Parent Connection Newsletter ~ Issue #3

Issue #3

Are you interesting in sending a monthly newsletter to your parents? This one focuses on reading and writing and includes tips, resources, activities, and ways to get the reluctant reader reading. Parent Connection Newsletter ~ Issue #3

Creating Storybooks

This month one of the major units we are covering in class is writing narratives. I decided to encourage writing at home by listing websites where students can create storybooks. It is a great time of the year to have students create books as they make wonderful Christmas gifts for grandparents. The link to the resource page above is an images, so you can’t click to see the websites I found; however, by clicking on Issue #3 below you can download the pdf file. On this file the link is clickable.


I’ve decided to post these newsletters here each month for teachers would would like to send them home to their students. You can download a pdf version of the newsletter by clicking:

    I can’t seem to get the link in the newsletters to work. Is it not active anymore? If it isn’t, would you be willing to share an editable version of these newsletters so that I can take that part out.

    1. Gay Miller

      I just checked. The links at the bottom of the post all work.
