I love that you've thought so hard about how much homework to give, and you are so intentional with what they're doing. I feel honored that Text Detectives are a part of your routine! Thanks so much for sharing what you do. Jenny

Do all of your students (children as i may say that) are getting only this sort of intelligent graphical homework? My niece is know in 3-d grade and her father literally had to order her homework from site like this. It wasn't so hard, but he simply had no time to do it with her.

that's cool that you try to help people to do their homework. Not all the people are good at studying and i believe that they really appreciate to you. Finance Homework Help | Statistics Homework Help

I do agree with your point that homework is the essential part of the school. Sometimes students don't get time to complete this just because of overloaded assignment and many other works. There Are some companies which offer get papers done facility and provides professional to complete your task in a very good manner. So you can take help with that.

How to Make a Better Homework Schedule for Your Family

Verywell / Zackary Angeline

Why Homework Schedules Are Effective

  • Developing a Schedule

Other Considerations

Do you frequently have homework struggles with your child or teen? Or, does your student procrastinate doing their work? Maybe they even fail to turn in assignments. If any of these scenarios resonate with you, a better homework schedule may help.

A regular homework schedule establishes predictable times when homework is to be completed. Once the homework schedule has been in place for a few weeks, you may even find your child will begin doing their homework without needing to be reminded—although you may still need to monitor their work progress.

If you're struggling with homework completion in your household, or if you're having daily battles about allotting the appropriate amount of time to homework, you're not alone. That's why educators recommend developing a homework schedule—with input from your kids.

Once you set a homework schedule, then there are no questions about when the work will be done. It also communicates clear expectations; having a homework schedule helps kids understand what is required of them. And following the schedule encourages them to develop a good work ethic.

Schedules also help prevent procrastination and instill good habits like completing work on time. Homework routines also improve study skills and encourage kids to plan ahead.

Other benefits include developing your child's work ethic and organizational abilities. By helping your child complete their work at regular intervals, you are modeling how to manage time and projects in the future. When you send them off to college , they will know how to pace their work so they can avoid all-nighters at the end of the semester.

How to Develop a Homework Schedule

To develop a homework schedule, start by talking with your kids. Get their input on how they would like to manage their time and incorporate their homework into their daily routine. A successful homework schedule allows kids to finish their work and also have some free time.

Give Kids an Option

If you ask kids when they want to do their homework, their first answer might be "Never" or "Later." But if you dig a little deeper, your child may tell you what matters to them as they plan their schedule. This information will help you avoid scheduling homework during their favorite television program or when they usually get online to play games with friends.

When you include your child in the decision-making process, you also will get more buy-in from them because they know that their concerns were heard. You don't have to give them their way, but at least considering what they have to say will let them feel included. After all, this homework schedule is about them completing their homework.

Allow for Free Time

Some kids can step through the front door and buckle down on their homework right away. When this happens, they reap the reward of getting their work done early and having the rest of the evening to do what they want. But most kids need to eat and decompress a bit before tackling their assignments.

As you develop your homework schedule, keep in mind your child has already spent at least six hours in class. And this time doesn't include getting to and from school or participation in extracurricular programs . Allow kids some free time before beginning their homework if that's what they need to unwind.

Establish a Timeline

Generally, you can expect about 10 minutes of homework per grade level of school. This means that a third-grade student will need about 30 minutes to complete homework. However, the amount of time needed can vary dramatically between students, teachers, and schools.

Find out how much time your child's teacher expects homework to take each evening. If your child takes a lot of time to complete their work or struggles with homework , talk with the teacher. Your child may need extra instruction on a task or tutoring assistance—or fewer homework assignments.

Pick a Homework Spot

Designate a comfortable and efficient spot for your kids to do their homework. This workspace should be well-lit, stocked with supplies , and quiet. The workspace should allow you to provide some supervision. 

If you have multiple kids trying to complete their homework at one time, you may want to find a separate location for each child. Sometimes kids can complete their homework together at the kitchen table, but other times having siblings around can be distracting. Do what works best for your family.

Put It All Together

Now that you know what your child's needs and concerns are for finding a time to do homework, you need to come up with the actual plan. Creating a homework routine is really just one piece of creating a daily school year routine .

