I have never done newsletters before until this past school year. LOVED it. Especially when it came to conferences and parents would say " _________ says he/she never has homework" That's when I chime in with, "Have you seen the Newsletter?" The newsletter didn't just have upcoming events, but it had spelling words, vocabulary words, and always on the back was the homework log. Here it is below:
There was a specific spot in their Dragon Binder to place their newsletter. We gave each child a sheet protector and a label that said "Newsletter" that they put behind their black folder in the Dragon Binder.
I made the newsletter using Word 2010 so I could upload any clip art images I wanted. Hope this helps you if you choose to make one!
