Let’s be honest - many of us wouldn’t give homework if we didn’t have to...kids need time to be kids! These choice boards are made to provide fun, engaging homework activities that won’t bog down your students and their families with tons of busywork. Some activities each month are designed to relate to fifth grade standards, while others are intended to encourage physical activity, scientific inquiry, self-expression, social emotional development, or just plain old curiosity and creativity!
This resource includes:
- a choice board for every month August-June
- editable version if you want to make your own
- a family letter that you can use to inform parents about the homework
- paper for writing and list paper to go with some of the choices
All you’ll need to do is specify the number of choices students should complete and the date it should be turned in. (You can either write it in and make copies or just add text boxes). Students check off each box they complete, their parents sign, and done. Easy peasy for all involved!!
** By the way, some of these activities can provide great conversation starters for morning meetings or to introduce lesson topics!
I hope the resource can take the headaches out of homework for you, your students, and their families. Enjoy!
