This collection of weekly homework sheets is designed to give students practice in key writing skills and conventions of print. Students review correct usage of commas, apostrophes, and quotation marks, rules of capitalization, spelling tricks, subject-verb agreement, proper word choice, and more. Homework sheets include quick refresher tips on grammar and usage so parents can support their kids as they do their homework. A great way to strengthen the home-school connection!
Give students the gift of time.
You might consider passing out the homework on Monday and expect it to be returned on any day up to and including Friday. Parents will love you for this, especially since most students are involved in sports activities, scouts, music lessons, or religious activities. Giving them all week to complete homework keeps the parents and children in control and allows them to decide which nights are the best homework nights. This is better than putting undue pressure on students and families on a certain night, and it is far better than listening to a litany of excuses about why the homework was not completed.
