Phone Calls They Can Brag About
Try this idea by Diana, a 4th Grade Teacher, in Sulpher Springs, TX to build rapport with families.
Here’s an idea that’s a bit of a twist on the old favorite of calling home to offer families good news about their child. I make regular calls home in order to invite parents to tell me something special about their children.
I also encourage the parents to brag about their child to friends and family and to give the child a special treat for being so wonderful. Then, I have each child report to the class about their parents bragging, the treat they enjoyed as a result of their efforts, and my phone call home.
