We live in a world of constant communication - visual, verbal, in words, in actions - and we are missing an important opportunity within the classroom - helping students learn HOW to share information from their day with their families. It is our desire to form a bridge between school and the outside world - what better way to build stepping stones than to acknowledge the importance of quality information sharing. This information could be through a daily reflection - it could be typed, written, drawn - acting almost as a journal, but also as a space where it is understood that this is a place for sharing something that was pivotal, confusing, exciting, or frustrating, the list goes on. It could be shared through a digital platform or through paper.
Build the bridge between students and their families, to help better build the bridge between teacher and families.
