Here is a way to make writing homework easier for students, parents, and teachers!
This Writing Homework Portfolio gives parents the help and tips they need to support their young writer. The booklet is printed and given to the student at the beginning of each quarter. Students are responsible for maintaining the book. They have it at home so they can work on the writing when ever they set aside time to do homework. Parents have a rubric checklist inside the booklet to go over for each story. This helps them see what skills their child is picking up and using in their writing and what skills still need support.
I have my students bring me the homework packet every Friday morning. I read the work as they come in and we talk about a GLOW that they have in the story. I hand them the packet back immediately so they have it to work on when they need it.
Be sure to look at the pages and set up the writing portfolio how it works best for each student. There are several paper choices to choose from. You set up the book so it fits the needs of your students.
