Another thread about recess got me thinking: What do y'all do with kids who don't do their homework? In my class, if a student turns in their homework for the entire week (I only assign one page per night--one side is a spelling worksheet and the other side is a math worksheet) the student will receive a star on "Mr. A's All-Star Board." Five stars in a row = lunch with me and ice cream afterwards. Yes--it gets expensive, but the kids have something to look forward to and it motivates them to get their homework done. I rarely have students not turn in their homework because everyone wants to have lunch & ice cream with me , but I don't have consequences for those who don't turn in their homework. I don't take away recess, mainly because the students who don't turn in their homework are the ones who need outdoors time the most. What do you guys do with kids who don't complete homework? Most of my colleagues assign detention (yes--we have school-wide detention in elementary school). Personally, though, I don't agree with detention at the K-2 level.
