As teachers, we know how hard our students work each day. We also know that fine-motor, gross-motor, and social-emotional skills are just as important as academic skills…especially with our young learners. These critically important skills are often pushed to the side at school and at home.

I created these EDITABLE (PowerPoint and Slides versions included) experience-based homework calendars to address the non-academic skills my students were missing, as well as, comply with our school’s “Homework Policy”. Additionally, these calendars respect that our students lead incredibly busy and scheduled lives outside of school and need opportunities to be kids!

Included in this resource

  • 10 months of Editable homework calendars (August thru May or September thru June). These “calendars” are formatted as choice boards, giving families and students flexibility when…or if…they complete the 16 activities (averaging four activities each week).
  • Editable at-home reading star chart
  • Editable letter to families explaining these experience-base homework calendars
  • Editable monthly choice board (not month or theme specific)
  • a completion certificate
  • Story and list paper (to attach to monthly calendars)

(Note – all editable resources are in a separate PowerPoint or Google Slide file. For the PowerPoint file, download KG Primary Penmanship and KG Second Chances Solid fonts for free on Teachers Pay Teachers.)


Although many of the activities can be completed independently, several activities each month require adult supervision or support. Therefore, these calendars may not work for every classroom or student population.
