From the TCT archives: A simple summer task encourages students all year.
To notify parents of positive behavior seen in the classroom, at the beginning of the year I purchase teacher postcards and address one to each student. During the year when I observe examples of positive behavior, I write notes to the students and parents and drop them in the mail.
At some time during the year everyone gets a good news postcard. The children love receiving the mail, and positive classroom behavior is reinforced.
