A homework menu is a great option for taking the stress and work out of homework. It provides choice for students, which increases engagement and authenticity.
Gone are the days of one-size-fits-all worksheets for homework! Gone are the days of endless hours of grading! Gone are the days of families struggling to balance nightly homework with busy schedules.
I dreamed up the idea of a homework menu while thinking of new ways to give my students academic choice. Where was the choice in the worksheets I was sending home? Where was the personalization?
My answer- a monthly homework menu! A list of choices and options that children and their families can choose from, and they can choose when the tasks are completed.
A key component to our homework menu is the “other” section, where we encourage families to enter valuable learning they do on their own (reading about animals at the zoo, discussion a mountain habitat on a family hike, etc.).
By and large, we have had rave reviews of the homework menu! I hope you find success with it as well!
