First, my Fiction Friday link up with Amanda at The Teaching Thief is about a book that is sure to get your students' attention.
Trevor Romain knows how horrible homework can be, and kids will see this right away as they page through this book, grin at the cartoons, and smile at Trevor's funny insights.
Meanwhile, they'll discover valuable truths and pointers about homework: “People who say homework is a waste of time don't know what they are talking about.” “The best way to get your homework done without feeling sick every time you see it is to just do it.”
Now, my second link up is with Fun in Room 4B for the Fabulous Find Friday party.

I was thinking more about the homework rewards when I got home and I decided to make a sign to post in the classroom for noting who received the awards. I could just imagine myself handing out the reward, then forgetting who got it, and later
harassing tquestioning that student about not having their homework in. So I made a sign to help my aging memory. I also made some additional homework reward sheets. They look like this:
