Homework and Homework Club 101

January 8, 2022 by Jill Shafer

homework club frankston

Hello, friend!  Let’s talk about homework club and what it looks like in our classroom.

I have used THIS with students in grades three through five but, like with anything, tweak it to meet the needs of your kids .

Disclaimer to start: I’m not here to argue for or against homework.  We have a district responsibility and understanding that homework is a component of the day and not to exceed a certain length of time.  For us, it’s ten minutes per grade level so by fifth grade, no student should be spending more than 50 minutes on homework each evening.

I will, obviously, modify homework for students, as well as provide time in class for homework completion.

Homework is never anything new; it is always review and for us, it’s very predictable, which I’ll share below.

For our room, here’s what is assigned:

-Reading Plus (a program used district-wide): Our fifth graders are responsible for completing three SRs and three RA assignments each week.  They can work at their own pace but we HIGHLY encourage doing at least one each evening.  This is OFTEN done in class but takes anywhere from five (the vocabulary assignments) to twenty minutes.

-Language: There is either a brief spelling activity (first semester) or Wordly Wise activity (second semester). This should take about ten minutes.

-Math: Students are assigned 6-10 review problems, which come straight from their workbooks.  This is usually content that was taught in class about a week ago.  We are constantly spiraling to review.  Once a week, students are asked to do only Jiji, another district-wide math program.  They do this in lieu of a workbook page that night.  Regardless, it takes about twenty minutes.

Okay!  So with that said, homework is always on our May Do board, meaning that if all their other assignments are completed, they can go ahead and work on their homework.  They may not know the math workbook page that night but they can always do Reading Plus, Jiji, or Wordly Wise.

We fill out our planners every afternoon, right before we clean up to go home (our district provides students in grades three through five with the same planners and I model it every single day under the document camera).

I am well aware that students go home to varying levels of parental support and I do not ever want a child to leave feeling like the homework is unattainable.  I am always available to help, whether that’s checking in after-school or being available before school.

Additionally, math in our room is never graded for correctness.  Student get their point if it was completed and effort was shown.  After our math warm up, we go over answers and students will ask for certain problems to be worked out together.

homework club frankston

I have homework checkers (two students) that go around during math and star the page if work is shown and the problems are completed.

For Reading Plus, spelling/Wordly Wise, and Jiji (ST Math), I do not check for completion until Friday morning. This gives students an opportunity to practice daily habits (math workbook) with time management throughout the week (reading and vocabulary).

Now, on Friday, if all assignments have been completed, this is where the homework club kicks in.

During soft starts (you can read more about that HERE ), I call students up.  ALL students get called up one by one.  We either go over missing assignments OR they get a punch for their card.

These cards are kept in pencil boxes and treated very seriously.

homework club frankston

The resource contains so many different options but I like to use these, pictured.  In order to get a punch (I have some fun ones in HERE ), all assignments must be done.

Missing one or two?  It’s okay.  We talk a lot about the reasons why it might have happened, what we can do next time, or how we can reach out for help if needed.

Not all kids get their cards punched every week and that’s okay.

We celebrate homework club every six weeks.  This gives kids a chance to “catch up” if they missed something one week.

Coming to homework club means they have their card with all their punches and they’re ready to celebrate!

Homework club can look a hundred different ways and I try to switch it up so that it stays exciting and motivating.

homework club frankston

Here are some ideas we’ve done in the past:

-Eat lunch with the teacher

-Muffins/breakfast before school

-Trade your homework club card for a homework pass

-Lunchtime movie or craft (they LOVE the crafts and I’m always looking for inexpensive ideas on Pinterest)

-Board game tournament after school or at lunch

-Special games at recess (I’ll get out THESE things and they’ll play together)

-Popsicles after school

-Trade your homework club card for a small surprise (they love fidgets, puzzle erasers, play dough cans, slime, fun pencils; I have a ton in HERE )

You really can modify it to work for YOU and your class but it’s another little layer of motivation.  It also gives me an opportunity to talk to kids about time management skills.  My kids leave elementary school and head off to middle school, which is a new ballgame with changing classes and having multiple teachers.

