Tired of students telling you they forgot to write down their homework?
Can't update your homework on your class website (in addition to in class) every single day? Use this worksheet to help make students more responsible!
On the first day of school, I give my students this worksheet as homework. They need to write their name and their phone # only. My students are still young, and some have a hard time remembering their own home phone number, so this step is important. The next day, students have a few minutes to walk around the room to collect 3 other classmate's names and phone numbers. Then we staple this inside their homework folders.
The students now have multiple friends to call to verify homework, and call if they need help.
