No Homework Binder

 

 

 

New year, new goals. This year, my students are going to be working on improving their study skills and discovering what will make them better students. ┬áTo help them with this, I’ve decided to implement the “no homework binder.”

No Homework

 

Each student has a page with their own name on it and a table that lists date, assignment name, and reason that the homework was not done. Every time a student does not have his homework, he will have to find his page in the binder and complete the table. Over time , we will be able to find out if there are patterns in the student’s homework completion. For instance, a student who habitually forgets to turn in his weeklong math worksheet will see ┬áthis and work on remembering to complete it on Fridays. Love this for personal accountability! It’s also a great tool to pull out at parent teacher conferences.