So, I try to keep homework doable and relevant, accessible and meaningful.  Homework club is just a little bonus!

Hi Jill! Thanks for the blog on homework. I’ve been wanting to spruce up my program, and I even looked for homework ideas on here last summer. I do similar stuff with math review, spelling, and book talk prep. I do have a question… what kind of planner do you use? I think I’ll start using planners next year, but I wonder if there are really simple, cheap ones out there. Also, have you had kids lose their planners? Right now, we use homework folders, and I have three kids who are always misplacing their folders and needing a new one. Those repeat offenders are working on responsibility and organization 🙂 and they’ll get it eventually. Thanks again for all of the great ideas. I may even implement a homework club soon! Andie

Senior School News

Welcome back.

Welcome back to all students and staff.  I hope you had a pleasant, relaxing and productive holiday and had a chance to ‘recharge the batteries’ ready for what will be a very important term.  

These are very challenging and unique times and we have seen a mixture of both on site and remote learning for our Senior School students this term.  We were excited to commence the term with all Senior School classes, both VCE and VCAL on site.  Unfortunately, on July 16 our Senior School students returned to remote learning, after the announcement by the Premier acting on the advice of the Chief Health Officer.

I would like to commend and congratulate our students on their exemplary approach to their learning and studies (both on site and remotely).  Teachers have been full of praise and admiration of our students’ work ethic and motivation during these difficult times.  I would like to sincerely thank our teachers for their hard work and dedication in providing a continuity of learning for our Senior School students.

Due to the COVID-19 lockdown the Year 12 Formal has been rescheduled to Friday 10 September.   Please see COMPASS for further details.

At this stage we are still awaiting information from the VCAA (Victorian Curriculum and Assessment Authority) on the GAT (General Achievement Test) taking place on Thursday 29 July.   Once we have official confirmation, parents and students will be notified. 

SEMESTER ONE REPORTS

End of semester reports were available to parents to view via Compass over the school holiday break.  It is important for parents to read through and discuss the report with their child and devise and implement strategies together to further improve student learning outcomes.  PSTC (Parent Student Teacher Conferences) for Years 7-12 will be held on Wednesday 8 September.

YEAR 11 AND YEAR 12 COURSE SELECTION 2022

Year 10 and Year 11 students have been provided with information concerning 2022 course selections.  This can be a daunting yet exciting process where students begin to make decisions that will help steer their future pathway.  Thank you to Mrs Sharon Bourne , our Careers Practitioner, who has conducted presentations for our Year 10 students to introduce them to the Senior School course selection process. 

Year 11 (2021) Course Counselling days are:

Year 11 into 12 Course Counselling

Day 1 - Wednesday 21 July

Day 2 - Thursday 22 July

(will be held remotely via Teams due to current COVID-19 restrictions) 

Year 10 (2021) Course Counselling days are:

Year 10 into 11 Course Counselling

Day 1 - Tuesday 3 August

Day 2 - Thursday 5 August

Day 3 - Wednesday 11August  

If students or parents have any enquiries, you are most welcome to contact the Year 11 Coordinators (Mrs Ellen D’Ambra and Mr Paul Don), the Year 12 Coordinators (Ms Carla Caminiti and Mr Joel Treyvaud) or the Careers Practitioner (Mrs Sharon Bourne) or myself.

VTAC SELECTIONS 2022

This term Year 12 students begin the important process of preparing their VTAC (Victorian Tertiary Admission Centre) selections for next year.  Information, guidance and assistance will be available in iSupport sessions over the next few weeks and from Mrs Sharon Bourne.  A VTAC Parent Information Night will be held 7.00pm Monday 16 August in the Senior School Presentation Area.

MONASH SCHOLARS PROGRAM – CLASS OF 2021 – 2023

Congratulations to Year 10 students Shannon Loader, Alexandra Shacklock and Hayden van Kuyk who have been accepted into the Monash Scholars Program .

homework club frankston

The nominations were based on these students’ applications, academic ability, leadership qualities and contribution to school and community life.  The benefits of the Monash Scholars Program include:  enhanced learning, exploring career ambitions, defining personal aspirations, preparation for university life and building networks with other high-achieving students.  Congratulations and well done.

