    Management of Homeworkopoly
    By Erica

    Hi all! I tried to use Homeworkopoly last year with my fifth graders. They loved it! I only had prizes for certain spots, brain binders, community chest, etc. I didn't use prizes for everything. I kept it to a minimum and tried to utilize prizes that I didn't have to purchase- Sit at the Teacher's Desk for the day; Have lunch with the teacher today; Brain Binder; and of course 5-10 minutes of Computer time. Playing the game every day didn't work well for me. It takes time and I felt that I had to be the one to manage it. This year I have decided to make it the job of the Assignment Manager to monitor the turn-taking of Homeworkopoly as call out student #s to collect homework. This will only take place on Fridays. I thought about allowing students who turned in all assignments to use a pair of dice and those who missed 1 assignment to use 1 die. I still have to think this through, but I just wanted to share my experience and ideas with you. I am glad to see that others were having management problems, too. Homeworkhopoly just didn't seem to work for me as an everyday thing. Good Luck to those of you who try it. It is fun, when the management issue isn't a problem!- Erica