For the homework time itself, get it down on paper so you can see exactly what they will be doing and when they will be doing it. Do this for each day of the week if you have different activities on different weekdays. Students who are assigned larger projects will need to review their homework plans regularly to make adjustments as needed.

Expect your child to work consistently throughout the assigned time. Avoid having multiple homework sessions, such as one before dinner and a second one after dinner. Starting and stopping may mean children may spend more time getting into what they are doing than working continuously.

Be Consistent

Once you have decided on a time to do homework, stick to the plan! It usually takes about three weeks for most children to really get into the habit of their new schedule.

If your child or teen has difficulty maintaining concentration for the length of time that their homework should take, then you may want to carefully consider breaking up the work to take advantage of the time when your child can focus.

This added step is especially important for children and teens with depression or attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). They may benefit from multiple smaller work sessions and more frequent breaks.

Even though the idea behind creating a homework schedule is to get your child to work consistently and independently, you may need to look over their work when they are done. This is especially important for younger children.

Make sure they understand their assignments and that they completed a reasonable amount of work during the homework session. If you find your child is having trouble actually working during their homework time, troubleshoot to find out what might be the issue. Sometimes kids need extra help and other times they simply need more motivation to get their work done.

If you find that your child continues to struggle with homework even with a schedule in place, you might need to dig a little deeper. Consider discussing your child's issues with their teacher or pediatrician.

Sometimes kids are reluctant to complete their homework because of undiagnosed learning disabilities. It could be that your child struggles with reading comprehension or has a processing disorder. Or it could be that your child is struggling with a mental health issue like anxiety .

A Word From Verywell

Establishing a homework schedule allows children to build some important life skills that will help them as they navigate high school, college, and eventually the workforce. Practice is important when kids are learning new skills. So, having a nightly homework routine enhances your child's learning. Just be sure you aren't requiring homework time at the expense of being a kid. Having time to play is just as important to a child's development as learning new material.

Hate homework? I did too until I completely switched up my third grade classroom with these weekly homework packs. They are a perfect communication between Common Core standards, math, and ELA in small half sheet packets. Your students will love doing these quick practices and the parents will thank you for not sending too much home (just enough!)

Today I’m chatting  all about my personal homework evolution and how I changed a negative into a big positive in my classroom. I have been posting a lot of photos on my Instagram and Facebook account about these changes and my (and my students) excitement over this revolution. With that, I’ve have had a lot of feedback and questions from all of you. I’m hopefully that I covered everything that you are all wondering about so let’s start from the beginning…

Having homework trouble? Pin it to save!

This is just not working anymore!

Homework. Just the word used to make me shake my head! Like most of us, we have been doing homework for the majority of our lives. Starting in elementary, middle and high school, I remember textbooks, page numbers to read/do, and thick packets of work. In college, I recall articles and textbooks to read, and papers upon papers to write. Even as a teacher, I dreaded homework. The students never did it. The parents expected and demanded it (mostly because they too have been doing homework for years and that’s just what you do in school). Then there is me, caught in the middle of this love/hate relationship with homework.

  • I love how you can teach a lesson that day and see the success when they use that skill or strategy at home in their homework.
  • I love when students DO their homework.
  • I love sending work home that is responsive and aligned to my lessons.
  • I love when we can correct our homework together and see them helping each other out with the problem set.
  • I love to see them applying their knowledge from the lesson.
  • I love rewarding them for taking their knowledge home and challenging themselves.
  • I hate the prep behind homework.
  • I hate how time consuming checking homework can be, especially because it takes away from our core learning time!
  • I hate sending home filler work to appease the parents that expect homework every night.
  • I hate that the majority of my students come in with excuses on why they didn’t complete their homework.
  • I hate that I have to keep students in from recess to do their homework because they didn’t do it the night before.
  • I hate bribing them to do their homework.
  • I hate(d) homework, who doesn’t?!

Let’s change this negative to a positive!

As you can see, there is way too much negativity up there so I knew I needed to change something. First, I decided to completely scrap everything I’ve ever done with my 3rd grade homework, and thought about the basics of what I wanted my students to do while they were home. I thought back to when I taught Kindergarten and used to give monthly HW packets from Kelly’s Kindergarten . The skills we covered in class that month were embedded within this monthly packet. Yes, it was a packet but there was a ton of flexibility for the families of my students. They could do their one page a night, double up and/or work on the go. At the end of the month, my kiddos would bring back their packets and earn stickers for completing their work. Simple. I decided to jump back to that thinking but with third grade goggles instead. I knew I wanted my students to practice reading, writing and math at home. I knew I wanted them to continue to read at home for 25 minutes a night.

