This year I decided to use assignment booklets in my classroom as a way of keeping parents informed on a daily basis. It takes too long for my young students to copy assignments and information so I type it on the computer, copy, paste and print. This takes about three sheets of paper and 5-7 minutes of class time. The messages are cut apart and each child glues them into their assignment booklet. I also send home a copy of weekly spelling words this way.
