Weekly Homework + FREEBIE



I wanted to share with you my how I setup my class homework & parent reminder sheets. I created my background layout in PowerPoint {LOVE, by the way} and saved it as a .jpg file. This allowed me to open it in Word at school and type into text boxes on top of the picture file. Since none of my personal graphics are on my work computer, I had to do it this way in order to edit it at school.

Here's what my homework contract looks like for next week:
Fonts I used: 
"My Own Topher" {teacher name}
"MTF Jumpin' Jack" {sub sections}
"HelloFirstie" {text boxes}

You can grab your own editable copy if you like it!
I know the year has already begun, but it's never too late for a makeover, right?
I have 2 different versions for you- one with a spot for vocabulary and one without.
Just use your favorite font and type into the text boxes that are already placed on the file.
Both files are Word documents, not sure what kind of trouble MAC users may run into with this file.
Click on the picture and download and save.
Whatcha think? Helpful?

Enjoy your Saturday ya'll!

  3. Thanks so much. The downloads seem to have part of the outside line edge of the frame on the bottom right corner missing. Is it just me and have I somehow deleted a section? Just the outside edge on the frame is missing.

    Thanks for sharing!

  4. Kim - This is GREAT! Love how clean and to the point it is (and, of course, adorable!) Thanks for sharing!

    I'm cracking up - you were leaving me a comment as I was leaving YOU this comment! My phone beeped and I saw your comment while I was typing on the laptop. :)

    And - the giveaway is live NOW! I went back to Rafflecopter and adjusted the start day. Oops!

  5. Thanks! I've been sending home a weekly study page for my reading lessons. It includes spelling words, vocabulary words, high frequency words, as well as our language arts focus skills. It was functional and I added clip art to jazz it up a bit, but it was still too *something*. (I don't know what to insert there--maybe sterile.)

    I like the look of your page. I think I will take my info and insert it. Maybe it's the borders you have!?! That adds some pa nosh. :) Thanks for sharing.

    1. Could you also share the fonts you used? I've been trying to choose fonts that are compatible, but mine look a little off.

      Thanks.

    2. I used "MTF Jumpin' Jack" for the sub headings, "My Own Topher" for my name and "HelloFirstie" for the text boxes. All are available as free downloads. :)

  6. Hi! Thanks so much for sharing your work! I am wondering what spelling pyramids are as I haven't heard that term before. Also, do the children just draw a picture representing the vocabulary words for the Tuesday homework?
    Thank you!

    1. Yes, they illustrate a picture for each vocabulary word. It doesn't have to a be literal definition, as long as they can explain the connection to me, I'm good with that.

      Here's an example of spelling pyramids:

      s
      sc
      sch
      scho
      schoo
      school

      I've also heard them called spelling triangles.

  7. Hi,
    I love this and would like to use it, but I was wondering if you have a version with vocabulary where the word homework is instead. Thanks Tina

  11. I love this!! I just downloaded it and will possibly be using it in my classroom next Monday! Currently we have a spelling sheet and a homework sheet every week -- so much wasted paper! Thanks for the great freebie!

  13. Hello,

    I would love to use your template without vocab, but it cuts off part of the apple and border when printed.

    Would it be possible to get it emailed?

    Thanks!!!!
