Homework Packets and Back to School Sale

As I went for my evening run tonight, I thought about the first day of school- it's tomorrow! I'm looking forward to meeting the 24 kinders in my class. One of the 24 is my daughter, which makes tomorrow even more special! She is just as excited as I am to start kindergarten!  Then my thoughts moved to making homework packets for September (that's when I start sending home homework) which made me think of my Common Core Aligned Monthly Homework Packets. 

Kindergarten Homework Packets by the Month- Common Core Aligned

This has been one of my best selling products on TPT! I made it super easy- just run a month off back to back and staple! Easy peasy!  I send home the packet on Monday and collect it Friday. The homework is not too time consuming and really reinforces what we are learning in the classroom. The skills correlate with our standards-based report card. I also included skills such as tying shoes, saying address, phone number and birthday, and getting outer gear on.

I keep the monthly packet stapled together. It's just easier that way and you have less individual papers to keep track of!


Tomorrow is a one day TPT sale. Visit my store and stock up on any last minute products to get your year started off right! :)

Back to School

I go back to school in two weeks. Back in June I told myself not to do anything school related until August 1. That lasted until mid-July. I was busy creating monthly homework packets and planning for the first few weeks of school. I'm looking forward to tomorrow- the TPT Back to School sale! I'll get the items on my wishlist in time for school to begin!

My Monthly Homework Packets have four activities per week, both academic (practicing math, reading, writing, and phonics skills we will work on at school) and non-academic (such as tying shoes, saying phone number and address).
