Subject: Homework Grading Policy
I teach 5th grade math and I don't grade homework with percentages as secondary teachers would . I do have a system of checking that it is done. I have a blank grid sheet clipped to a clip board at the front of the room. When class begins the students have a warm up activity that should take a few minutes to complete. That is when I run to each table and check off that a homework is completed. The grid sheet is blank so I can write names in according to their tables. This changes with each unit of study and I keep the old grid sheet to look back on. I simplly check off that it is done and not that it is correct. oN the days that we gover the problems the studnet self chekc the work with green pens. I tell my parents about the green pens so they can see if their child is checking their own homework. The clip board and the grid sheet listed by seat makes the checking go quickly but still maintains that students complete homework each night.
