This is a set of templates to implement the Homework Without Tears program. It is a great way to start the year, a new quarter or a semester for elementary students. Each night of the week, the students have an assignment from me relating to the process of homework in the hope of avoiding conflicts later in the year. On Monday students bring home my homework policy, on Tuesday students draw a picture of their homework 'drop spot', on Wednesday students discuss with their parents where an appropriate study area should be, on Thursday students create a homework survival checklist, and on Friday students look at their schedule to work on time management. On Monday students get their parents to sign the first page which also provides me with an original parent signature to reference for the rest of the year.
