Imagine a classroom filled with children who enjoyed doing homework. Imagine that homework was purposeful, engaging, and creative for students? If this sounds good to you, then check this out!
This product includes 12 monthly homework choice menus for students in grades 4-6, plus an editable template. Categories include math, reading, writing, and social studies/science. Students will choose a certain number (chosen by you) of projects/assignments to complete per month. Students can keep track of their work in a homework notebook or homework folder, while some students will take final projects beyond your expectations!
I suggest starting each month with a Homework Showcase where students showcase their final projects. They can showcase all of the projects they did, or just the one they are the most proud of. This allows students to take ownership and pride in their work. Plus, they will be motivated by peers to take chances for their future projects.
You will find that MANY of the choices are integrated. For example, a social studies choice involves reading and writing (i.e. research to learn about a Martin Luther King Jr. and write about his challenges and accomplishments).
Students have CHOICE over what they are learning, while connecting their education to the real-world. I have also included a Homework Showcase Rubric to make scoring easy!
