Parent Communication: Tracking Positive Contacts

I'm excited to be linking up with two of my favorite bloggers, Angie from Lucky Little Learners and Ashley from Schroeder's Shenanigans in 2nd for this month's 2gether We are Better Linky!
I wanted to share a quick little freebie and tip for you for keeping track of parent communication.  My school district places a huge emphasis on making positive contacts with parents. I find it is so easy to lose track of all the day to day interactions with families, so I wanted to keep track of POSITIVE contacts only.  Any time I interact with parents to celebrate and tell them something awesome about their child I write it down.

There are always a few kids that I feel like I'm having so many not so fun conversations about (for behavior, academics, etc.) that they really really need to hear the positive.  I really do want parents to know how much I love and care for every one of my students regardless of the challenges.

Here is a little spreadsheet I created to keep track of these POSITIVE contacts that is quick and easy for me to use.
I keep it on a clipboard on my desk so I can quickly add the date and code for any interactions I had that day. I find it really holds me accountable and is a great reflection on my own teaching. Grab a copy for FREE here!
