Have you heard about this? Do you play in your classroom?
I've played Homeworkopoly with 5th graders and customized the streets so they are the street names of my students- they really loved this.
I've even been playing it with my 6th graders. The individual spaces are not named, but the kids love to play regardless. I love the fact that it rewards the individual students instead of rewarding the class if all students have completed their homework. Don't get me wrong, I don't have a problem with teachers doing this, I just prefer using Homeworkopoly.
I play once every week, usually on Friday and sometimes on Monday. Students only get to play if they have completed their homework on time. NO LATE assignments.
I have these colored dice for students to use while playing.
I have made the prizes simple and easy. I use homework passes only if students land on the HW space, erasers, candy, pens, coupons (usually post-it notes that have the following messages: Do 1/2 of a CW assignment, Do 1/2 of a HW assignment, and Do 1/2 of a WB page. The last three give the student some practice on the skill being taught or reviewed, but they don't have to do all of them.
I also set up one of the spaces so that they get a ticket- this is to be traded in for candy, and homework passes.
I have a metal cabinet so I've put magnets on all of my pieces and then I bought round magnets from Walmart that the students put a neon round sticker on and write their name with a fine point sharpie pen.
