First of all, let me establish that my district requires nightly homework at all grade levels, so I really don’t have a choice about whether or not I want to assign it.
The children are supposed to have about 15 minutes of homework nightly.
Most of these books came from the Scholastic Book club, having acquired them in sets of seven or eight so that I could send them home for this purpose!
I send home a note at the beginning of the year, asking parents to take responsibility for any lost books.
On Tuesdays, I usually assign a sentence or two for the children to write.
Ideally, it should be very close to what we are going to write about in class on Wednesday during guided writing, because this will make my job just that much easier the next day.
Every so often, people ask me what I give for Kindergarten homework.
In this post, I will tell you how I create homework for kindergarten and manage it as quickly and easily as possible. The free download for the cover sheet of the homework is editable, too, so that you can change it each week to reflect what you are working on in your own class.
So it’s one of the best time investments that I could possibly make, in my opinion. There are large flash cards to use in class, and small ones that fit on a single sheet that I can send home with just one click on my xerox machine.
I send home these small flash cards for the kids to cut apart and practice matching up at the beginning of each word family unit.
