You and your students will love these exciting and enjoyable homework packets! Your students will build confidence with reading and writing letters of the alphabet; explore sounds in depth; practice with vowel sounds; build fluency with reading common sight words; practice writing and using sight words in sentences; write and draw to express their interests and ideas, practice with basic conventions in writing; develop counting skills and number sense; write numerals; practice with patterns; build geometry skills; explore a variety of ways to solve problems, and more...and they will do all these things in a fun way, so homework will not feel like a chore!
This homework set includes 4 weeks—the 5th set in a series of 8--of engaging, challenging homework designed to align with kindergarten Common Core State Standards. (Be sure to check out the other 7 sets as well as the whole year bundle in my store at http://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Store/Slp4jc.) The wide variety of tasks in each packet allow both for practice of basic skills and opportunities for creativity. The clip art within the homework pages are easily recognizable black-line drawings and are used as an integral part of many homework tasks.
Each week of homework includes the following components:
**A cover sheet to provide you as the teacher with a list of CCSS addressed in that week's homework
**A page dealing with letter/word work
**A page addressing phonemic awareness and/or phonics skills
**A page that provides practice with reading, writing, and using common sight words
**A page that gives students the opportunity to develop as writers
**A page addressing basic math skills
**A page that allows students to solve realistic word problems
**An answer key (While I realize that most of the answers will be obvious, it sometimes is useful to have the answers right in front of you when checking work. Also, if you ever have a question about what a picture is, a quick look at the answer key should help clear up any questions!)
You as the teacher will save valuable time when you use these ready-to-go homework packets--the packets are ready to use and require no preparation--other than copying--on your part! You can copy all 6 pages (all may be copied as double-sided pages, as no cutting is required) and staple as a packet for the week. Or, you can choose to create multiple packets, to use individual pages, to select certain pages to use, and/or to use pages as a combination of homework and classwork.
While these homework packets are primarily designed to address kindergarten CCSS, they would be appropriate for pre-kindergarten students who are ready for a challenge or for 1st/2nd grade students needing review of basic skills.
Additional homework sets, as well as a bundle of all sets (designed to last for the entire school year!) are available in my store (http://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Store/Slp4jc). Individual sets (4 weeks each) are $4 per set. The full year bundle is $28 and includes a bonus file of editable cover sheets and reading logs.
