This year, I had the challenge of having Specials first thing in the morning, so checking everyone's homework was not always possible. That was why I came up with these easy homework checking system that one child is assigned to do each week.
In the morning, I write the assignment name and date in the appropriate spot. Then, when the Homework Checker comes in, they cross out everybody who hands in their homework to our black bin. The Homework Checker is also in charge of hunting down whoever forgot to turn in their homework that morning. If somebody does not have theirs, the Homework Checker simply circles their number. It is very easy for me to see who completed or did not complete their assignments.
I use a number system in my classroom of 20 students. If you need to edit this product, please let me know, and I can help you fit it to your needs.
