This tip works with all grade levels. I send home a Weekly Folder with a Weekly Progress Report for each student. The folder goes home on Mondays and the parent receives a report about the child's behavior, homework, classwork, and all tests are returned from the previous week. The parents sign and return the folder and if they have questions or concerns, they address them to me on the report. This method eliminates confusion that parents may have about their child's progress. It also lets them know that I care enough to take time on a weekly basis to communicate with them. My students love it and so do their parents!
