Keeping Track of Assignments


July 05, 2006

Each summer I prepare a term-by-term work calendar for all my students. In September I give them a term calendar for Sept., Oct., Nov., and Dec., which includes specific, day-by-day reading assignments, homework assignments, scheduled tests, book reports, projects, special days, etc. Students have a calendar stapled into the front cover of their notebook, and parents are required to sign it. I repeat this for each term. This allows parents and students to plan ahead. I also have the parents read and initial information letters, which explain the purpose of the calendar, routines and expectations. I also let them know that field trips, assemblies, etc., can delay the work a day or two. If something needs to be cancelled, the students write it on their calendar. This is a great tool for tracking. This system helps students be accountable for their time and keeps the communication line between home and school open.
