A little self-monitoring can go a long way. We have been using my Leveled Homework resource this year and it has made my life a billion times easier. And when I say a billion – I literally mean a billion. Homework is prepared for each of my kids at their individual level. Now comes making sure they actually do the perfectly prepared homework. Some self- monitoring and competition can make the world of a difference. You need to ensure there is a positive consequence for doing homework beyond just adult praise or work completion.
We started off with charting completed and uncompleted homework each day.
After that, we switched it up a bit. Now we are completing a countdown of how many days in a row each student has gone without missing homework.
We are having a competition to see who can go 50 days in a row without missing their homework. They are super pumped and that competition bug can grab even the most unenthusiastic little learner. 🙂
