Second, I haven't liked how I've done homework, but I never had any inspiration or time to think about it until I saw this post. Abby from Third Grade Bookworm is having a linky.
Third, while I was on Facebook I saw CrissCross Applesauce's post about whether or not to give cell phone numbers to parents. Another discussion spurred by Facebook! Now this past year I had some difficult behavior issues that required parent contact in the moment. I had to use my cell - yes we have phones in our class - but it just seemed more quick and effective. Plus, a lot of my parents do not have internet access. BUT - almost all of them have cell phones! I just thought it was unfortunate side effect of working in a low-income school. ENTER Remind 101.
Have a great weekend!
