I won a national Homework Ideas Contest with this hands-on homework idea. Although this packet is only three pages, I guarantee that you will use variations of it every week throughout the school year; and, the kids will look forward to doing it at home and sharing it in class. The homework takes the students minutes to complete and is easy on parents, too. The teacher's work is minimal. The included letter to parents explains everything. All the teacher needs to do is fill in the blanks with the sound(s) of the week and the due date. When the completed assignment is brought to school, it turns into a game that the whole class plays. You can actually see the progress the children are making as the game is played. Parents and kids love it! This work is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution 4.0 International License.
