In doing the homework, I would like for every child to try their best. Some things will be easy and some things will be much more challenging. The point is to try their best. If there is something that they truly cannot figure out then I ask that they circle that item for me to see and go over it with them later. And as much as possible, I would like for them to work independently. It is good to give extra explanation as needed and give some assistance in some areas but encourage them to try and do it on their own.
Now, for the students who turn in their homework every day for a month, they get to have teacher lunch with me. I keep track of their homework on a chart near the front door, which you can check as often as you would like. At the end of each month I make a list of who has turned in their homework every day and they then join me for lunch in the classroom. They receive a treat, a pencil and a special award. This is done every month, typically on a Friday.
