Every so often I need to send in notes for the teacher, but my handwriting is terrible and the note is quickly scribbled on a tiny piece of paper that my kids are apt to lose. Am I the only one who has lost the ability to write by hand after typing on a keyboard for years?
I almost bought a cute notepad on Etsy, but unless you have to write notes for the teacher every week, a whole notepad isn’t really necessary.
Instead, a simple checklist that you can print in small batches and leave in your command center is all that you need!
The reasons I need to write a note to the teacher are pretty common:
- Drop-off change
- Dismissal change
- They forgot something
There’s really no point in writing basically the same note over and over again, which is why the checkbox choices are so handy! Most importantly, they are legible and offer just enough space to write in your child’s specific information (no more decoding lots of chicken-scratch).
Dads write notes, too!
Sure, most of the time Mom is responsible for communicating with the school, but sometimes (and for some families it’s always) Dad needs to take care of it. That’s why I created a more manly version for all the dads.
