This is a homework template made in excel to be used in a composition notebook or spiral notebook. This template has a place to type the date, learning goals or objectives and homework assignments for Monday- Thursday. There is also a check off box at the bottom of each day to remind students to complete their daily reading and fill in their reading log. (I have also included a template without the reading log check off box.)
The template is formatted to fit nicely on the pages of a composition notebook without hanging over. If your school limits your copies, like mine does, you can type in the homework and print out 1 copy and then print two to a page on the copy machine.
I have included a picture of one of my students homework journals. Since my school limits my copies the homework template appears smaller as I have copied two to a page on the copy machine.
Each Monday my students glue the homework page in their homework journals. They glue the template on the sheet of paper on the left and then draw 4 squares on the sheet of paper on the right. (See picture.) They complete their homework each day in the 4 squares they have drawn. On Friday students turn their homework journals in to be reviewed.
Please Note: This is an excel document. When you are typing the objectives or adding in homework assignments you can not simply hit the "enter" button to move to the next line. You must hit "alt" and "enter" at the same time to move to the next line.