They are a perfect communication between Common Core standards, math, and ELA in small half sheet packets. Your students will love doing these quick practices and the parents will thank you for not sending too much home (just enough!)

I knew I wanted the flexibility of giving a weekly packet out on Monday and not seeing it again until the following Monday (versus turning in a paper every single day for Ms. Sanchez to colle… I mean correct). I wanted the flexibility back for my families who had multiple things going on every night. I wanted families to divvy up the work they wanted to complete at home, on their own schedules. I knew I didn’t want them to spend a lot of time at home working on these because frankly they are 8 and 9 year olds who need a break too! Ultimately this is how my Weekly Packets were (re)born.

They were created on half sheets of paper, which save paper and time (2 for the price of one, anyone?). They draw the students in because they are much smaller than their old homework ways. They have a coloring option when they complete their nightly reading (who doesn’t like to color?)

What skills are covered?

Yes, these are packets. Yes, they are not individualized based on every lesson in my classroom. But they can be!

Your students will love doing these quick practices and the parents will thank you for not sending too much home (just enough!)

How do I get my students to consistently do their homework?

Each morning, we gather at the carpet for homework check. It’s quick, taking only a couple minutes, and simple. My homework checker says “Stand up if you did your reading last night”. My kiddos stand, we count, they sit back down. Next, the homework checker says “Stand up if you completed one page from your packet.” Repeat the above.

Your students will love doing these quick practices and the parents will thank you for not sending too much home (just enough!)

On Mondays, students come in and we meet for morning meeting. We quickly do our homework check for Friday’s homework (see above!). While they are unpacking for the morning, they turn in their previous weeks homework packets to my mailbox.

They are a perfect communication between Common Core standards, math, and ELA in small half sheet packets. Your students will love doing these quick practices and the parents will thank you for not sending too much home (just enough!)

With my area prepped with homework punch cards, hole punch and brag tags, I quickly go through the homework in my mailbox, paying attention to their answers. If someone left a page blank, I call their name up and go over it with them. I make a plan with them to complete the page. I call the rest of the students who have turned it in. A complete packet earns 5 punches on their HW Club Punch Cards for the five days of week and a brag tag . These few incentives are free and easy to manage within your classroom.

Prep for the teacher!

You decide what works for you. Once I’ve created these packets , you should be able to interchange them for any month you teach a certain subject. For example, we are working on Fractions in my classroom right now (found in my March Weekly Packets ), but maybe you are working on Place Value. No problem! Pull the math pages from my December Weekly Packets (where we focused on Place Value) and supplement them in for the month you need. I’ve specificity created a math and ELA frame so they could jump around. And if you need to tweak a few things here, there or even create something completely different… I’ve created a Editable Homework Packet . The weekly covers are the only things that tie to the monthly themes. You as the teacher have the flexibility you need with these packets.

They are a perfect communication between Common Core standards, math, and ELA in small half sheet packets.

Printing is simple with these half sheets. It will cut down on paper and time. Simply copy double sided with the staple option on double staple on the left. Once you are done with your copies, all you will have to do is cut them in half and pass out!

What are parents saying?

I’ve asked my parents to be honest with me in regards to the (drastic) change in homework. The great thing is that a lot of them reached out on their own to say they love the difference. They are finding the content matches with my lessons and their child’s abilities. They are also loving the flexibility these packets have during the week. I know one of my students has soccer every Monday and Wednesday, so she doubles up on Tuesday and Thursday to complete them on time. They are still getting authentic homework but with tons more flexibility.

The ultimate payoff!

I’ve seen my classroom’s attitude about homework completely change in the last couple of months since I’ve implemented these Weekly Homework Packets. I’m not getting students running up to me every morning with excuses why they didn’t do it. Lucky for me, I have the majority of my classroom doing their homework every. single. night. and best of all, they are excited about it. I don’t have students staying in for recess every day. That gives me the break I need and the freedom they need! The benefits are endless. I’m happy to say that I finally have something in place that is easy on me (prep and classroom time in mind), fun for my students (but still has them using the skills they learn in class), and satisfies the parents and their “traditional” expectations.

