This CCSS aligned math and literacy pack targets skills that kindergarten students should be working on in August, or at the beginning of the school year. This includes rhyming, alphabet recognition, numbers 1-10, fine motor skills, etc. This pack would also be perfect as an RTI tool for first graders or older students.
I try to only include activities students can do independently at this point in the year. This way you can get YOUR morning work done as well while students are focused, engaged and busy working independently.
I know where of my kindergarten students are at academically each month, and I have targeted those skills. My seat work packs get progressively more difficult throughout the school year as students master more skills.
I try to be very thorough, as I do not want this to just be "busy work."
August Seat Work Covers:
★Capital Letters (identifying and matching)
★Matching like numbers 1-10
★Following directions - coloring the correct color
My August seat work for kindergarten is very basic. My goal is simply to introduce them to the routine of these worksheets. I do not have my students "trace letters" for the first month because I have not taught them correct directionality for forming letters. Because of this, I have students match letters this month instead.
The worksheets increase in difficulty as the year progresses. If you don’t see a particular standard or skill addressed in this packet, it is most likely included in a different month’s seat work.

Also included are student friendly "I Can" poster cards for each of the standards addressed in this packet. I hang these on my front white board for the entire month. We read them aloud each day after seat work, and soon enough students can say them on their own! A great way to have your standards posted and addressed every day!
I have Morning Seat Work Packets available for each month. Please check them out in my TpT store (more coming soon!) I often give away FREEBIE sneak peaks! Be sure to follow me to see when I post them.
