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.
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! :)
