Tips on Using First Grade Homework Worksheets

1. Make sure worksheets can be successfully completed without any extra resources and instructions.

2. Assign worksheets that reinforce important skills you're teaching in the classroom. It's okay to give fun pages; just make sure that pages aren't "busy work."

3. Don't overdo it! Just give 1-2 worksheets at a time, and not every day of the week.

4. Expect students to bring their completed pages back to school in a timely manner. Make it clear when the paper is due back on your desk. Write that date on the page, if possible.

5. Reinforce responsible behavior with a sticker, words of praise, or some other recognition.
