Tracking Homework Success - The Autism Helper

Tracking Homework Success

Categories: Curriculum Ideas | Data

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. 🙂

  1. i LOVE your ideas, classroom, lessons, seriously EVERYTHING. Is it possible to record your classroom in action? I understand for confidentiality reasons, you may not be able to, but I would love to see how everything runs in a short video clip. What does you small group station look like while an IA runs one station? Etc.

  2. Kelsey, I have often wondered the same things. I wish I could come and observe your class for the whole day, Sasha! Staying consistent with a schedule and keeping my IA consistent with her duties is my biggest challenge; and time management, oh boy. I don’t even want to go there. As much as my kids are in and out of the classroom, I just don’t feel like I get enough instruction time in, each day. It’s crazy!

  3. I would LOVE to Kelsey but I can’t put videos of my student online unfortunately. 🙁 I will try to brainstorm some solutions!

  4. I know! The scheduling and time management can be difficult. I’d love to video or have observers but cannot. I will try to do some more video tutorials! 🙂

  5. Hi! I was wondering how you find the time and materials to make individualized homework for every student? What kinds of things do you send home as homework? I’m a pretty new K-2 Mod/Severe SDC teacher. I’ve found somethings they all need to work on, like writing their name, that I have them all do regularly, but I struggle finding things appropriate for each student to send home every night, and even more with finding the time to put it together. Thanks!

  6. I really like this idea and could see myself using a system similar to this in my own classroom. I was wondering if you find this activity to be very motivating for your students? I am always looking for ways to help motivate students.
