Welcome to My Version of

HomeworkOPOLY!
Dear Fellow Educators,
I was so excited about this game that I went a little bonkers revising and creating
new features. You have my permission to use my game board and
Chance/Community Lunchbox cards.
To give credit, where credit is due, I used the HomeworkOPOLY idea from the
following website: http://www.teachnet.com/homeworkopoly/
The Teachnet website has the game board and cards for you to download in PDF
form.
However, if you want to use my blank game board, please do so. The reason I
like what I created, is because you can type (using PowerPoint), each of the game
spots on the board. If you download the Teachnet game, you either have to use
what they created, or write what you want on their game board. I like computer
writing rather than my own.
I am hoping these slides view ok on your computer. Since I designed everything
using a 22 inch screen, I noticed a few of the slides came out a little wacky when I
went to print using a 15 inch screen at school. Before I printed, I had to adjust a
few of the pictures and writing. If this happens to you, just re-adjust things. Thats
what I did. I also created this on PowerPoint 2007. However, I saved it in 2003 so
most people should be able to view and print.

You may print this whole presentation, or print individual slides. If you want to add or
change the writing to fit your needs, just create a text box where you need it.
Directions, Tips, and Tricks
1. Type and add pictures to each of the game spots.
2. Print on regular paper or card stock. Since I mounted my game on a magnetic
whiteboard, I decided to print on regular paper. After printing, I glued one side of the
game onto construction paper (4 sides altogether). Obviously, try and laminate the
sides. Then, using magnets, I put the game up on my whiteboard. If you are going
to put the game on a bulletin board, try printing on cardstock.
3. The students colored and cut out little cars for their game pieces.
Rules
Create rules to fit your circumstances. Here is what I did:
1. Students roll the dice once a week on Friday if they completed (in a
satisfactory manner), all of their homework. Occasionally, they were rewarded
to roll the dice during another day. For example, if they did a perfect job during
a fire drill, everyone got to roll once. Or, one time the Superintendent
commented on how well behaved they were. So, they all got to roll. But, I dont
go crazy. Once a week is plenty!
KAnglin2007

2. Using the idea from Teachnet and other educators, I have a classroom job called
the GAME SHOW HOST (or hostess). The responsibility of the host is to monitor the
rolling of the dice, making sure the student jumps his/her game marker correctly. The
host also gives out the special tickets or Community Lunchbox/ Chance cards to
winning students. One thing that has helped, is I trained the host to say this:
Game Show Host: Your marker is on Library. (or whatever spot they are on)
What spot are you on?
Student: My marker is on Library.
Then, the student rolls the dice. This helps alleviate problems if the child doesnt
move his/her marker correctly. There are less arguments.
3.After seeing my game board, you are probably wishing you could print it out. Well, I
am going to let you be creative and design your own. I designed a board that has
characters and situations that are popular with the kids at this moment. It will be out of
date by next year when Hannah Montana has stopped being popular. I am designing
a math themed board which I will finish and put up in the early spring.
4.Since my name is Mrs. Anglin, I named my game AnglinOPOLY. You can use your
name in the game title too. Just delete my name (on slide____) and type your own.
Or, you can use the Teachnets HomeworkOPOLY sign.

5. Oh, by the way, when you see the directions on the game freetime passes, that say,
This computer pass is to be used
during
Dos.
Here is what MAY Dos mean: It is kindMAY
of a California
thingwe write on our boards
Must Dos and May Dos
Children MUST DO the assignments listed before they can start any of the MAY Dos.
If you dont do the MAY DO MUST DO procedure, just delete it from my cards.
Feel free to add or change anything on this PowerPoint presentation.
