Homework Monthly Motivators...getting students to turn in homework!

I am sooooo excited to share this new unit with you today! I am very happy with how it turned out and love the student response I've had from it!

I bring you my Monthly Motivators!

Let me share a bit about this unit with you!


Here are the pictures from my class! I LOVE seeing the progression each day!



What really helped me to keep track of who turned in what homework was the recording sheet I made. 

Each month has a creative theme! I place these posters on my door so the students can put their promise and daily pieces around it!
Month themes are:

January
Skating in NICE homework

February
We love to turn in homework

March
I'm lucky I turned in my homework

April
Our homework is raining in
We turned in 
"Egg"cellent homework (Easter theme)

May
Our homework is blooming

June
Turning in homework is so sweet

July
Our homework sparkles (4th of July theme)
Our homework is splashing in

August

September

October

November

Every morning my students rush in to turn in their homework and get to coloring their daily piece for the door! This simple coloring tool has worked so well!


I hope you all have a great week! One more for me and it's spring break! I SO got this:)

  3. I really love this idea but I will have to figure out when they can color their piece to go on the door. We already have morning work that they need to do so they may have to do it when they get done with their work and have a few minutes to color them. I am going to try this out when the students come back from Spring Break. Thanks for sharing your idea.

    1. You can always have them color it when they have a quick second. I don't do morning work so they are able to do it. What about before lunch or recess? I hope your kids love it...mine just eat it up:)
