Every time Daylight Savings rolls around, I completely forget & my time schedule is all off.
Don't get me wrong - I LOVE the longer days, and it signals the warm up...
* and how much closer we are to Spring Break & the end of the year ! :)
But... I always feel like this Sunday FLIES by...
So, as I was sitting here making my homework sheet for the week, I thought why not share with you?! I don't know how you do homework, but we (my first grade team & I ) send home a weekly packet on Monday, and the kids have to complete the assignments and turn everything in on Friday.
This helps me because I don't have to check homework every day, and it allows parents & the kids to decide when they want to do homework.
We have a lot of kids that are involved in sports and other activities outside of school, so if someone has a busy Wednesday, they have the option of doing more homework on another day and nothing on Wednesday.
We've been doing it this way for years, and I love it !
This is what my homework packet looks like..
If you want the file, just click <HERE>!
If you DO grab it, let me know what you think, how it works in your room, or tell me how you do homework in your classroom :)
Homework time for little ones is always an area of big debate.. we get parents who want MORE homework, and there's always parents that want less. You just never know. This system has been the most successful, so we stick with it. On top of this sheet, the kid also have small spelling assignments for each night & the expectation that they'll practice their sight words. *Fingers crossed* right?
Happy Daylight Savings... and good luck waking up on time tomorrow! I know I'll need a nap tomorrow... haha :)
Thanks for stopping by !
