Did anyone else feel like Earth Day kind of snuck up on us this year? I think I felt that way because last week was our end of the 6 weeks and we had a holiday on Friday. Is Earth Day usually this close to Easter, too? Anyway, here is a rundown of what I’ll be teaching this week for Earth Day!
How do you assign reading homework?
I have tried multiple ways. I have sent home paper books that the students keep along with comprehension worksheets. I spent hours of my time making copies of leveled books so that kids would have just right books. I then had to fold and staple each book. You can see why that got old. I have sent home actual books from our book room. The kids had a book bag that they were responsible for taking home each night and reading. I had a few books get lost and a few kids who never remembered to take their book home, so that wasn’t working for me either.
