Homework

Clip to ScrapBook #5

I stopped sending home homework last year-best thing I ever did. I ask my students to read, we do some projects (at home and school), and they do make-up work. For years I would spend an hour pulling out math/spelling/reading homework, to get back work from 3-4 students. It was a huge waste of time. I'm in an 80% F/R lunch school and often times there's not parental help. By assigning a few fun projects a year, I have found my students take a more active role in their own learning. I make sure they have supplies they need/want and I always give them class time if they can't do it at home. It's something they are proud of and not something the bus driver finds or a parent brings in 4 months later and says "was my child supposed to do this?" !
