This FREE activity supplements your reading of the Greatest Homework Excuse Book Ever by the Fourth Grade Students of Sycolin Creek. It's a cute book that discusses different excuses that a kid could come up with in order to explain why he doesn't have his homework. In the end, the student tells the truth and the teacher is caring and understanding, proving that there will be grace in school and that dishonesty is never a good policy.

I used this activity after we read the book - I challenged each of my students to create their own imaginary excuse. The students had a blast and we combined them into a class book for our classroom library.

If you use this activity page with your students, I'd love to hear about it! Please e-mail me at joyinthejourneyteaching@yahoo.com
