The paper situation at school this next year is going to be interesting. Our building went through way too much paper last year, so we are going to be closely watched this year. I don't know what the expectations are going to be yet, but I have been thinking about ways to limit my copies.
Last year homework took so much time and copies. I felt like we were wasting so much paper! So this year I am going to do a homework journal. I have put together activities for the first semester. I am such a planner, so this might be a little bit of overkill since I don't know if it will work. :/
Basically this is my plan right now:
Mondays - writing
Tuesdays - math
Wednesday - spelling (We will glue a spelling tic tac toe board in the front cover every six weeks.)
Thursday - math
I am going to have the kids decorate their journals. I am hoping this will encourage them to keep up with them. We will see...
Anyway, I have high hopes for this. Here is what I have so far if anyone is interested. :)
