Homework Rules

Together, come up with no more than 5 rules to help accomplish homework and make it a positive experience.


  1. That is awesome. I used a similar contract when I was teaching. As for the HW regulations, I guess it would depend on where you were teaching. I taught a lot of kids that had zero support at home, so HW was more like punishment. Hard to say.

    I'm swinging by from the MBC Under 100 Club. I'm looking forward to reading more.

  2. This is the best idea ever. When my step-daughter comes to our house, she seems to think that she doesn't have to do homework here. Like we are the vacation place for her in that department. I showed my hubby this, and he things this is a great idea to get her motivated!! Thanks soooo MUCH!!

  3. So glad that you like it! Let me know how its works for you!
