You and your students will love these engaging and enjoyable common core aligned homework packets all year long! Throughout the school year, your students will practice identifying and writing all capital and lowercase letters of the alphabet; explore beginning, middle, and ending sounds in depth; practice with rhyming words and breaking words into 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, as well as to tell real information about various topics; practice with basic conventions in writing; develop counting skills and number sense; write numerals through 100; add and subtract; build basic geometry skills; read and make simple graphs; 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 32 weeks of engaging, challenging homework designed to align with kindergarten Common Core State Standards. These homework packets follow a logical sequence throughout the school year, as kindergarten students grow in their skills and independence. 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.
There are 8 sets of homework packets (A-H), and each set contains 4 weeks of homework packets. All 8 sets are combined into one easy-to-use document of student pages, and the complete answer key is a separate document.
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 (Note--each packet includes practice with common sight words; however, this bundle also includes an editable document that allows you to type in your own sight words to use in place of or in addition to the included sight word pages. This feature allows you to customize the sight word portion of the packets or to provide additional practice or enrichment to differentiate for individual students.)
~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 contained in a separate document (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 for each week (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.
As a bonus, this complete set of homework includes an editable file with several options for cover sheets and reading logs. If you would like to include a cover sheet for your homework packet, I have included some options that allow you to include a due date, classroom news/reminders, parent signature line, and reading log. You can delete or change any of those features to meet your needs. Or, you can use one of the other reading log options, either as a page of the weekly homework packet, or as a monthly log.
When you purchase this homework bundle, you are paying less than $1 per week to have simple-to-use, enjoyable, common core aligned homework for the entire school year!
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.
Homework Sets A-H are also available individually in my store (http://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Store/Slp4jc) for $4 per set. Each set includes 4 weeks of homework.
