Hi Fellow Teachers!!
I wanted to share with you my amazing homework packets. I worked all summer perfecting them and I am so excited to share them with you. Here are the what the calendars look like for each month!
I have created monthly homework packets for August-May.
The best way to implement this homework plan is to send home the pre made Parent Letter. It is in the August file. It explains everything that is expected. I suggest sending home the letter and then discussing it at your Back to School Night.
The month of AUGUST is FREE!! So download it now and get that parent letter.
Also, the homework makes it clear what should be completed each night. I send home one week’s worth of work each week. I grade the homework on Friday and then send home the next week’s work.
In order to create the homework, I roughly estimated the typical weeks we have in each month. August has two weeks of work to get those kiddos started on homework lightly as we get to know each other. November and December have work during holidays, but it’s simple and engaging. I included plenty of weeks and sometimes in my class if it is a holiday week, I make the homework optional by writing “optional” in the blank space provided under the Week Number.
All of the activities are based on First Grade Common Core Standards. I repeat activities, but each time they are repeated, I increase the difficulty level. The best thing about this homework is that you can Differentiate it. You can easily use this homework for a Kinder student who is performing above grade level or use it for a Second Grade student who needs to review the basics again.
Another thing about my homework is that you can tailor it to your needs. I provide a blank Math Calendar for you to write in what you would like to students to do. My school provides us with EnVision math workbooks so I write in the pages I would like my students to do each night of the week.
The homework varies from math, language arts, and science. Each week I keep it fresh and change it up. I never want the students doing the same thing each week. Math activities range from addition, subtraction, shapes, to even writing their own math stories. Language Arts activities vary from phonics, sight words, informational text, to even writing their own creative stories. Science activities are in a Language Arts format with informational writing or reading.
