    theteachersdesk: Homeworkopoly I was supply teaching in a grade 5/6 class last week and they play Homeworkopoly every Friday afternoon. The game was run by a selected gameshow host and went on as the class completed any outstanding work. The kids loved it and I learned that this is a fun way to encourage them to complete their homework each week.  This class plays the game every Friday afternoon so it is cumulative for the week. However, you can also choose to let students role every time they hand in their homework, it’s up to you. Students who do not hand in all of their homework do not get to role.  I was able to find instructions and great printables online: Game board with street names Chance and Community Lunchbox Cards Setup Make game pieces for each student. Print off the game board and hang it in the classroom.  Find one game die. Print the “Chance” and “Community Lunchbox” cards and cut them out.  Store all game pieces in containers by the board.  Getting Started When a student brings in homework have them go over to the board, roll the die and move. This can be done every morning or at the end of the week. The students will continue to do this throughout the year. It never has to end. Deal with special spaces as the students land on them. Assign a rotating “Game Show Host” to run the game each week.  Special Spaces MYSTERY PRIZE – When a student lands on this space, they can pick a prize from a pencil box or maybe the teacher could have little grab bags with the mystery prize in them. BRAIN BINDERS -Printable, foldable paper puzzles that range from very easy to very challenging. GAME SPOT – The game spot is used for playing games from your own classroom. FREE HOMEWORK – The student gets a free homework pass for the night when landing on this space. (Usually not a problem with happening too often, if so, check it out. Watch closely when moving around the board.) TAKE A SEAT ON THE BUS – When a student lands here, they go to the yellow square diagonally across the board and sit there. When on this square, the teacher can have this student read to the class aloud, do problems on the chalkboard, or pass out milk, for example. These are just a few examples of what the student could do, feel free to use your own ideas. GO – When passing go, the student may receive a little prize, such as picking a piece of sugarless gum or little trinket out of the pencil box of goodies, whatever the teacher thinks is an appropriate prize. Enjoy!

    Homework Monopoly. "This board is used as a homework motivator. Students make their game piece on the first day. I laminate them and add a velcro piece to the back. Students move on the board according to how many homeworks they pass in."

    Just in case in ever a teacher... Downloadable bulletin board - In order for a student to play the game, he or she must complete their homework from the night before and hand it in to the teacher. This is how the student moves around the game board. If the student does not have their homework finished, they don’t get their chance to shake the die and move for the day. Instructions are on the site - great idea!

Tons of bulletin boards and door decorating ideas! #education #classroom #teachers

Cool Bulletin Board idea to "spotlight" a student or famous person. I would do both. Maybe every week a different actor, playwright, designer, etc to research to extra credit or a weekly report, and every now and then a student, to make them feel special having been up on the same wall as a big name.
