How is Homework Changing?

How is homework changing? I-pads are going home on Tuesday night for kids to do their homework. This creates a lot of different possibilities instead of just paper/pencil. I wanted to share with you some of the items that have been turned in by our class. I have been very proud of many of my second graders. They are doing a Great job on the work they are doing! 

The kids were given a sheet of multiplication story problems and they were asked to pick only a certain number of them to complete. A drawing app was to be used to draw out a picture to solve the problem, and then answer the problem. These students not only have their picture, answer, but they also remembered a unit. 

Another example was a response to reading example. Students were asked to take a picture of the book they were reading at home. Then write five sentences about what was happening in their book. They were asked to follow a rubric to ensure getting the most points possible. 

I can't wait to see what they do next week! I just love watching them work with technology!
