I would like to do homework differently next year. This year I basically try to give things that are of course review. I try to give something math on monday, tuesday writing, wed reading comprehension, etc I feel I could do something better next year. I have noticed that my third grade team gives homework in a packet that is due each Friday. I guess this is pretty much what I do but I do not put it in a packet and it is due the following day. I have noticed some teams send a monthly homework chart home and it is things that they can do but they do not have to make copies. For example: Find five nouns in your house. I just know I want to do something different but I do not know what. Many of my students this year do not even do their homework and I am constantly making copies. I guess I am also wondering if what I am doing is meaningful? What do you do?
