Math Homework for the Whole Year & sample


 I've received a few emails regarding my new Common Core Math Homework.
I'm so glad that many of you have enjoyed it as much as I have... you never know ;)
First, it is new this year. 
 My team and I were concerned about the amount of paper sent home each week and honestly... how much were the kids enjoying and completing it.
I believe in homework.  I think it is a great way to bridge the gap between school and home.  With the new COMMON CORE... I thought this might be the chance to create my 'idea' and see how things fly.
I wanted it to be simple, organized, informative and fun.
Thus... the one page/week math homework was born ;)
I went through our district's math program and broke the CC standards into weeks.
Each standard received it's own week. SO...
Side 1
- indicates the topic,
- CC standard code,
- 9 choices for homework (dealing with the specific standard)
Students are required to complete 1/night...
students that want "extra credit" can do up to 9/week.
- student name and parent signature
 
 
Side 2:
game board dealing with the standard
(one of the nine options from the other side)
 
When the students return them on Friday, I account for them and then set them aside for a slow day when we have a few minutes to hand them back out to kids and put them on their silver ring (see the above picture... this particular student has earned a lot of "extra credit" since she colored in and completed so many activities).

 
This side shows the various game boards.


 
This shows my complicated organization system :)
Half way through the year...
By the time the school year is over, each student will have a set of 36 math game boards to play with over the summer.
 
The parents and students have really enjoyed them. 

This is math homework for one week... click here for a sample.
If I missed a question, please leave me a comment and I'll answer it ASAP!!

I do not. I have 2nd only. I'd be happy to work with you to create the 3rd. I'd need to know the 36 topics that you'd like covered. My email is evansfamily_248@msn.com.
Thanks!!

Can you include the cover in the TPT unit?
Or did I just miss it?

I've been using these for 1st grade this year and have been able to use them almost every other week. There are a few I won't be able to use, but it's still a great price for what we can use.
