This product is a complete school year of nontraditional homework that I use in my Kindergarten classroom. It may also be used in preschool and first grade classrooms.
The pack consists of a project per month for families and students to do together at home (September-May) as well as a reading log per month. The students bring the project into school upon finishing and will share it with their class.
Each month has a parent letter explaining that month's project as well as a QR code of a related story for families to read/listen to together at home. Any printables needed for the project to be completed are also included as well as a welcome letter explaining the purpose of family based homework.
The hope is that family time and parent involvement increases at home by working and playing with our kids through the completion of fun and creative projects.
The projects include:
September: Summer Fun Scrap Book Page
October: Pumpkin Carving Activity and Question Sheet
November: Turkey Disguise and Question Sheet
December: Giving Activity Sheet
January: Timeline of Child's Life
February: Valentine Creation & Letter Writing
March: Map of Child's Bedroom
April: Recycled Art Sculpture and Diagram
May: Summer Goals and Wish List
