In the age of digital and online communication, blogger Deb Tomarakos touts the benefits of the old-fashioned "speech folder" to keep parents up to date on students' progress. She includes introductory letters, the school calendar and an update sheet that lets parents know what their child has been working on:
"Old-fashioned or not, I have found that speech folders are an easy way to communicate with parents. While many of us have entered the digital age, our students still come to school with backpacks, and parents search those backpacks for information about their children's school days. My speech folders are created from simple two-pocket folders. Because I work with young students, I wanted to put something cute on the cover of the folder. After seeing many different folders for school organization on Pinterest, I came up with the idea of creating O.W.L.S. folders for speech. O.W.L.S. stands for Our Weekly Lessons for Speech/Language."