Alexis porter, 9 comments on homework in my third grade classroom.

I have a love/hate relationship with homework packet too. I send it home on Monday and it's due on Friday (I teach 1st). I feel that the time after school is so short and I want the students to still be able to have family time. I love how your homework packets are 1/2 page. I have all of my homework packets organized for the year but now I kind of want to make my owning 1/2 size to save paper!

Yes!! There is the best thing I've done for both my students and I. They aren't as worried by seeing a half sheet anymore compared to a full sized one. Plus, it makes coping SO easy! You should be able to make a full size sheet into 2 halves on your copier. You can find my option under "special features" and I believe it's called double image. It may look different on yours!

I recently switched to homework packets, also… and it has been such a blessing! The kids are completing assignments on a more regular basis! I love love love your punch cards! We have similar ones for our management system, but to have one for homework?! I LOVE IT! 🙂 Thanks for sharing your drastic changes!!

Best, Tiffany Shoe Laces & Sweet Faces

Thank you for stopping by, Tiffany! It's amazing how one change can make such a difference in your classroom, I'm so glad you are finding the same in your classroom! And yes, the homework punch cards are a HUGE incentive for them! 😀 Same goes for us with coffee, right? 😉

Found the clue! 🙂 Thanks for helping create this fun hunt. P.s. I love your designs. I hope to one day be able to purchase one lol

I love this hunt! 😀 I hope to work with you in the future. 😉 <3

Homework packets are a good option. My students love getting them every week. They save time and money for me. I definitely differentiate according to ability level of the individual student.

Do you have your brag tags for homework available for download? I love this idea. Thanks!

Hey there! Due to a copyright license, I did sadly have to remove them from my shop and they are no longer available.

3rd Grade Spiral Literacy Practice

Do you have third graders who are struggling with reading? There are so many literacy skills related to reading success for Grade 3 students! This post gives practical tips on the do’s and don’t of using 3rd Grade spiral literacy practice in your classroom for all students. Get ready to help your third graders grow stronger with reading.

Plus, you can grab some FREE 3rd Grade literacy printables that can be used with any reading curriculum.

What is Spiral Review?

Third graders need to develop several skills to become proficient readers.

The main categories for these reading skills are:

  • Vocabulary and Word Recognition
  • Comprehension

Even though many of these skills should be mastered in 1st and 2nd grade, upper elementary teachers must be prepared when they aren’t.

This is where spiraled review comes to the rescue!

3rd grade spiral literacy practice allows students to have on-going review to target necessary reading skills.

When you visualize a spiral 🌀 , it shows an image going round and round. This depiction also summarizes how students get on-going practice with literacy concepts they have already learned.

3rd Grade Spiral Literacy Practice Gone Wrong!

Although this sounds like a great way to help struggling readers , it has some potential downsides.

First off, using spiraled literacy should not feel like daily, monotonous drill practice.

Schools that require a certain amount of spiraled review each day run the risk of focusing more on time rather than quality of time spent.

In addition to this, spiral literacy practice benefits all third graders!

weekly homework 3rd grade

Guided reading groups for intervention practice give attention to the kids that need it most.

However, all Grade 3 kids need to retain the reading growth they have already achieved.

This allows them to transition smoothly from “learning to read” to “reading to learn.”

And finally, spiral review goes wrong when it lasts longer than 10-15 minutes per session. Unless you are using a game-style activity, students will burn out from daily lengthy worksheet practice.

Therefore, Keep–It–Simple–Sweetie! 💋 (K.I.S.S)

Now, let’s dive deeper into ways you can effectively implement spiraled activities into your 3rd grade classroom.

Incorporate Spiral Review into Your Morning Routine

The most practical way to hit the ground running with review happens at the beginning of each school day.

Once you’ve spent time community-building with students for social-emotional connection, you can assign quick 3rd grade spiral literacy practice as morning work.

weekly homework 3rd grade

An example of this would be these 3rd Grade Literacy Builder Worksheets . They can be used with any reading curriculum, and here are some of the skills they focus on:

  • Phonics review
  • Spelling rules
  • Rhyming words
  • Defining words in context
  • Finding the main idea
  • Inferencing
  • Poetry practice
  • Synonyms & Antonyms
  • Context clues…AND MORE!

