This year I'm trying a new math homework opportunity/assignment.

We are watching the amount of paper we are using and I've found that I have been using WAY too much paper... and I'm not sure it's exactly the type of math homework that I want my students completing with their family.

I enjoy hearing my kids 'talk' and 'do' math... so... I've taken the 36 specific math topics we cover in 2nd grade and created a game board for 1 side of the page. On the other side is a quick description of the Common Core standard and 9 different activities the kids can choose to do throughout the week. When they complete the activity... they will color in the box. Friday they will return the 1 page (yep, 1 page for the whole week!!!) with the various boxes colored in. 4 boxes will be the minimum... but I always have a couple students/parents that want 'more'... well... complete all the boxes if that is your desire!!

A quick parent signature to verify completion and we are good to go.

They'll return the page on Friday and then I'll get it back to them so they can always have activities to do at home on weekends or holidays.

I'm excited to try them out!

I'm hoping this idea is great for students, parents, the budget and me (less grading and book keeping ;)

I'd love to give the whole set away... leave a comment with your email and I announce the winner Wednesday at 9PM!!

Oh Lori, this package looks awesome. I love your Daily Math for 2nd grade. I used it all year last year-faithfully. As a matter of fact, I already have my packets made for the beginning of the year. These homework activities would fit perfectly with my plan for this school year. I'll be wishlisting them immediately.

Thanks,

Lori,

You emailed these to me about a week ago because I had won them from another blog. I just want to let you know how much I appreciate them. You sent me both 1st and 2nd, which is perfect since this year I am moving to a multi-age first and second grade class. I am so excited to use these and I know my students will love them! Thanks again!
