Happy Saturday and a Freebie!

Do you send family projects home for your students and their families to complete? Students love sharing what they are doing in their classroom, and sometimes it is hard for them to remember when they get home.  I like to send books home that we have created together as a class.  Students can share their picture and their classmates pictures and talk about the activity with their parents.  I also like to send home books that we read in the classroom with an activity or two.   My students really enjoyed this book,

and they love to make lists, so I created a packet that they could take home and share with their parents.
         
You can get it for free at my store.  I hope you and your students enjoy it!

How do I package this and send it home?  I place my papers in a folder; putting the directions and sign out sheet in the middle and the handouts in a pocket.  
 I then place the folder and the book in a bag. 
 The bags are labeled with a number so I can recycle and use for a different book next month.  I have a pocket chart with my kinders pictures and the correlating number beside their picture.  What do you do in your classroom to create a positive relationship with parents?
