RC to parents

I just took Responsive CLassroom 1 last week and fell in love! It was awesome!

I just have one question concerning parents.

How do you introduce this to parents? My instructor suggested having a Morning Meeting. Sounds great but what would I do with them?

I would greatly appreciate any suggestions from others.

THanks

Hi there Packerfan!

Morning Meeting with parents is what I do at my Open House. I also send home a ton of communication. Have you explored the RC website? You can do a Google search on their site to search their article archives and find some great information.

Also, I would check out Parents and Teachers Working Together. Great resource for communicating and working with parents.

I can't wait to hear what other ideas people have!

Parents and RC

A morning Meeting with parents is a great idea. I have an open door policy about parents, so they can come any time during the school year. I've found that parents don't always like to participate in a large group of parents (they are embarrassed or there is a language barrier), but if a parent attends your regular morning meeting, they almost always have fun!
I'd also suggest having parent conferences early in the school year. At my school, we have the conferences as early as the 2nd week of school. It's a great chance to get to know the parents/students and gives you te opportunity to explain RC.
Hope this helps!
