This is definitely a labor of love! Much like you, I wanted my 4th graders prepared for their End of Year Assessment. Many states have some form of assessment aligned with the Common Core State Standards. In our case, it’s the Georgia Milestones (GMAS).
I found that the rigor of my homework assignments derived from my adopted Envision Math curriculum didn’t quite match up with the rigor of this high-stakes assessment my students are mandated to take. What could I do? I searched and searched and never found the perfect resource to meet my specific needs… So I set to work making one!
Each week includes 4 nights of homework, Monday – Thursday. The homework can be printed front/back, so you only need 1 sheet of paper per student! (SAVE on COPIES!) Parents will love the consistency of the assignments. Dealing with work and family commitments often leaves little time for homework help. That’s why I wanted my homework to be concise, but meaningful.
I KNOW how important spiraling is, especially with math, where it’s easy to “forget” content that we once knew. Spiral Reviews are included throughout the homework Sequence.
An assessment is included for Friday that assesses the skills and problem types addressed in that week’s homework. This assessment will also help you determine content mastery and will motivate students to complete nightly homework. The assessment is also only 1 page (front only). A digital Google Forms version of the assessment is also included.
✎The BUNDLE includes 34 Weeksof homework, of which 4 weeks are Test Prep.
The 4th Grade Weekly Homework can also be purchased separately.
My Classroom Homework Routine-
On Monday, each student gets a hole-punched copy of the homework for the week. I ask that they keep the homework in their notebooks/binders. They are expected to show their work on the actual homework paper or a separate sheet if there’s not room.
As a bell ringer, I like to display the answer key on my IWB and have students self-correct. I have a student-helper check homework completion for me so that I can hold students accountable for actually doing the work and not just copying answers. This individual awards points on Class Dojo for homework. I had very few students who lost points for homework. Once I’m finished with administrative tasks (attendance, messages, etc.), we discuss the problems in whole-group, especially those that may have been challenging.
On Friday morning, after discussing the previous night’s homework, students will take the weekly quiz. It has been paper/pencil in the past, but I’m transitioning over to Google Forms. (I used Google forms for other assessments over the past couple of years, and have absolutely loved it!)
I do not take a grade on the weekly homework… It’s checked for completion. My real accountability piece that I grade is the Quiz. It is directly aligned to the skills practiced on the homework. The quiz grade goes in the grade book.
I started this routine using a Test Prep packet I purchased at the end of last year, and it worked beautifully. I plan to start my year off using this same routine.
Special Info about Google Forms assessment -
The Google Forms assessments are a slightly altered version of the weekly assessment. I love using Google Forms and Flubaroo to help me with grading. It’s a win-win-win when the teacher, students, and parents all have immediate feedback on assessments! However, in order for auto-grading to do its job, there can’t be any extended constructed responses. What I’ve done is rewritten these items types into either multiple-choice or short answer on the Google Forms version.
What you’ll actually get is a link to a page that allows you to make a copy of my original Google Form assessment. Each Week will have a different link, so you’ll make a copy of each weekly assessment.
After setting up the assignment in Google Classroom, you will go into the form and take the quiz yourself to create your answer key in your Google Drive account. Then you will enable Flubaroo on the Google Sheet linked to the form. Flubaroo will do all of the grading for you. You can have it grade after all students have taken the assessment, or you can enable autograde. This is my favorite feature. When enabled, it will grade the assessment and immediately email students' their results.
All of this prevents any data sharing on our parts. You won’t have access to my student’s responses, and likewise, I won’t have access to yours. It’s a clean copy of the assessment for anyone who purchases the pack.
