Once learning goals and objectives have been set in place, they need to be communicated to the parents. It is not enough to give the parents a booklet showing them the goals, but the church must also show them how they can use the information to supplement what they are teaching at home. Along with this information given, there should be an explanation as to why it is given to them and the biblical mandate to parents from Godâ€™s Word. A parental training opportunity, such as a workshop or seminar, would also educate parents on ways or methods that can be used to teach their children in the home. It could also show parents who may be struggling with similar challenges that they are not alone. These parents could be a source of support and fellowship for each other.
As a way of continued communicating with parents, other than a one time or yearly event, would be a posting of learning objectives outside the church classroom.Â Teachers can post their learning objective for the day on the outside of their door, at registration areas, or in bulletins, or newsletters. A teacher could also create an online or print newsletter with all of the pertinent information of her class. Whatever the teacher decides to communicate, the important thing is that what is going on in the classroom is being shared with the parent.
