About This Daily Classroom
Each week Homework
Hotline will suggest homework assignments aimed at grades
K-1 and 2-3. Homework Hotline was written by Buzz Eyler, Director
of Educational Technology at the Orcutt School District ( CA) and a former Teachers Network
the Homework Hotline Directory
This week the homework will center on family traditions activities. The activities are appropriate for K-3, except as noted. Feel free to copy, cut, and paste the assignments into your own word processor for sending home (or print this page).
List three annual events your family celebrates. Write or dictate a list of foods which are served during these events at your home.
Interview a family member who does not live with you about his/her favorite tradition. Write or dictate what they say. Bring it to school to read to the class.
Write or dictate about one tradition that your family does. Be ready to share it with the class tomorrow.
Think of a tradition that your family does not now do, but which you would like to see happen over and over in your family. Write or dictate about this new tradition. Think of such questions as:
Who would be involved? Where would it happen? What would you need to get that you don't have now?
