Time to link up with Holly at Fourth Grade Flipper for Tried It Tuesday.
This is perfect to share because I got this idea from Holly this summer. I saw this on one of her posts.
It inspired me to make my own Homework Board.
This is what it looked like after the first month of school.
What is working?
My students know what is due and when.
I use a "No Homework Binder" system for returning homework. (I have blogged about this a lot) This chart has been helpful because students don't ask me "What's it called?" when they are filling in their sheet.
I also teach "regular math" and I have a separate calendar for those students. It is labeled clearly and a different color. This too, has been helpful.
What would I do differently?
I would make it a six weeks calendar. This would enable the entire six weeks expectations to be posted. For this year though, I will keep it monthly.
I had these posters made at Office Max this summer when they were having a super special for teachers. They are sturdy and BIG. I will have them made again there for those two reasons, but I only do that when it's on sale!
Can't wait to see what you have tried!
