Students have to write in a log every time they do not turn in their homework on time and explain themselves. This helps teachers keep track of how many times the same student does not do his/her homework, makes students think about why they did not do their homework, and establishes accountability.

Also can do it for Valentine's Day and Christmas. Kids can discover surprises in their mailboxes from mom/dad and siblings
