This bundle includes ten weeks of my middle school homework packets. All you need to do is print them out, send them home on Monday (or the first day of your weekly class cycle) and collect them at the end of the week or the beginning of the next week. Each packet includes four days of ELA grammar, vocabulary, and writing practice, as well as accountabilities pieces for independent reading. Best of all, each packet is sprinkled with humorous memes, jokes, and entertaining assignments to limit the homework gripes and growls.
Each packet is divided into four days of independent work and includes at least one activity to check accountability for weekly independent reading Each packet includes:
* Five challenge vocabulary words and their definitions (students are responsible for looking up parts of speech and providing original sentences to support the definitions provided (I often use this vocabulary activity to give a brief quiz on each word, testing for definition, part of speech, and the ability to use the word in context by writing an original sentence).
* A video activity, which consists of a short video highlighting the proper use of punctuation or a grammatical concept. Guided notes are provided so that students have a full set of functional notes on the concept by the end of the activity.
* A page that practices the skill/concept presented in the video
* A page that provides writing/vocabulary practice
*A page that includes an activity that checks for accountability for weekly independent reading
There are so many writing/grammatical/vocabulary skills to teach and so little time. These packets ensure that you will have skills practice covered in all of these areas AND not have to prepare homework for ten weeks. This is the first of four packets, and all forty weeks of homework will be available before the end of this (2018) school year. Coast through the rest of the year AND be ready for next year right now!
