I’ve decided to rethink my homework a little bit this year.  I wasn’t happy with the meaningfullness level!  I wanted to have homework be something meaningful and something we could use in the classroom when the children brought it back after several days.  I’m posting my first homework packet.  Please remember this is the beginning of the year!  I hope to post more of the packets for you, but it will depend upon if I used published copyrighted work from other authors if I can post all the pages. 🙂



This is the homework cover sheet.  I’m working on finding the “Ways to Practice your Name” sheet.  I’ll post that when I find it.  I think it’s on my computer at school.


These are the sheets that go with the cover sheet.  You will want to make sure they are in the same order as they are listed on the cover sheet.  You might need to change the fonts up a bit…I have a set of fonts on my school computer that I don’t have on my home computer so they don’t always “transfer” correctly.

I’ll begin sending packets home next Monday. 🙂

  3. As a new teacher, I AM SO grateful you share ideas and material. Being that I am new, I’m starting from scratch! To complicate things, I’m job sharing in K and our system is not working for me AT ALL. EVERYDAY I think, How can I make this better for me and my students?
    I’m ALWAYS searching for things that work for me. I collect as I go and hope when the day comes I get my own class, I will hit the ground running and not fall completely on my face. You website makes me do a happy dance! You homework ideas really spoke to me. Are you willing to share you all homework files? Currently, my teaching partner just says toss ’em when returned 😦 What a waste of time and paper :/

    Also, your 5E’s are a great help in learning how to set up an inquiry based lesson for K! I will use them as guide to develop up my own 5E LP’s.

    Again, thanks so for much sharing. You students and parents are lucky to have you. I will back check often!

    kindershare 🙂
