I have a love/hate relationship with homework. As a teacher, I want the parents to know what we are working on in school. As a parent, it's a little more complicated. I want to know what my child is working on in school, and how she is doing. However, I DO NOT want to spend my entire evening working on homework! We are busy, as most families are. We have something going on (gymnastics, dance, soccer, ...) almost every night of the week during the school year.
With this in mind, I wanted to try something new for this coming school year. I am going to be sending home a weekly homework menu with activities that review what we are working on in class. These menus will give the students choice as to what activities they would like to complete for the week. It also gives them the entire week to work on it. So, if they have basketball practice on Monday and Wednesday, they can plan to do their homework for the week on Tuesday evenings.
This project has been in the works ALL summer, and I am beyond thrilled to have it finished! I knew that I wanted to make it editable because as much as I like to plan out the year, I have to be flexible. I may need to change out some of the activities to fit our needs. I also knew that it was important to make it editable for YOU! Your curriculum may be different than mine.
I will be placing these in a homework folder along with a notebook. The students will take these home on Monday, and will not have to return them until Friday.
I also included a monthly homework option, if that is something that would work better for you.
In this packet, you will find a zipped folder with two separate files. The first one is a secured PDF where I have typed in all of the boxes. I have monthly calendars, as well as two different weekly calendar options for the entire year.
The second file is an editable file. You will be able to type into each of the boxes to make this packet work for you.

Now, here is even better news! Did you know that the annual Teachers Pay Teachers Back to School Sale is coming up?
My entire store will be on sale on Monday and Tuesday, but you can go ahead and start putting things in your cart or on your wish list now.
