I have found that simple and routine is the best way to keep track of jumpstarts and homework assignments.
Check out the format I use for my 8th grade Language Arts class and feel free to use my grammar, vocab and book ideas from my website.
I use this for Language Arts in 8th grade, but it could be adapted to any grade level and content area!
If you like this plan, purchase my first quarter bundle with all you need for 10-15 jumpstarts each day that comes with my 40 vocab words for first quarter (separate item on my site).
The first quarter bundle comes with the 40+ slide powerpoint and quizzes and everything you need to have students learning 40 new words, 7 stems and all the parts of speech (from gerunds to correlative conjunctions and infinitive phrases) during the first quarter of school!
