Many students wanted the prize but had no time or support to do homework at home. If this was the case, I offered to work on it with them during free time. This was a win/win situation for both of us. :) My homework/extra work packets usually consist of a cutting page or a cut and glue paper, some kind of colors, counting, shapes, letter of the alphabet practice, and/or name writing practice page. I would try to mix it up each week. From time to time, I also include a family project, such as decorating a turkey in disquise, family Christmas stocking, etc. I also try to send home a packet of extra work to everyone over long breaks from school. I have a 1" binder I use with every student to send home daily notes, projects and homework. That way parents know to look in the binder instead of having to search through the backpack. This is my binder cover.
