I want to really work on making my classroom transparent and giving parents the opportunity to access all class materials and easily contact me. At open house this year I handed out contact cards to parents. (I designed them using TechSmith's Snagit, which I LOVE! It is a great tool. Check it out if you haven't used it. There is a free trial. I had the cards printed at Vista Print.) I also gave one to each student on the first day of school!
On my website, parents can find class calendars, the course syllabus, instructions to download the Google class calendar, directions to sign up for Remind101 texts, and links to grades and assignments. I made cards that look like my webpage, including important contact info, my Google Voice number, and a QR code of my webpage on the back.
