Losing homework seems to be an epidemic among America's school children, and as a result, speech-language homework assigned by SLPs often goes undone. Luckily SLP Erik X. Raj of Detroit has found a remedy: Just shrink the homework papers for portability and bonus "cute factor."
"I came up with the idea to create my own homework worksheets, but instead of making my dittos the size of standard paper, 8.5 inches wide and 11 inches tall, I made them pocket-sized. These dittos are about the size of a cell phone and have been working GREAT!
"I have been handing out pint-sized homework assignments, and I have found that once the homework is physically in the student's pocket, the black hole cannot make it disappear! Eureka! (And since we speech-language pathologists love data—my homework return rate is now hovering around 80 percent, which is terrific when you compare it to the initial 30 percent.)
"In celebration of my wonderful discovery, I made you some FREE teeny tiny multiple choice articulation question dittos ... These are perfect for students who are working toward improving their initial /s/ sound."
