The Homework Incentive Program was created for teachers and parents. Homework can be monotonous for young learners. Now that my son is old enough for homework, I wanted to create something that made homework a time to look forward to. Your child will be motivated to complete homework and the bonus will be that you can spend extra time with him or her and not have to make homework a negative time, rather a positive. As a teacher, this would be a program that I would recommend to parents with children that struggle to complete homework!
This Program is easy to follow and you can adjust it to your child’s needs and interests. I like to use the rocket ship, because my young son loves the little alien in the window.
I wrapped them with small duck tape and after my son saw them he decided we needed to wrap all of them. We will definitely need more tape.
There are over 36 activities that you can choose to put in the pockets. I tried to keep 1-4 inexpensive and more “quality” time with my child. You can pick and choose the activities that your child would enjoy the most and is appropriate for your family and where you live.
There are a variety of different recording sheets that you can choose to fit the needs of your child. I have Monday-Thursday, Monday-Friday and Monday-Sunday. Choose the best fit for your families.
Your child can color the star for each day homework is complete (it could be as easy as reading for 20 minutes). As a teacher you could use this sheet with your “packets” you send home each week. It show the child that they are progressing towards the end goal. I also included recording sheets that allow you to write how much time your child is spending on homework.
