I just took a class on AVID (Advancement Via Individual Determination) strategies and learned about some great ways to develop good organizational skills for student in lower grades. I designed these planner pages for my third graders to keep track of their homework and hold them accountable for completing it each week. I added a couple touches that are relevant in my own classroom (like spelling word list, reading homework, setting a weekly goal, choosing an exercise to do daily, parent signature, and a place for parents to leave comments as well). Students write down their homework Monday-Thursday, then I check their planner and the homework on Friday morning. I will print a new copy every week for students to put in their binders. Feel free to modify it to fit your own classroom and enjoy!
