Organization - The Agenda Book is a great tool to keep students organized.
Homework is written on the board each morning.
The children copy it into their agenda books before they begin their morning work. Part of their homework is to read for twenty minutes. The children should write down the title of their chapter book. (It would be great if they include the chapter.)
Communication - The Agenda Book is a great tool for Teachers and parents to communicate.
I will be checking the agenda books each morning. I will initial the front of their agenda books, if their homework is complete and their agenda book is signed. When they earn all their stickers for a month they earn $50 in class money. Feel free to write a note, since the agenda books are checked each morning, it is great way to stay in touch.
