Okay, I'm sure most of you have seen this website, but if not, you MUST! I have a special place in my heart for Ryan Gosling (who doesn't?!). I thought the site had only Ryan Gosling, but there are some other actors as well if he doesn't float your boat (again, how could he not?!).
I noticed The Lesson Plan Diva is having a linky party for HW. I tell ya, I don't enjoy giving HW. Mainly because I don't enjoy looking over it and whatnot. When I taught 5th grade, HW was assigned every night and checked the next day. We were departmentalized so once the kiddos came in my room, they knew to get their HW out and I would walk by and quickly check it to see if they had it. If not, I wrote their name down for their homeroom teacher and they would lose some recess.
Now, we assign HW on Monday and it's due on Friday. Here's what last week's HW packet looked like:
This past week I started Class Dojo with my kiddos because we were really having a hard time earlier on. So I checked their reading log every day and if they had it done, they would earn a point and if not they would lose a point. This seemed to help motivate them to do their reading every night.
This is a short post as I'm getting ready to go to my BFF's son's birthday party and it's about a 2 hour drive down there. I hope you head over and link up with the Lesson Plan Diva!
