Clip to ScrapBook #4

I quit sending home homework because literally less than 10% of my kids brought it back. My para would spend at least an hour getting everything ready on Mondays, and with such a low rate of return I'd rather her spend that hour working with students. Punishing kids for not bringing it back didn't seem fair because at such a young age (and since they're all struggling students) it's not really their fault that their parent can't or won't help them with the homework. I also feel like my kids work really hard for the 7 hours per day they're in school already and it seems unfair to send additional academic work for kids so young. If parents ask me for extra practice I will send home things like sight word lists and extra books and stress that they need to do the activities with their child (rather than giving the kid a worksheet that I expect to get back).