YEAR 12 END OF YEAR EXAMS – SEPTEMBER HOLIDAYS 

Frankston High School is conducting Year 12 end of year exams during the September holidays.

The exams will commence on Thursday 23 September and will conclude on Friday 1 October. 

The advantages of this practice are clear including:  ensuring students utilise their September holidays for revision; opportunities for our students to maximise their success/results; maximising class revision time in Term 4 where teachers can address areas of concern in student performance and exam technique and it provides opportunities for students to hone exam techniques and practices.

It is our expectation that Year 12 students would devote the third term holiday period to revision and study in preparation for these examinations and the final VCAA examinations.  These examinations will be conducted under VCAA and Frankston High School guidelines. Final examination timetables will be distributed next term.  These exams are compulsory and full school uniform is required.

STUDENTS DRIVING TO SCHOOL

Students who drive to school are reminded that they must complete a consent form (which is available from the Senior School Office) and attach a photocopy of their driver’s licence.

Students are not permitted to park in the school grounds and hence, must ensure that they follow local parking restrictions on nearby roads.  Students should also be aware that they must not park too close to the pedestrian crossings or driveways, particularly the entrance and exit to the Senior Campus.

What Is Homework Club?

Homework club is an after school club for students to complete homework/school work. Students report to a specific classroom and are supervised by a teacher. The teacher will offer assistance and check on students to make sure they are completing school work. The length of homework club will vary by school but usually lasts for about an hour after the school day ends. 

Who Is Homework Club For?

Homework club if for students that struggle to complete school work and homework. 

Students that attend homework club benefit from a quiet place to complete work after school. 

Homework club is usually available to all students but often students with a 504 or an IEP will get first consideration.

In my school we have limited spaces in homework club so it’s up to us, the teachers, to choose students that will benefit from it the most.

If you need a description of what homework is then I answered that in this article .

homework club frankston

How Often Is Homework Club?

How often a school has homework club really depends on the school and the district. 

First of all not all schools have the means to offer homework club to students.

Because the teacher that supervises the students in homework club needs to be compensated and some schools don’t have the money to pay them. 

For schools that do have the money to pay a teacher to supervise homework club they may offer homework club every day or only a few days a week. 

The middle school I work at offers our students homework club two days a week. 

Is Homework Club Effective?

Whether or not homework club is effective depends on two things: the teacher supervising and the students. 

If the supervisor engages with the students and sets expectations for work completion then the club can have an impact.  

However, if the supervising teacher is not engaged then the students will not get as much work done. 

In my experiences I have seen homework as beneficial to students but have also had students that attend it and it doesn’t seem to impact their grade or learning at all.

Often the students that are in homework club are students that struggle with work completion and organization.

This is why the teacher that supervises them really needs to have them set daily or weekly goals to ensure that work completion is taking place.

How to Set Up a Homework Club

Hero image

Written by Alison Smith

Do you have students in your class who fail to complete their homework on a regular basis?

Homework is a hot topic. It can be time-consuming for both students and teachers. Increasingly, there’s a divide between those who believe that homework plays an important part in learning and those who suggest the time would be better spent playing outdoors, with family and developing relationships.

homework club frankston

Whatever your personal viewpoint is, you may be tied to the homework policy of your school. So, first and foremost, if you haven’t already done so, make reading your school homework policy a priority.

Next, I would like to offer one piece of advice…

Communicate about homework and communicate well. Communicate clearly with students, parents, guardians and teaching partners. Avoid homework surprises at all costs.

Use our  Editable Homework Information Sheet   to communicate effectively. It’s a good idea to update this information every term to stay on top of changes and to keep parents up to date with any new additions.

What Makes Homework Meaningful?

homework club frankston

Homework tasks should be meaningful. Worthwhile homework is more likely to engage your students and may lead to more involvement in class . Meaningful homework tasks may take a little more time to prepare but believe me, it’s worth it. Before you set a homework task, you might like to consider whether the task:

  • has a clear purpose – to practise, check understanding or apply knowledge and skills
  • provides an opportunity to review, practise and develop skills they already know
  • provides students with an opportunity to do something they enjoy
  • enables students to relate learning with the real world
  • provides students with an opportunity to experience success and some degree of independence
  • provides students with the opportunity to be critical thinkers.

