Use this checklist to help your students who move quickly through math problems, making silly mistakes.
Speeding tickets and other forms of "slow down" warnings don't help to change habits, but this checklist helps to build good work habits!!!!
I have used it with my students all year long and it has made a tremendous difference. As the school year progresses, I gradually used the checklist less and less with those students who needed it and their work did not revert back to their old ways.
Parents have greatly appreciated seeing these come home with homework as a great support. I staple the checklist to the individuals who need its homework.
I included 3 different checklist wordings-- homework, classwork and assignment.
