Have your kindergarten homework ready to print and go for the entire year with these completely editable homework calendars! Also included is a fully editable parent letter that goes into detail about the calendars and how parents can use them.
UPDATED for the 2020-21 school year, these homework calendars include Spanish language calendars and a Spanish parent letter! To access the yearly update, just re-download the calendars from your My Purchases section of your account during the month of July (you'll receive a notification when they've been updated).
These 11-month homework calendars are tailored to focus three main content areas: math, phonics, and writing. They are formatted so that the days of the week focus on the same topic each month, so students and their parents come to know what to expect every night.
NEW: More care has been taken to be sure that activities are more inclusive of students' living situations, preferences, and access to household items. Wording has also been added to further extend in-class learning by giving caregivers more specific vocabulary to use at home.

You will need PowerPoint to edit the calendars. If you need to edit these calendars to suit your school's calendar year, you can! Just copy, paste, or delete any text you need to. You can also edit the table for shading of days off or breaks.
NEW: A blank July calendar has been added. You can copy any text from the August calendar and add it to July, then move the content from September into August, and so on. Since it is impossible for me to tailor these calendars to fit your individual calendar year, you will likely want to adjust the beginning and end of the year by copying, pasting, and deleting any days that you want your students to have homework.
Multiple kindergarten standards are covered in these calendars. Below is a general overview of skills covered:
- Letter Writing
- Letter ID
- Beginning Sound ID
- High Frequency Words (called Snap Words in these calendars)
- Adding, Deleting, and Substituting Sounds in CVC Words
- Word Endings (Word Families)
- Sentence Writing
- Illustrating to Match Writing
- Opinion & Informational Writing
- Number ID
- Number Writing
- Counting to 100 by Ones and Tens
- Number Sequence and Patterns
- More and Less
- Counting to Tell How Many (Cardinality)
- Symbols of Operations
- Word Problems: Basic Operations as well as Fair Share and Partitive Division
- Sorting and Comparing
Reading is encouraged on Wednesday nights, but the skill focus is on identifying snap (high frequency) words in context. If you want to assign additional nightly reading, add that to your parent letter.
