In the back of their binders, I put some wide-ruled paper for them to actually do their homework on.
I keep packs of paper in my cabinet so I can refill all year long. No, and we talk about it before they leave kindergarten.
That last word usually gets the most reaction, especially when I tell parents at Back to School Night.
This year, I actually got cheers and audible sighs of relief.
Sorry for speaking for you, but again, I know how you awesome you guys are and I had a feeling you'd have no problem sharing supplies with your families who need it.
Since there was no way to know the calendar dates for every school, I included a task for EVERY day.
If they are not meeting goals or performing at grade level, I've already talked with parents before this point.
I want them to know that support at home is crucial and that I'll be checking homework weekly.
The last thing I want to do is put strain on a family because nightly homework hasn't been done.
What I give to students is a monthly homework calendar.
