Our school is a Title I school. Many students come from low-income homes, and our school has a grant so that every child gets free breakfast and lunch daily. We have a large English as a Second Language Learners population.
They work really well together and have great leadership skills.
Anyone coming to visit us would be impressed. These leadership skills help them to take ownership of the materials in the classroom, and they want to have new learning tools.
This year my students used the math journals that I am requesting and the homework is actually being completed. These journals break the pages down into days with only a few problems on each page. Each day reviews a different skill including basic arithmetic and word problems. They are great because students aren't overwhelmed with a ton of problems each night. I am excited for my students to also use the reading journals, which are laid out the same way as the math journals.
Homework is a great way for parents to see what the students are learning in school.
It offers students either independent practice at home or get help from a parent or older sibling. These journals offer the right about of practice each night and since there aren't a ton of problems, they are easy to review the next day in class.