Using activities specifically designed for spiral review ensures that third graders consistently revisit much needed reading and language concepts.

Plus, having worksheets that require no extra prep means you get to save time on lesson planning!

Not only this, but each worksheet has up to 5 standards-packed literacy review sections that can be completed quickly.

Include Hands-On Literacy Activities

The second thing for you to know about 3rd grade spiral literacy activities is that they can be hands-on.

Worksheets offer interesting and needed review opportunities. However, spiral review includes engaging tactile work also.

For instance, identifying homonyms in sentences influences comprehension in a major way.

3rd Grade readers need on-going exercises to tell the difference between homophones and homographs, along with knowing what the different words mean.

So, you can give students a homophone matching card game or a homophones goldfish game for additional practice.

A spiral language review like this works well as a 3rd grade literacy center or word work game that the entire class completes together.

But How Can Games Be Spiraled Review?

If you are used to spiraled literacy review in the form of worksheets, it can be challenging to embrace game-based learning as rigorous review.

Taking the homophones game ideas from above; make it an on-going monthly exercise that aligns to the season.

This does two important things for students:

  • Allow them to revisit identifying and applying homophones.
  • Makes it extra interesting since it relates to the season or time of year.

But don’t think you only have to do this with homophones and homographs!

Most reading, language, or grammar skills also work as hands-on 3rd grade spiral literacy practice.

Not only that, but combining hands-on activities with 3rd grade ELA worksheets packs a combo punch of goodness for your kiddos!

Assign Literacy Homework that Offers Spiral Practice

Does spiraled homework lead to academic success for students? This big question inspired Duke Professor Harris Cooper to conduct studies in order to find the answer.

And the results? YES, it does.

However, there was one major caveat to these results: the amount of time spent on homework needs to be appropriate based on age and grade level.

Grade 3 students should not have more than 20-30 minutes of homework.

Due to this, I strongly recommend teachers use spiral literacy homework that can be completed around 10 minutes a few nights per week.

This additional practice gives Grade 3 students that small extra boost towards reading success.

Step-by-Step Instructions on How to Introduce Spiraled Literacy Review to Students

Now that we’ve looked at ways to implement 3rd grade spiral literacy practice in your classroom, let’s look at some steps to introducing it.

  • As the name suggests, any activity you use needs to be review . You want to practice skills your students have already learned. So, the first step is to take assessments on what your 3rd graders know. If you already have your students’ standardized test results, use the data from those to lesson plan your spiral review.
  • Then complete the first sheet or game with students. This allows you to model your expectations and show students how it’s done.
  • Continue to monitor their progress, as you increase the challenge level slightly each week/ month/ grading period. Scaffolding the challenge in this way keeps students motivated to improve as they review.

These are the basic steps to having spiraled practice with literacy. Put these steps on repeat throughout the school year and you will be amazed at how much your students retain!

If you need specific strategies to help struggling readers, these blog posts have several tips for you:

  • Helping Kids Who Are Struggling with Reading

How is Spiral Literacy Review Different from Daily Grammar Practice?

Since ELA includes reading, writing, language skills, and grammar–it feels overwhelming trying to include daily practice for all of it.

Just to be clear, literacy includes grammar, but they are not synonyms.

Daily grammar practice benefits 3rd graders just like spiral literacy review. Yet, the major difference is that literacy for Grade 3 should strengthen these reading skills:

  • Decoding–Phonemic Awareness

Remember these from earlier? They are the essential ingredients to reading success.

Whereas grammar focuses on things like punctuation, spelling, and capitalization rules.

If your spiraled curriculum does not include all of the reading skills or any grammar practice, then supplement with standards-aligned worksheets or literacy centers like the ones mentioned above.

How Do Fit All This Into My Literacy Block?

Trying to complete all of these activities every day stresses out teachers and students! So, here’s the good news: you DON’T have to do it all every single day.

You also do not have to cram every activity into your literacy block, especially if you teach in a self-contained 3rd grade classroom.

For example, completing spiral worksheets for morning work or assigning them as homework counts.

Having engaging literacy practice during small group stations or guided reading also counts.

In addition to this, you can combine Math and Literacy to give students even more practice with both subject areas.

The books on this list offer great examples of math picture books for 3rd grade readers.
