Back-to-school traditions are an important way to help international journal students and families tap into the opportunities of a new school year. As teachers, we enjoy setting up and decorating our classrooms, organizing new school supplies, or maybe planning a brand-new unit to try teaching this year. We might even be thinking about bringing some new digital tools or media into our classroom instruction.
But back-to-school is also a great time to consider how we communicate with, and support, families during this part of the year that’s so pivotal to students’ success. To help make this year’s back-to-school time a little easier, we’ve put together a set of customizable templates focused on supporting you, your students, and their families during the transition back to the routines of the school year.
You can use any (or all!) of the templates below and customize them to work for you and your students. Whether you want to set norms and expectations for device use, communicate your class’s daily routines, or help families support their students’ learning with helpful at-home resources, we’ve got you covered.
Every school year is a new beginning and a fresh start. We’re here for you! Thank you for all you do for your students and their families.
