Communicating with parents is a huge part of being a classroom teacher. Today there are numerous technology tools from which to choose from to make this happen. To date, Buncee stands head and shoulders above them all when it comes to creativity and ease of sharing!
With Buncee newsletters, the possibilities are absolutely endless! Buncee allows not only the personalization of parent newsletters, but it also takes them to the next level.
Looking for a background that fits each subject and unit is a piece of cake with Buncee. There are unlimited choices! If you can think of it, Buncee already has it! Stickers and animations abound to accent each slide - no matter the subject or unit.
By far, my most favorite part of using Buncee to create parent newsletters is being able to allow my students to record the audio for each slide. This has quickly become a favorite activity for my students each week. The first week, I had only a few students volunteer to record our slides. Now, I have almost the entire class eager to record each week. I love having my students involved in the process.
Creating a Buncee newsletter is not a task, it is a pleasure. Buncee makes it so much fun to create parent newsletters. Since my classroom has a theme, Buncee provides the perfect backgrounds to highlight my theme. I eagerly search for the perfect stickers and animations to accent what we are focusing on in each subject. I am never disappointed! Whatever I need, Buncee has already thought of it and created it for me to use.
Buncee just makes it so much fun to create - anything! I enjoy being able to offer students the opportunity to be the voice parents hear explaining what we will be doing each week. One parent even said to me, "Yes, I love the idea of having the students participate! It adds a special touch, and I appreciate all the different ways you communicate with us." Buncee truly provides such a creative and entertaining way to communicate with my students’ parents.
