Positive Postcards- Establishing Positive Home/School Communication Early On!

Happy Monday, everyone! Today I am linking up with Kelly and Kim's Kindergarten Kreations to join in on Markdown Monday! I am putting my newest product, Positive Postcards, on sale for 20% off THIS WEEK ONLY! Here's a little bit about Positive Postcards…

I created Positive Postcards out of my own personal need. I am a firm believer in "happy calls," and try to call each one of my students' families during the first week of school to give them some positive news. I think that this is a great way to establish positive home-school communication. I even find that families are much more receptive when I have to call with not-so-good news when I have previously shared something positive with them.
However, although I try to personally call during the first week, sometimes the day gets away from me during the rest of the year.  I find that my "happy calls" seriously dwindle after that first week of school.  Enter… POSITIVE POSTCARDS!
By printing and prepping these postcards at the beginning of the year, I always have them on hand to send home with one of my kinders! All I have to do is choose the appropriate postcard (there are 8 different versions in 5 colors- even printer friendly!), write the student's name, and slide it in their folder! My name is even already printed on the postcard! No longer do I plan to send a positive note home and remember while I'm cooking dinner that I never got around to it!
