Ok, so I'm totally new to this...but figured since I am trying out so many Pinterest ideas for my classroom for next year, I wanted to start blogging about them. The first idea that I have already completed and is ready is the "No Homework Binder." Definitely not my own idea, since I borrow teacher ideas all the time, but figured it would definitely be useful with the lack of homework preparation I've seen with many of my students. I'm hoping it will keep my next class more accountable for completing their homework assignments!
Basically, it's just a binder with alphabetized tabs inside, along with a reflection sheet that the kids fill out on their own and file behind their tab. This way, I will have something to show parents at Parent-Teacher Conferences when I have a student who consistently misses homework.
So here's the binder (I borrowed the cover from http://jackofalltrades-leslie.blogspot.com/2012/05/no-homework-binder-how-to-document.html).
