2014 Homework Calendars – Make Homework into a Game!

UPDATE: Β Here are the 2015 ones!

To go with the homework programme,Β and as a request from the VIP forum, here are your 2014 homework calendars.

As last year, they are very easy to use and end up making homework into a game!

1. Set which lesson you’d like the kids to study before the next lesson.

2. The kids (or parents!) sign what they did each day.

3. See who got the high score at the end of the month.

What could be better!

P.S. For those of you worried about parents copying the homework programme, this is part of why they don’t, you only set the homework to the classes that have bought the software – hence they all want to get in and you get the crazy results!

Enjoy!

Be genki,

Richard

P.S. Β Just in case you need the 2013 ones, they are here.

Hello, I'm Richard Graham. And when I was a kid I found school to be sooooo boring... So I transformed my way of teaching. I listened to what the kids were really wanting to say and taught it in ways they really wanted to learn. The results were magical. So I'm sharing it all with you now...

    Happy new Year! I love Tracy’s idea of the regular calendar. It would be usefull not only for teachers but for their students as well.

    Great idea. I’ve linked this to also include a diary. I get my young Thai students to write a daily diary of their lessons. This improves writing and vocabulary as well as injecting responsibility and imagination.

    Jamie,

    what kind of sentences do they write?
    About how much?

    Something like: “We played RPS. I asked: ” Do you have any pets?” or what?
    At the point I use these calendars the kids aren’T doing phonics yet so I wonder how you go along?

    Hi Richard,

    Happy New Year! I hope it’ll be a good one for you. I know I bother you every year, but are you going to be making a regular calendar this year too? It’d be much appreciated if you did! I really need my Genki Calendar!
