Spiral Math Homework 4th Grade

My Math Homework

Every once in a while, an idea pops into my head out of necessity for something better.  Years and years ago, I was actually teaching 3rd grade at the time, I became fed up with the lack of repetition in my math program.  There just wasn't enough review built in for the kids to grasp anything.  I would teach a concept once and move on.  Done and done.  The problem was, the kids just didn't get it.

After scouring the internet, reading tons of books, and using my own bag of tricks, Calendarwas born.  And, if you follow my blog, you know I LOVE Calendar.  But it just wasn't enough.  The kids needed more practice then even Calendar could provide.  Word problems, higher level computation....

So I decided that their homework was what needed to change.  I took a complete departure from everyone at my school and created a spiral homework.  It was 10 problems a day, not of what we just learned, but of EVERYTHING that we learned. The kids were constantly seeing the same style problem over and over and over.  Their skills were always being refreshed....and it worked like MAGIC!

So when I moved to 4th, and then to 5th, I took this style homework with me.  And every year I create sheets like this, my students math scores soar.  Because nothing is being forgotten, the kids are always practicing those basic skills they need.   I can honestly say that because of this homework (and Calendar) if I don't get to a lesson in math that day...I STILL FEEL OK!  I know all of the standards are covered and I simply DO NOT EVER stress about math.  Ever.

Doing homework this way has the added bonus of freeing up some time to do all of those concept lessons that I like to do.   I get the kids thinking about math processes, instead of always worrying about the rote memory of it all.   It really is amazing what one little 10 problem page can do.

However, doing the work isn't enough.  The key to this is that every.single.day, without fail, we go over the homework.  I have it worked into my math block (just 10 minutes) to go over the problems.  I don't teach during this time, I just show the students how to do the work, with their help at times, on the ELMO and then they take it home to study for later.  This review of the problems is what makes this homework better than anything I have done before.  If they kids didn't get it at home the night before, they get it when we go over it.  Then, when they see a similar problem on a homework that week (or the next or the next) they *do* get it.

Another thing I add into my week are weekly spiral quizzes.  These are where I get my data for small groups, intervention, and mastery from.  Here is the form I use to break all the information down...and the post explaining it. It is also test prep (and you all know how I love test prep).  

I really just love this whole part of my classroom.  I think...KNOW it works and it helps me room to run so smoothly.

I know at this point you are probably sold (I seriously love this...it is my favorite thing I have ever created. Ever.  Simply because of the value it holds in my classroom.)  If you are interested in having it in your own room, I have sets for 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade. 

I realize this isn't super cheap, but it is worth every.single.penny that you spend.  I honestly and truly believe that.  It will help you to run your math block smoothly and keep you on target. (oh and it comes with an answer key too :)

So there you have it....my sales pitch ;)  How do you structure your math homework?

Using This Spiral Math Resource as HOMEWORK!
Give each student a homework sheet on Monday. They will complete one column each night (Monday through Thursday). You can choose to print the "Show Your Work" page on the back or have your students show their work in a "homework notebook". At the beginning of class each day, I like to take about 5-8 minutes to quickly review the previous night's homework and clarify any questions my students may have. Students use the "My Progress" section to keep track of how they are doing and it helps hold them accountable for their own learning. My students value this time and use it to ask great questions because they know they will see similar problems on the next night's homework. See my "Spiral Math Assessments" section below to see how I assess my students each week on the same skills!

Using This Spiral Math Resource as MORNING WORK!
Each morning, students complete just one column (Monday through Thursday). Before beginning the day, I take about 5-8 minutes to review that day's work. This gives students time to monitor their own progress and to ask questions. On Friday, I like to give a mini review quiz. This is the perfect time to assess your students and see where they still need help. Read below to learn about my "Spiral Math Assessments" that are PERFECT for Fridays.

Using this resource with Spiral Math Assessments
I highly recommend using this spiral math resource with my spiral weekly math assessments. They are both directly aligned with each other and work together to help reinforce and assess math concepts all year. If your goal is to keep math standards fresh without having to spend a lot of time reteaching and reviewing, this system is for you.