Homework Red Flags

homework club frankston

For many students, homework is stressful. For many busy families, it’s hard to find the time, space and energy to fit homework into an already jam-packed daily schedule. For some, home life can often be chaotic, loud and full of distractions.

If you have students in your class who are repeatedly failing to complete homework, take the time to consider how your school community can support students and parents.

What is a Homework Club?

homework club frankston

A homework club is a safe, supportive and productive student meetup out of school hours to assist students in completing their homework. Homework clubs provide vital support for children who do not otherwise have the help that they need.

Homework clubs can provide:

  • a safe, quiet and calm space for students to concentrate
  • a supportive environment
  • one to one or small group support
  • a chance to share knowledge
  • an opportunity to build relationships
  • an opportunity to develop good work habits and a positive attitude towards learning
  • the chance to develop skills involved in becoming an independent learner.

How to Set up a Homework Club

homework club frankston

Here are a few tips to get you started:

  • Decide who – Start small. Identify a small group of students who need support with completing homework. Follow the protocol for contacting parents and obtaining their permission.
  • Decide  what – Plan what activities will be included. You might like to go with a simple plan such as  snack, active learning game, class homework, chill out time.
  • Decide where – Choose a suitable venue. Good options include the school library, a classroom, or a shady outdoor space (my favourite option). Complete a risk assessment.
  • Decide when – Start with once a week. Choose an afternoon when you usually stay back after school. Check that your time slot does not clash with other popular extracurricular clubs.
  • Decide why?  – Decide on the purpose of your homework club. Is it to develop good work habits, provide a calm productive workspace or to improve academic results?

Tips for Leading a Homework Club

Proud Peacocks Classrooom Theme Pack

Leading a homework club requires a certain amount of organisation just like everything else. Here are a few tips and ideas to get you started:

  • Make sure that your students have a healthy snack and a water break before beginning the session. Don’t forget you!
  • Break your homework club session into 4 short intervals : active game, class homework, fast finisher and chill out time .
  • Play an Active Game to let off steam and build positive relationships.
  • Have a supply of spare pens, pencils and other stationery items.
  • Have enough adult support for the number of students in your group.
  • Establish clear expectations for conduct and work standards.

Being Ready to Learn at Homework Club

homework club frankston

Having clear rules and expectations for homework club is critical. Without rules and regulations, you may find that students think of homework club as the ultimate playdate. Why not use our brand new  Behaviour Learning Ladder – Vertical Chart ?

One way to visually keep track of your students’ behaviour is to create a behaviour learning ladder for homework club. A behaviour learning ladder is a great visual reminder for you and the students and includes a step by step warning system for your students.

When you are sharing your expectations, be sure to include areas such as punctuality, commitment, work standards, bringing homework and respecting the needs of others.

For more information on how to set up and use a behavior learning ladder read Holly’s brilliant blog  Classroom Management | How to Use a Behaviour Learning Ladder .

Start Homework Club with an Active Learning Game

homework club frankston

Don’t forget that after a busy day at school, kids need to be kids. Make sure that the students who attend homework club have a brain break and a chance to play before they are expected to focus and concentrate.

homework club frankston

Our  Active Learning Resource Pack  is a brilliant resource pack that includes 15 active games to play as the perfect brain break before or during homework club. Active games promote fun, active ways of revising learning and are perfect for small groups.

Stock Up on Learning Tools for Homework Club

homework club frankston

Get set up with learning tools to encourage independent learning. As a starting point, I used:

  • Emoji – Numbers 1 to 100 Chart
  • Rainbow Numbers Poster
  • Multiplication Facts 1-12 – 4 Per Page
  • Phonics Flashcards and Progress Tracker – Motorbike Theme .

Fast Finisher Activities

Stock up on fast finisher activities to avoid one or two students disrupting the calm. Check out the 88 teaching resource in our Fast Finisher Activities Collection  to prepare for any situation.

Homework clubs can make a huge difference to the school lives of students who find completing homework a challenge.

You are an exceptional being because you go the extra mile and do exceptional things.

