Weekly Newsletters

Hi Friends!  This week I thought I'd briefly share how I do my weekly newsletters.  For the first time this year I've gone to an e-newsletter.  I try my best to get this emailed out to parents Sunday nights.  There are a few families that prefer to get a paper copy of the newsletter, that I send home on Mondays, but most LOVE the e-format.  I love being able to send out brightly colored, fun designs AND that I get to save paper :)  It's also super easy to attach an extra page of pictures if we've been working on something fun that I'd like to share with the families.  If you'd like to see the kind of information I include in my newsletter, click below to see what's going in my room this week!


I've recently learned how to create editable Power Point file, so I decided to create a resource to allow other teachers to easily design bright, cheerful newsletters.  Click below to check out my Spring Editable newsletter pack.  This pack includes 14 different editable templates, some with headings and some without.  There are also 4 black/white templates for those who still want to print and send paper copies!  It's not exactly like my personal template (I personally use Publisher), but has the same cheerful feel!


Finally, it's Sunday, so I'm sharing the pages I created for my students Challenge Notebooks.  Click below for you freebie :)  (NOTE:  you'll see the Rainbow write page I created using my students' spelling words; I included a blank template if you'd like to put in your own words!)


My students will also be working on some pages from the life-saving Busy Teacher's Best Friend April edition by the fabulous Katie King!


Have a great week!!
