In my general education classroom. I usually have about 5 families where English/Spanish is spoken at home, and there is usually a few that is just Spanish. Our school sends newsletters and things like that in Spanish. But the things that I send home it's only in English. Usually an older brother or sister translate things for the parents. Of course as a classroom teacher I always want all of my parents to read what I send home.
So now that I have Virginia on board I now have a back to school survey that I send home. Of course Virginia might have to read the survey's when they come back to me if they write in Spainish.
My Parent Brag Sheet is a two pages where I ask questions about their child. This is the parents time to brag about their child; telling me about their child at school and at home. You learn so much just from reading these. I always tell my students this is homework for the parents. They get such a great kick out of that. I have to warn you though you might need some kleenex when you read these.
The second part I added to the file is a student survey. This is for the students to fill out in class. (3 pages)
So between these two surveys you get a well rounded picture of the student/family. If you are interested in purchasing this they can be found at TPT and TN. I apologize if the thumbnails at TPT are not working.
So what are some other suggestions that you would like to see in English/Spanish? Any suggestions would be great. Just leave a comment below and we will take your requests into consideration.
