Back To School Freebie

Reading many of the blogs I follow I am amazed at how many schools have started or will be starting next week.  I thought our district started early.  So to celebrate going back to school I have a freebie. All I ask is if you download the file be sure to become a follower of my blog if you haven't done so already.

Since homework is something that students will be doing during the school year-  It is important that students set up a homework plan.  Here's a freebie for students to fill out along with their parents to set up a homework plan of their own. 

I either give out the homework plan on the first day of school or during Open House.  Both days you are sure that this sheet gets in the hands of the parents.

If you like that idea, you may also like this one.  On the first day of school I send home a Parent Brag Sheet.  This is homework for the parents.  The students love the idea that their parents have homework to do.  Parents fill out a form telling/bragging about their child.  There have been times where I had tears reading the parents comments about how proud they are of their children.  If you are interested in this check it out here at the Teaching Oasis.

Thanks for the "freebie!" That's a great idea! I, too, send a homework sheet for parents the first day. It is interesting to read their comments about how their child learns, interests, etc.
