Spring Break Homework Tic-Tac-Toe

I can't believe spring break is almost here! I just finished making our spring break homework tic-tac-toe. I found this great idea on a blog a couple of years ago. I wish I could remember what the blog was called. I adapt it a little each year to meet the needs of my students. A homework tic-tac-toe is a great alternative to  making hundreds of copies for spring break homework packets. Students can choose their activities and get a little bit of learning time in over the break.
