Back to School Linky - Homework Log

I am linking up for an early back to school blog hop.

Teaching is a Gift

I have shared about my homework log before, but I have revamped it. 

I wanted the entire year to fit on one side of the index card. On my old one I had to print the last 2 six weeks on the back and I didn't like that.

Here's how it works: 
Every student has an index card. I taped the index cards onto the clipboard so that I can easily flip to the one I need. I assign my kids numbers, so they come in handy with this system.

I had a student help me out with this for some of the year. If kids got a check mark all week, they would get a lottery ticket! I made classroom lottery tickets. You can check out that post here.

Anyway... here is my new version.

Here is the file if you want it. There are a few versions. This one is personalized for my district's calendar.

Let me know if you want the editable copy. Jump on over to the blog hop for fabulous back to school ideas!

I am with you in that I hate homework too! It is the #1 thing I want to have figured out and changed for next year. Last year I made it way too much! I'm loving your simpler plan as well as your hw log. I would love an editable version if it isn't too much trouble. Thank You!!!

Great Idea as well! I am a first year 2nd grade teacher and I would love to use your homework log this year. Do you have a blog stating how you used it? Would you email me an editable version?

I love your idea of keeping track of homework. Last year I made it way too much and did not keep up with it. I would greatly appreciate it if you would email an editable version if it isn't too much trouble.

Thank you! Hope you are having a great summer...mine is almost over...I report on August 1st.
