I was so sick of the "Mrs. Brady, I didn't do my homework..." and trying to keep track of it all. I believe that homework should be age and developmentally appropriate. It is a time for students to practice skills independently, and I only assign the absolute necessary. This system was a life saver the last few years! Students would come in, complete the folder, and after 5 missing assignments, they had to stay after school. When parents would ask what assignments they were missing, it was easy to show them, just take out the page that their student completed! Download, print, and use a view binder. Remember to print a log page for each student. Lots of cute polka dot background options, or choose the simple black and white.
