      Hey Nereyda -

      I've got some great Parent Guides you can send home for math and literacy that surround the CCSS. Click the link below, scroll down and click again.

          There are several options that you might consider. What I would suggest would be to send home a letter to your students' parents/guardians on the first day of school and ask them how they would best like to communicate (email, social media, letters, etc.). This would allow parents to know that you are doing your best to accommodate their means of communication. Also try and establish some sort of online resource in which parents could have access to their child's grades and resources you are using in class (PowerPoint/other forms of multimedia). I believe this will allow parents to feel like you are actively trying to develop communication and allowing them opportunities to keep up with their child's progress in your classroom.
