My son just started attending a special day class preschool from 8:10am-1:10pm Monday-Friday. He comes home everyday with a daily communication book with a completed activity sheet that describes the different activities he did, which aide he did them with, how well he did, etc. But the only activities that are listed are only from 8:30am - 9:30 or 10am. Never anything about what the did for the better part of the rest of the day. I'm not necessarily suggesting that they don't do anything for the rest of the day but what's the point of telling me what he did for an hour but not for the other 4? Also, there is a communication log in the book for communication between me and the teacher, but neither of us ever writes anything in there. Besides maybe asking this^^ question, what am I supposed to say? I look through the book and talk to him about school each day, but because I have nothing to write in this book I feel like I'm failing as a involved parent lol.

No it doesn't sound weird. The rest of the day is probably filled with outside/exercise time, snack time, maybe she'll read them a book. The space where you can ask a question is there only if you Have a question. I'd just ask her for a run down by the hour of what his day consists of from beginning to end. You don't have to write something every day unless you have a question or maybe your Son woke up in a bad mood or with a little tummy ache. Then you just write it there to give her a heads up just in case he complains a lot. My Son's Preschool Teacher wanted to know if they went to bed late on a particular night so she was prepared if he was going to be over sleepy or a grouch that day!
