What are the benefits of getting parents involved in the classroom?

Parents

One of the most overlooked, yet very powerful teacher tools is parents. Encouraging parental involvement in the classroom shows your students that their success is important to both parents and teachers. Use newsletters, conferences, email, telephone calls, and notes home to reach family members. Let them know what is going on in the classroom and invite them in to make presentations, read to the class, plan an activity or just help out. When parents are well informed, and get involved in class activities, kids do better.
