Boy Mama Teacher Mama: Homework Survival Kit

I finally took my own suggestions (hee!) and created our family Homework Survival Kit.   The kit is just one part of BMTM’s Homework Helper Packet for the Classroom Teacher and I have been wanting to make it for a while. And, this morning I was inspired by the Crayola buy one get one free promotion at Toys r Us.

Materials:

  • container of some sort
  • school supplies (pencils, crayons, markers, colored pencils, erasers, scissors, pencil sharpener, glue stick etc)

Creating the Homework Survival Kit

The Container

I did not want to buy a new container so I took 4 empty water bottles we had in our recycling, cleaned and dried them, cut off the tops. and taped them together.

I then used some cute contact paper we had in our craft closet and wrapped it around the bottles and over the edges because they are a bit sharp.

The Supplies

I picked up a handful of school supplies from the store…

Then added a few things we already had…

Putting It All Together

We then opened up all the boxes and put our supplies in our Homework Survival Kit. I also plan to add a number line for math homework, but haven’t printed it yet. Click here for a free number line.

Then we added our label and now we are all ready for whatever homework comes our way!

The Homework Survival Kit as, well, Homework!

This week in first grade, we made creating a homework survival kit a homework assignment. We sent home a note explaining the kit along with the labels (above), a number line and a writing book mark from A Year of Many Firsts’ Writers Workshop Mega Pack (amazing resource by the way).  I asked my students to take a picture of their homework survival kit and send it to me. I hope some of them do and I can share it with you!