Take the time to consider the possibility of initiating a homework club. Perhaps, all you have to do is suggest the idea, work out the who, what, where, when and why and find the right team to run the show.

How to Set Up a Homework Club

homework club frankston

Homework clubs can be a fantastic way for students to get together, help each other, and stay motivated to complete their school assignments. If you’re considering setting up a homework club, here are some steps to guide you through the process.

 Define the Purpose and Goals

Before you start a homework club, it’s important to determine why you’re starting it and what you hope to achieve. Do you want to provide a quiet space for individual study, or are you aiming for collaborative learning where students help each other? Setting clear goals will help guide the structure of your club.

 Choose a Location

A suitable location is critical. This place should be quiet, have enough space, and be easily accessible to students. Libraries, community centers, or empty classrooms are excellent places as they provide a formal atmosphere conducive to studying.

 Set a Schedule

Decide on the days and times that the homework club will meet. It’s important to consider when students are most likely to attend — after school or in the evening. Be consistent with the timing so that students can build it into their routine.

 Gather Materials

Make sure you have all the materials necessary for effective studying: textbooks, reference books, stationary supplies like pens and paper, computers with internet access if possible, printer/scanner facilities, etc.

 Establish Rules and Structure

Creating a set of rules helps to maintain order and focus within the group. For instance, settle on rules regarding noise levels, toy usage during club time (like phones), or bringing snacks. Additionally, decide how the time will be structured—whether there’ll be a quick briefing at the start of each session or if students break off into groups.

 Recruit Members

You’ll need to promote your homework club to gather members. You can do this by creating flyers and posters to advertise around your school or local community centers. You could also use social media or word-of-mouth to get the word out there.

 Find Supervision

Having an adult supervisor like a teacher or parent can help oversee the club activities. This person can provide homework help if needed or mediate any disruptions that arise during study time.

 Secure Funding if Necessary

If you require funds for materials or snacks, look into potential sponsorships from local businesses or educational grants available in your area that support after-school programs.

 Monitor Progress and Solicit Feedback

It’s important to keep track of how well the homework club is meeting its intended goals. Ask for regular feedback from members and adjust your strategies accordingly. This ensures that the club remains effective and continues to meet student needs.

With careful planning and management, a homework club can be an invaluable resource that fosters community support among students as they work towards academic success.

READ REVIEW

THE MOSCOW CLUB

by Joseph Finder ‧ RELEASE DATE: Feb. 1, 1990

Everything you always knew about the Soviet Union is wrong. Lenin was poisoned by Stalin's order; before he died he drafted a letter condemning the USSR as proof of communism's failure; and the obligatory KGB head who now wants to depose Gorbachev is a mole placed years before by a group of CIA adventurers--in this overblown, entertaining first novel by Kremlin-watcher Finder (Red Carpet, 1983). Soon after Charlie Stone, a patrician CIA analyst whose father did time in the McCarthy days for passing information to the Soviets, first hears about the ""Lenin Testament,"" he becomes convinced that knowing what happened to the letter in 1953 will help clear his father; so even though he's warned off by both Alfred Stone and well-connected godfather Winthrop Lehman, he lures his beautiful, brainy TV newscaster wife, Charlotte Harper, back from separation to help him rifle Lehman's secret files. The files disclose red-hot information about the trail of the letter (which would undermine the entire basis for the Soviet Union if made public) and also ignite a firestorm of murders--his father, his boss, everybody who has any knowledge of the letter's contents or existence. While Stone races from Boston to Washington to Chicago to Paris dodging the police and CIA-financed KGB assassins (touching evidence of warmer superpower relations), and while Finder works like a beaver to emphasize how important this all is (""This was it. At last, after all these decades""), that KGB head is laying a false trail of terrorist violence in Moscow in preparation for his plan to blow up both Gorbachev and a visiting US delegation headed by the President--and to blame the whole plot on the CIA. Hyperbolic and overscaled--but compulsively readable: The elaborate links between the family history of Finder's man-on-the-run and the history of Soviet Russia turn Stone into a think-tank Rambo--an irresistible figure of unbridled fantasy--and his adventures into an escapist knockout.
