This is kindergarten homework I worked all last year on for my team. (2014-2015 school year). It is editable for your convenience. I wanted to make it as simple as possible for the teacher, yet rigorous for the students and still age appropriate. It is set up to go home every three weeks. The only thing you have to change is the due dates every three weeks, and send three books home with the packet for the students to read. (Books can be even printables.) I sent home a below level (to gain confidence), on-level (to push a little harder), and advanced level (for the parent to read with their child) with each homework packet. The homework covers sight words from SIPPS for the whole year (85 total) with a few extra words our team found beneficial, and incorporates Common Core skills for reading, writing, math, science and social studies. I use Manilla envelopes to send homework packets and the 3 books home each 3 weeks. Glue the next page after this one on the front of the packet “Kindergarten Homework Directions”, so parents always have directions. They will get use to the pattern after the first homework is completed. The first Unit, you will print pg.3-11 only. After each reading log, begins a new 3 week homework unit. If you have any problems, questions or concerns, please contact me through my Teacher’s Pay Teachers Store. I am happy to help you!

Directions for parents:
Kindergarten students will receive homework packets that are due every three weeks. Each day (Monday-Thursday) will have one or two assignments for the students to complete. Some assignments are written while others are activities for your child to do orally or with materials at home. All written assignments have a page in the packet for your child to complete the work. Please help your child complete the work each night and return the folder by the Due DATE (usually a Friday). Please wait until the 3rd week to return it. I will send the folders home again the following Monday.
Additionally, students have to read or listen to an adult read at least 10 books or more over the 3 week period. These books will include the books we provide for you to use in packet to use with Monday night homework. Please write down the books that you read with your child on the Book Log.
Thank you for your help! It’s going to be a great year!
