Here is information all about our First Quarter Kindergarten Homework. Included in this set is 8 weeks of homework and it’s EDITABLE if you open it in Adobe. It comes in traditional print and D’Nealian. Easily pull each week’s homework, print, and put into your student’s folders.
Each week comes with a cover page that has a reading log and some sort of daily skills practice. This is great because it helps the family to work with some of these skills that we don’t really teach but are important for the kids to know. The skills will progress over the year to include phone numbers, initials, etc, but this first unit includes:
- first name
- last name
Each week also has two pages of academic review. This can easily be copied back to back to save paper. It is separated into days (Monday through Thursday but you can change them if you use the editable version) and each day has three skills to review. These skills also scaffold throughout the quarter; for example, we start with simple sounds and towards the end of the quarter the students start working with CVC words. Academic concepts this quarter include:
- tracing & drawing shapes
- identifying shapes in the environment
- rhyming words
- identifying the number of objects
- writing lowercase letters
- differentiating upper and lowercase letters
- reading letter names/sounds
- identifying and writing initial sounds
- writing simple CVC words
- number of sounds in words (phoneme segmentation)
- counting objects and writing the number
- ten frames
- writing numbers to 10
- writing missing numbers
And the best part is the family games. Each week comes with a print-and-play game. These are usually two pages. The students (or family) will color the pieces, cut them out, and play the game. Each game comes with directions and a label. Slide these games into a baggie or envelop with the label on the outside to build up a bank of games for the students to play all year! Your parents will RAVE about this component to the homework! Fourth quarter’s games include:
- Pencil ABC Match (part 1)
- Pencil ABC Match (Part 2)
- Star Number Puzzles
- Initial Sound Apple Sorts
- Delicious Apple Rhymes
- Environmental Shape Sorting Mat Game
- 1-10 Number Puzzles
- I Can Read Tic-Tac-Toe
