To prepare students and let them know that homework is important, they are required to have a homework box. We will use shoe boxes and donated wrapping paper to cover and personalize each box. Students then take their box home, and then I know they are prepared to complete any assignment. I also have students sign this paper to confirm they understand what is necessary. If a student is unable to purchase any specific items, they just highlight what they are missing. I am then able to adjust or modify assignment accordingly.
