Homework can be the worst. It undermines everything we do to even the playing field at school. Some kids have no homework help, while other parents request even more than you give. It was a no win situation...until now. Homework BINGO is a differentiated approach to making homework meaningful and accessible to all students. Best of all it adds some fun and challenge! An easy, print-and-go format (including a size perfect for gluing into journals) makes the stress of homework melt away.
Here's a FREE Speller's Choice Menu that can be used with any spelling list. The kids love it because there's a variety of activities to choose from, and teachers love it because these activities manage to incorporate phonics, grammar, writing AND math!!! :) I just place it in a sheet protector in their take-home binder for them to use with homework every night.
Homework bingo - If they turn in their homework for that morning they get to write their name on any square. On friday's I will pull out two bingo chips...and whatever names are on that square they will be able to pick out of the treasure box. Know a teacher who does this, the kids love it
