I am impressed you counted high fives! I was happy to get one e-mail from a mom in week one. http://eslcarissa.blogspot.com/2013/09/maintaining-contact-with-parents.html 🙂 I may pick this up next semester though, it is nice to see all the numbers.
Thanks Carissa for giving it a read. I like your blog, parent contact and parental engagement is essential. Have you tried Remind 101?
I thought this post was very interesting! I was entertained by notion of quantify our week and trying to determine what the numbers really do tell us. Looks to me like your numbers add up to a terrific first week of school!
Thanks Crystal, I hope your numbers added up to a great first week.
