This No-PREP homework product was designed to weave many skills together: speaking, listening, reading, & writing. Weekly assignments require each student to WRITE answers to specific questions and SHARE their answers orally to their classmates. As the year progresses, the classroom community
is enriched by information shared by each child. The answers to their assignments are varied because they reflect each student’s own responses. They connect writing with many of the First Grade reading and math skills. Seasonal themes and concepts are used such as leaves, pumpkins, family, friends, dinosaurs, telling time and MORE!
This homework product was designed to replace the traditional “rooting around in my closet ‘cuz it is my share day at school” AND target First Grade skills!
Students answer in complete sentences, practice prior to their presentation day and present it to their class. Every child has a consistent assigned weekday. The parents look forward to the varied weekly assignments and are amazed at their child’s progress throughout the year.
Here’s what some teachers are saying about our product.
“One of my best purchases last year! I loved using it for Homework and letting my students have time on Fridays to share from the Author’s Chair. Even my most reluctant writers were sharing by the end of the year!
“ This is a great product. My students love the prompts. They address areas the students want to write more and more about which makes this teacher happy!
