at the beginning of the year, or to distribute on a meet-the-teacher night.
