Routines Cycle 3: Publishing Celebrations
Day 3: Inviting families
Challenge: Keep track of family members who attend publishing parties. Consider sending a quick thank-you note to any family member who attends a publishing celebration. After three celebrations, phone home to any student whose family member has not attended. It could be that your invitations aren’t making their way home and therefore a personal invitation might make the difference when trying to get all parents into the classroom. However, this would also provide an opportunity to find a time that is convenient for a family member.
How will you communicate your expectations for the celebration to family members?
How will you help students whose family members can never make it to school for a publishing celebration so they don’t feel left out?
