Product Description

Alfie Kohn argues that homework does not reinforce learning, but rather steals children's enthusiasm for learning. I could not agree more, and after we decided as a school to go homework free, the students thrived. Parents, however, were left in doubt. They wanted to interact with their children and support their education, but many did not know where to begin.

This project in a nutshell is a chance for parents to invest in their child's learning by building meaningful connections between home and school. Over the course of a month parents can invest time in activities that are connected to concepts learned in the classroom. Each month there are 16 activities to choose from. Students can use the sheet in any order they like and are asked to color in the boxes as they complete them. Allowing ownership over when and what students choose to work on at home, adds to their enthusiasm and fosters independence. Parents are left feeling confident in their abilities to nurture their child's learning and everyone ends up engaging in happy memories together.

The time invested is meaningful, fun and educational.

Examples of what’s included within the grid:

- Talk with your family about a memorable event or tradition. Write and draw about it in your journal. You might want to try and make the event into a cartoon.

-Write a friendly letter to a favorite author or illustrator. Look their address up with some help. See if they will write back to you, many often do.

-Fold a paper airplane. Then write step by step directions for a friend. See if your parent, sibling or friend can follow your directions. Afterwards see if they were able to follow your directions. What worked? What was challenging?

-Count all of the pillows in your house. How did you choose to count? Explain in writing in your journal how you counted. Also show how you counted.
