I’ve always found homework to be a struggle. I’ve struggled with what to assign as homework, consequences for not doing homework, and having so many of my students not have the support at home to do their homework. However, when I stopped giving homework, I struggled with parents wanting it., and being upset that I didn’t actively assign it. I didn’t want homework to be stressful on my students, their families, or me. I wanted homework to be optional, fun, and meaningful without my students giving up their time to be a kid or spend with their families. I wanted parents who wanted homework have it as an option, and parents who didn’t want it not feel like their child was going to be punished for not completing it.

I also wanted students who didn’t have a lot at home be able to do their homework. I didn’t want parents spending a lot of money, if any, and I didn’t want to have continuous worksheets. I wanted students who have parents who worked 3rd shift to have options to complete homework without always needing an adult.

It is my hope that by using Tic -tac -toe work you will alleviate the struggles I’ve had each year with homework. You can choose to reward students however you see fit and works best for you. That may be your school PBIS system, like myself, class dojo, prize box, stickers, etc.
