Homework is done in a notebook like this one. Students have notebooks for each subject.
Fifth grade math homework is done in a notebook like this. It has paper with small squares. At our school, parents correct homework after it is finished. A circle is used to show that the answer is correct. See the little pawprint? Little Brother's teacher stamped it to show that she saw the work and recorded it in her book. There is no grade for homework. Just a check, or rather, a circle in the teacher's record book.
Here are examples of the work he did last year. Note the different ways the problems were written on the page.
See the red writing near the top? Papa wrote "mimashita, Chikamatsu". "I saw it, Chikamatsu."
