Homework Banners adapted for multiple classes

Happy Saturday! 
It's time to Spark Motivation with Joanne at Head Over Heels for Teaching. 

Last month Joanne, posted about her Homework Pennants. I liked this idea, A LOT. Homework is such a sore subject around here. It is NOT going away, so I have to get them motivated. And because Joanne is so awesome, all I had to do to get a copy was leave a comment! 

I teach six classes. How could I make this work? 

Here's my plan. 
I made six different colored homework banners. I also made a matching circle for each class period. 

So far, we have two classes with an "H".

 The others are ready and waiting....

The first class to reach it gets a free week of homework. 
They are pretty excited about that possibility. 

Joanne is GREAT and I use lots of her ideas in my classroom. 

Don't forget about her giveaway along with Holly at Fourth Grade Flipper. It's day 10!

  4. Awww, you're so sweet Elizabeth! I'm so glad your students are excited about this incentive! I love the different colors for different classes-so clever! I can't wait to hear an update on how they do! I bet seeing the other classes will make an additional incentive and hopefully spark some competition to want to beat each other! Thanks for sharing and linking up my friend!
