Interactive Science Notebook Parent Homework!
One of my favorite assignments to grade and check in is the Parent Homework I assign to have the students complete with their parents in their Interactive Science Notebooks.
I have the students glue in the page (trim to fit) and they have a week to let their parents know that THEY are the ones who have homework this time around. The parents will give positive comments to the students on their notebooks and I know that:
1. Parents/Guardians are seeing the science in-class work that never gets home
2. Students are being held accountable by not only me but from their parents/guardians as well.
Thank you for considering Middle School Scientists at Work!
