Wk 4 (6-13th Feb) HOMEWORK

We have been looking at reasons for and against doing homework as part of our Language Arts work.

Your job is to come up with a new idea/ new way of doing homework and describe or explain it in your post. It MUST help you learn or revise something.It must be something ALL students can do. I will look at your ideas very seriously and if I think they are suitable I will choose YOUR NEW HOMEWORK IDEA and trial it as part of our class homework. The competition is on!

    I think we should have homework just like we are having right now. That is because in the week days we all have ASA’s. So on Saturday and Sunday we have time to do some of our homework. There are lots of projects that we have to do like the contract. We can’t do these in week days because we have ASA’s. In the weekend we can also finish the homework and so we won’t have any homework the whole week. This is just how we should get homework.

      I agree on the reason that we should have homework, but l am not really sure that we are going to do the same homework in the future. So, I recommend that we can do all of our homework on the computer.

      I do not agree with you Yash because on the future it will just that old boring homework. But if you mean the contract I definitely agree. For example when child gets normal original homework you just get bored with homework right away. Child needs a fun, creative homework

    I think that we should have different spelling homework.There might be a lot of words that you already know. If you know all the words or if the pattern is so easy you might get bored. You could finish it in a few minutes.It would’t help you memorise the words if you already know them. If there were new words that we didn’t know, we might learn new words.Also, on Thursday, we could take spelling tests to make sure we’ve memorised them as a part of our homework.That way, we can easily learn a lot of new words.

    l think we should do all the homework on our computer. Sometimes we can not bring our paper or you can delete the mistake on the computer. But we can not erase our mistake on our paper if we used pan or other sort of staff that we can’t erase. So l strongly recommend for children doing homework on computer. And if you are doing your work on your sheet, and you want to take some notes, your only choice is to take the notes on your sheet.(if you don’t have your note book in-front of you); But if you are on a your computer, you can just save it as an Word or others. So I think we should do homework on computer.

      I disagree Jonathan. Every student has different computers and programs so they can’t do the same thing. If we are doing a story or thing on a program every one mabye don’t have the program. the internet is mabye not good home so they cant do the homework. I Think it’s better then with paper and pen.

    I also think that we should do homework on computer. We have to get used to computer so that we can be ready for middle school. Also if we have papers, papers have a very high chance of losing it. But files, it is online so the chance of not working is very low. Also writing stuff in computer is way more faster. When you write it on paper and you wrote something wrong, you need to get a eraser and erase it. But computer, you just simply press delete. So I think we should do homework on computer.

    I agree with you Annie. Their could be a lot of words that you already know. If you know words that are on the sheet, what’s the point? It is just wasting time. And if you know the words and you take a spelling test, you would probably get most of it right.

    I disagree with you Yash. I think that we should use computers like Jonathan suggested. I think the homework we have is fun, but most peoples enjoy using computers. So, doing homework on the computer probably will be more fun. And we also have to be used to using computers for middle school.

    I think we should do homework in computer. In middle school we would do work with computer most of the time, so we need to get use to it. If we do it with papers, we can lose and sometimes there’s too much work so we can’t find the sheets. If we do it in computers, we have a less chance of losing. Also the teachers could easily read the work because some would have bad handwriting. We could also organize the works easily. Also we could write fast and it would help us for middle school. We could practice more typing when we do our homework.

    I think for homeworks, we should do creative things with our hand,
    and sometimes on computers too. Doing creative things help our
    brains. Also when you do creative things you move your hand alot
    which avoids dementia. We should also do homeworks on
    computers because we’ll have to use computers alot in six
    grade. It also helps us practice typing. But we shouldn’t do too much
    computer work because it may make our eye sites bad. I really liked the
    contract project from last week’s homework.

    It would be fun to do like our own homework competition, like what we are having right now. So you give us a subject we should make a competition on, and at the end of the week, we judge. You can choose how you can present it to the class, and it is almost similar to the contract. So you can make 3D model or a computer presentation for homework. You can make short videos, mini buildings,pictures and one thing you will get… a happy teacher. By that I mean Ms.Frolchenko will enjoy marking homework. Math would just be IXL.

    I agree with Chloe, we should do creative stuff witch also includes computers. As it improves our I.T skills we can be ready for middle school, and to be more creative after the fun stuff. But I still think that we shouldn’t do paper homework a lot because it is the most boring form of homework. But it would be nice to do some physical homework.

    I think we should have games. Because that makes your brane think well. And you can have math games and languige art games in all sorts of subject. We can also make tralers and movies with help of iMovie. Because students and teachers bouth like it. In math we could chose if we want to have math sheats or go to IXL math.

    I think for homework we should make a summary about one of your favorite topic or a topic you are curious on. For example (Milky Way). You find a website then you read it. After your done reading it you summarize the info. It will help us on research, reading, and summarizing. It will be fun because you will be using technology.

    Homework shouldn’t be a burden or something you hate even though most homework is one if not both of these two things. I think that if we did something involving technology, research, writing and other skills, us kids would enjoy homework a lot more. For example, we could do an imovie/garageband project, which we could choose whatever topic you want and do it. But there’s a catch to that. No more other homework (spelling, math etc.)

    I think we should do differnt homework. Like take a math sheet home every 2nd day. Do 20-30 mintues reading. Also 10 minutes typing 4 days. Also no homework on Fridays. 1 day of the week we get a quiz home, Like picking A. B. C. D. And the test has to be on a spesfic chapter we reseacrh on at home. Ex: (Child Soilders). So you know you’ve done your homework. This Is what I Think we should do for homework.

    I think we should do the homework on the computer. Some people like doing homework on the computer and like to be on the computer. Because if you forget to bring your homework it’s easier to just email it to you. It’s also fun to be touch typing and it’s good to learn to do homework on the computers because we are going to middle school next year. Sometimes you are more relaxed when you are doing things on the computer. That’s why I think we should do homework on the computer

      I don’t think it’s because it is easy. I think they would like to do it on the computer because it’s more fun using the computer then on the regular old paper.

    I think we should do our homework on our computer because have to get ready for middle school show and in middle school we use our computer to do most of our homework. We should also do creative things like our “cool contract” because the student will try their best to make good work because it is fun. Teachers will enjoy marking our homework because it is good work. It will not waste anyones time and we will all be able to more fun activities at home. I personally think the homework we have is good but in my opinion not my favorite. Teachers and principals and governments should give more freedom to the students!!!!!!! These are my thought about our homework.

    I think that we should have the same homework as middle school. It is good that people just need to worry about the homework of the day instead of the whole weeks homework. Students get stressed when they need to worry about the whole weeks homework but when you have like middle school you’re not so stressed because then you just need to concentrate on the homework of the day. For ex: you can have maths on Mondays ,spelling on Tuesday, touchtyping and hfw on Wednesday and comments on Thursday. And the teatcher has more time to correct the homework. Then you prepare for middle school.
