I realize you are all busily working on your fall assessments and preparing what you will say and share at conferences with parents. So I’m dedicating this edition of “The Scoop” to the topic of parent-teacher communication.
Establishing good rapport with parents is extremely important in the preschool years because is a tender and sensitive season. They crave information, stories, and snippets that show a teacher notices, cares about and values their child. They want our encouragement and our insight.
Effective communication, both written and verbal, is a valuable skill for a teacher to have. I’ve shared a few top tips in “The Flavor of the Month” as well a hilarious take on the subject in “Rainbow Sprinkles.”
I hope these resources will be helpful and heart-warming for you.
As we approach Fun Fair and Thanksgiving, know how thankful I am to work with each of you. You are an amazing group of women who love the Lord, love young children, and love to laugh. I am thankful that we are a school family!
