Homeworkopoly

I did a post here about my view on homework.

This post is all about what I do to inspire my kids to get their homework done and bring it in to school on time.

Homeworkopoly – which I found on Pinterest is the key to my sanity and has been very effective. I have only just introduced Homeworkopoly this term (Term 3 in Australia), when interest in homework was starting to wane and the students needed a bit of a pick up in their motivation.

The students need to bring their homework in on time and completed. Then they get to roll a dice and move their gorgeous laminated face around the board.

If they land on a Community Lunchbox space, they pick a card from here:

When they land on Chance, they choose from here:

The other places they can land on include:

  • Mystery Prize: Choose a prize from the special box where things such as notepads, smelly pens, rubbers, sharpeners, etc are kept.
  • Game Spot: Choose a quick max.15 min game that the class can play at some stage during the week e.g. bingo, buzz, etc.
  • Free Homework: Choose one item from the homework sheet that you would like to skip this week.
  • On the Bus: Do a job for the teacher to be able to move on e.g. wash paintbrushes or sweep, etc.
  • Brain Binder: using the teacher’s laptop, complete a brain teaser/puzzle online.
  • GO: When students pass ‘GO’ they can choose a sticker.
A whole lotta fun and very quick to set up!
