The concept of Star Homework is adapted from Whole Brain Teaching and the Universal Homework Model. The idea is that the pupils get to choose how much homework they do, and what activities they do.
Each night has a list of options (typically the same each night), and each completed task earns 1 star. The model provided explains that homework is assigned on Mondays and turned in on Fridays. Pupils then record how many stars they earned at the bottom of their page and record that on the Star Homework Record Sheet. The recording sheet is for the WHOLE CLASS. Set a goal at the beginning of the week of how many stars the class must strive to earn as a whole. Decide on a reward of some kind if they meet this target.
This pack is completely editable, except for the spelling homework tasks. Feel free to amend it as you see fit to meet your needs.
