Dr. Corry is a veteran teacher in North Las Vegas and she just happens to send me things she has created to put on my blog. She thought this would be great to share for other teachers out there. Enjoy!

Last year, I had many students who did not fully complete their homework.  Because our homework is so focused on helping the students maintain their academic mastery levels, it is important that they do it.  So, this year, I created Corryopoly.  I took various ideas from the internet on Homeworkopoly and changed them up specific to my classroom, the school, and a fairy tale theme.  All students who complete the homework for the week get to play.  They each take a turn rolling the dice and moving around the board.  If they land on a property, they earn a classroom penny, nickel, dime, or quarter based what row they are traveling.  Coins are traded up to quarters, half dollars, and dollars to go shopping in the class store.  In addition, if they land on Chance or Community Computers, they pick an extra incentive card.  They especially like those cards because the cards say things such as "sit at the teacher's table" or "lunch with a friend in the classroom" or "phone call home from the teacher to a parent with lots of praise for the student" or "bring in a special show and tell item to share."
