This is The Homework Hangout! ("Where all the cool homework comes to unwind.") Every student in my class is assigned a number. Their number is tied to their status alphabetically, making it easier for me to track, record grades, organize papers, etc. As a part of their morning routine, students hand in their homework from the previous night here. Their workbooks go in the appropriate bin and any worksheets that get assigned go into their designated pocket.

As the students finish up their morning work, part of MY morning routine is to check their homework. I keep a clipboard hanging in this area of the classroom with our Homework Tracker on it.(You can see it hanging there to the right!)
I should also note that this Homework Tracker is a NECESSITY when completing the students' Friday Folders too! It gives me a quick visual as to what was completed for the week. (I put checks for a completed assignments, circles for incomplete assignments, write "Oops" in the box if they used their "Oops!" card, and, occasionally, write a 1/2 in a box if something is only half done!)
How to you "do" homework?!
