Preparing Assignment Sheets


Students with special learning needs perform better when assignments are structured. Providing time for the student to fill out an assignment sheet daily with relevant information will help to provide this structure. In order to succeed in the task of preparing assignment sheets, the student needs instructions in how to look at assignments and how to complete them in an organized way. In learning how to correctly prepare assignment sheets, the students will be able to strengthen their ability to remember to take adequate materials and information home in order to complete homework assignments.

Teach students to follow the "Rules for Writing Assignments." Rules should then be displayed in the classroom.

Rules for Writing Assignments:

  • Write the assignment exactly as your teacher gives it.
  • Write the word "book," "workbook," or "worksheet".
  • Write the page number.
  • Write all important information such as Part A, numbers 1-10.
  • Write the date the assignment is due.
  • Have parents initial the assignment sheet daily.
