In order to front-load information and to get parents involved, I usually send links to all resources that I use in the classroom. Through ClassDojo, I am able to share a hyperlink that directs parents to educational videos. In doing this, parents know what skills and strategies their child will be working on. It also provides parents with support in the event their child struggles with the homework.
My goal is that parents play the video, watch it with their child, and discuss it with their child.
There are other resources that teachers will find beneficial such as an option for parents to translate messages into 30+ languages.
