I'm having trouble with a select few students who are not taking materials home with them. I had one parent in a Dec. conference tell me she had no idea I sent home weekly updates (4 months into school!). I decided to do my updates via email. However, I still know that some students are not bringing home things that have been graded or things we've done in class. Does anyone have any idea how I can get them to be responsible 4th graders, without adding another "thing" for me to do. I tried weekly folders, but it didn't help. Any other ideas?
