Here are five ground rules of effective communication with parents: Begin the year by explaining how and when you'll keep in touch with them. Let parents know that you value their questions and concerns and would never minimize them by responding "off the cuff" or "on the fly."

5 Natalie Cordero Collection Review
I believe this collection was really informative & well prepared. Teaching students about living and non-living things is a very important concept. I believe that the resources in this collection really help grasp this topic. It has a lot of useful resources that I believe as a future science teacher can help not only the students, but the teacher as well. She also made sure to include different resources for different grade levels, which I believe was a great idea because as future educators we never know what grade we can be switched into and it is important to know how to teach a subject for different grade levels. The fact that she included organisms for grades K-8 was a really good idea, that is something that I will be sure to include next time I create a collection. Overall, I really enjoyed reading through the different resources in her collection, and will be sure to use this collection in the future.
