As a parent, I love to know what my child is working on in school. Whenever I ask my 4 year old what she did at school today, she always says the same thing, “We played at recess and had snack.” I have to say, “Well, I heard that you read Tacky the Penguin today.” before she’ll remember that she did something else at school. I started thinking that I’m sure my 1st graders aren’t telling their parents all the skills they are working on at school either, so I created this skills checklist to send home each week.
I fill it in with 4 new skills for each week. They may be something new that we are working on during the week or it may be something that I think every child in my class should know at this point in the year. I have also put behavior or work study skills in the boxes as well. After filling in the four skills, I type some tips for parents to help their child at the bottom of the form. I print these off and circle how each child is doing at each skill.
Clear as mud, right?!
The picture above is an example of one that I have already typed up the skills and parent tips. Here is a form for you to use. It’s free on TpT. I couldn’t get it to download correctly on Google Docs.
If you have any questions, feel free to email me.
