I know it’s important to keep parents updated on what is happening in my classroom, but I have so little time. What are some practical ways I can communicate with parents that are not time consuming?

Employing a variety of methods to maintain parent communication is ideal as some parents may be tech savvy and others may not.  Once communication modes are set up, they don’t have to be time consuming.  Folders that are sent home, flyers, phone calls, websites, blogs and texting are all options that can be used to keep parents up to date.  For more inforamtion regarding building rapport with parents, refer to our training video at http://ctsp.tamu.edu/instructional-videos/effective-classroom-and-behavior-management-best-practices-for-cte-instruction/ch-2-building-rapport/
