Hello everyone! I am very excited to introduce a new series of homework packets I am working on! This is the first installment of the series. I've needed some new motivating homework ideas for my 2nd graders so I finally came up with this one! Let me explain how they work,,
I have made end of the unit math packets for students to take home for homework in order to get some extra practice before the test. The gist of the packet is for your kiddos to help their friend (the character will change with each packet) earn their gold star award for their work. The students must complete the entire packet (1 page a night) and receive the allotted amount of points in order to help their friend receive the gold star. There is an extra practice page at the end of each packet for those students who want to make sure they get all the pint required.
If, when the packet is handed back and they received the correct amount of points they can then cut out the gold star and glue it to the gold star ticket for their friend! They can keep these if they would like!
A chacrter/goal page - this page is in the front of each packet. It will tell the student about their new friend, what they need help with, and how to help them earn their gold star.
Teacher grade/tracking sheet - This will be included in the packet. The teacher is the only one to fill it out but it is also a visual for the students and parents to see whats getting graded and how.
Homework activities - there will be a different homework activity each night for the students to complete Monday through Thursday. They turn the packet in on friday.
Extra practice page - there will be one of these included at the end of every packet for the students who feel that they would like a little extra practice or a little extra cushion to make sure they get the required points.
Gold Ticket & gold star - there will be a gold ticket where the students will glue the fold star as well as a gold star to cut out and glue on the ticket.
