My students will be getting homework on the first day of school.
However, this will be their homework:
It's amazing how many fifth graders don't know their addresses or other crucial information, so this is an easy way for them to talk to their families about the basics. Plus, it looks fun and like facebook :)
We also use a form very similar to this for our book characters. My students also update fake statuses for their book characters depending on the events in the story.
