Today's Topic: Collecting and Returning Homework
(ignore the follow disaster on the desk please :)
I have an 'in bin' on my desk specifically for homework.The kids know that all homework goes right in here.
Last year, I had one bin for both homework and classwork-but I found it got too full too quickly and things were all mixed together.
By separating them, things are less mixed, it gets full less quickly and when I only want to grade a certain thing, I know which bin to pull from.
After pulling out the homework, I separate it into piles.
|Separated by homework type|
|Nicely stacked and organized...Ready to Grade!|
|Bic Flair Pens-I love all the colors!|
I try to grade a couple times a week-and if I have the time that day, I'll grade it that day.
To return homework (after I enter the grades), I put it in their mailboxes.
Next year, I'm thinking of adding an initial/sign-in sheet by the homework bin...too often I hear that "But I turned it in!" My response is well I don't have it. This will keep them more accountable.
I'll be back tomorrow with the winner of my giveaway! Thanks to the bloggers that helped me out :) and to all of you that entered!!!
