    Parental involvement
    By Ms. J

    Clip to ScrapBook
    I teach 3rd grade, and I love to have parents help out in the classroom. At Back to School Night, I usually hand out a "Menu of Opportunities" that gives family members a variety of ways they can help out in the classroom. They usually circle things that they are interested in doing, and I contact them as events occur.

    Parents participate in our classroom in the following ways: helping out weekly with students in Math or L.A., leading a craft or activity on special occasions, talking about their job as it relates to our curriculum, coming in and reading to our class when their child is Student of the Week, coming in and taking pictures at special events, creating a class scrapbook during our free time on Fridays, and I even have a few parents in particular who help plan parties and/or special events.

    Hope these help!
