Printable Parent Communication Notebooks for #preschool and #kindergarten

Daily parent communication notebooks are a highly effective method for managing and organizing notes, calendars, homework and any other papers you send home. One acronym for these notebooks is B.E.A.R., or Bring Everything Always Ready. I used B.E.A.R. books in my classroom for over 10 years with great success.

Parent Communication Binder Printables for Preschool and Kindergarten

Are you tired of “Backpack Black Holes” that swallow up important papers and notes?

Have you wasted valuable time searching through your student’s backpacks for lost money or field trip permission forms?

Are the parents of your students unresponsive and uninvolved?

Implement daily parent communication notebooks in your classroom today and solve the “I can’t find it!” problem forever. The Daily Parent Communication Packet helps ensure that any homework or notes sent home are seen by parents. Many parents find it difficult to keep up with all the papers that are sent home on a daily basis; parent communication notebooks help solve this problem.

Each Daily Parent Communication Notebook Packet has everything you need to get started today. Detailed directions are included to answer all of your questions and the welcome note explains the system to parents in detail. Choose from a variety of themes to meet your needs.

The Daily Parent Communication Notebook Packet keeps parents well informed and can actually increase parent involvement if implemented properly. Because parents are provided with easily accessible information in an organized manner they are more responsive and supportive. When parents are well informed they are more likely to attend school events and activities such as open houses and conferences. They will also be more likely to respond to your requests for donations or field trip chaperones. Using a daily parent communication notebook is one way you can help your students and parents establish good habits from the very first day of school.

Christopher’s mom was single, raising two children, and working two jobs to make ends meet. I didn’t hear much from her the first half of the year but she always responded to any requests sent home for things such as field trips, donations, lunch money, class parties etc. In March Christopher announced he was going to visit his grandparents during spring break because his mom had to work. When we returned from spring break Christopher was very upset because he had forgotten his B.E.A.R. book at his grandparent’s house. Later that week a package arrived at school addressed to Christopher. Inside the box was his B.E.A.R. book that his grandparents had shipped to school for him! The look on his face was priceless; he was beaming from ear to ear. When I thanked his mom and asked her to thank her parents too she said, “They had to ship it back, neither of us can live without it!”
