Homework. Oh homework.
I've worked at many schools where it is mandatory to give homework, so wherever you fall in the homework debate, you must be looking at this product because you need English homework ideas for your students!
This was created for my Year Six pupils here in the UK (the last year of primary school) when they're at that stage of the year where NOTHING seems to motivate them anymore. For you and your students, it could be the time right after Christmas break, the time after testing, or at the end of the year. Or perhaps you're looking to extend homework tasks or challenge gifted/talented students.
These 'Homework Projects' give students a bit of choice, a review of writing genres, and a connection as the tasks link together. Even better, the ideas for these tasks came straight from my students! There are 6 projects and I have another 5-6 I will add soon. Ideas included are:
-Fruit and Veggie Garden
-Educational Trip (field trip)
There are writing checklists to go with each writing task and it is EDITABLE so that you can change it to fit the needs of your class. Check out the preview to see more.
