Organize A Year of Editable Positive Notes with Color

Home-School communication is KEY in our classrooms.  My own classroom doesn’t start with report cards for our kindergarten friends until after the first of the year.  Because of that, I try to make it a point to send off a quick, positive note each month to my parents just to give them a little insight on their child’s progress.

I always have good intentions of sending a note off for each of my students every month, but, quite honestly, I can never remember which students I’ve sent to and I’m horrible about keeping track on any kind of record-keeping device.  However, I came up with a great idea to solve this problem using Astrobrights and their amazing array of colored cardstock and papers.

 

Each month I have a different themed note card . . . one that is personalized with each students’ name. And I print each month on a different colored Astrobrights cardstock.  Not only does the beautiful colors make the notes appealing and fun, but the color helps with organizing and keeping track of which notes I have already sent and which ones I still need to complete.

I keep all of my notes in a little tin like the one below.  I found mine at Target.

It is super easy to see all the separate months when they are in the canister.  So for instance, in September I printed my cards on Terrestrial Teal™ cardstock.  When I took a look in my canister in late September, I could see that I still had a few Terrestrial Teal™ colored cards still in there.

When I pulled them out, there were the names of the student who I still had left to complete.

The color made distinguishing each month a breeze and personalizing each card meant I didn’t have to keep a log of who had been sent a card and who had not.  I knew that as long as there weren’t any cards left in that month’s color, I had made all my communication notes for that month.  It’s SO easy!
