I use this homework for my primary (k-2) special education classroom as nightly homework. At the end of each school day, the students must write one or two sentences about what they did or learned during the day. This gives parents a talking point for when they get home instead of the kids saying they did "nothing" at school. They then need to write back to us about what they read that evening. The homework is differentiated for each grade level.
