Parent Contact Log Simplified with Google Forms


Simplify your contact log by using a Google Form. I've included the one I use at the bottom.

We are constantly contacting parents and keeping a log can become long and cumbersome.  Most administrators will ask for your list of contacts so I use a Google Form for easy tracking and sharing with administration.

By using a Google Form, I can get all my entries in a spreadsheet.  If I am asked when I made contact with a specific parent, I can quickly find that in the spreadsheet by using control+f and typing in the name.  I also like the spreadsheet to see patterns in contacts.  Am I always contacting the same parent at the end of each nine weeks? Do I make frequent contacts on a specific day? 

Here is the contact log that I use, you can use it as is or modify it for your classroom needs.

Baby Yoda Pixel Art Template

  This template is set for 3 sets of answers.  I have the answers that are currently set, you will need to reformat them to use with your content.   Baby Yoda Pixel Art Template Be on the lookout for this activity given 2 ordered pairs and asking for slope, y-intercept, and the equation of a line.  I'm also formatting this for converting between percents, decimals, and fractions.  If you want to reformat it before I post the above activities here is how. 

Long Division in Google Docs

  I was making a long division worksheet for my students in Google Docs when I realized that it wasn't under equations. Here's how to insert it.  This does not look very pretty so I have another video on how I do it in Google Sheets which takes longer but looks nicer. 

Blooket Game

  A week ago my students kept asking to play Blooket so I looked into it.  Blooket is much like Kahoot and Gimkit but they earn money.  Blooket has several different game modes and the students LOVE IT.  Once a student has been eliminated they will keep playing to earn more gold which they can use to buy rare items.  Each week Blooket has a theme and those rare items can be bought for the week and then they are gone; the items include accessories or special characters they can play as.  My students will play for hours if we let them.  When we finish a game they are ready for another round.  Blooket has a FREE version which has been enough for my class but you can also upgrade to a paid version.  They have games that are already made or you can create a new game.   My students love the battle royale mode and the gold quest the best.  If you haven't given it a try I would highly suggest it.
