So I was in our pre-service training this week and one of the teachers was talking about how she did dialogue journals with her students each week. And it hit me---why not try to do them with parents???? I could send the little composition book (decorated of course) home on Friday and ask them to read and respond at one point in the weekend. I could give them direct feedback on what we did over the week, anecdotes about what their child said or did and then what we were working on.
Has anyone ever done anything like this? Did it work? I don't often get feedback from parents regularly, but the more I thought about it, I really didn't ask for it either. This would be a way to communicate with questions/comments that come up throughout the year.
