Hi everyone! I hope you are all having a wonderful summer! I can't believe the first month has already gone by for me! I wanted to share with you all some much needed updates that I have been working on this past month. I have learned so much over this past year about blogging and creating products. I went back and took a look at some of the first products I made and realized I needed some MAJOR updates!! I am still working on some more updates and new products, but wanted to share with you some things that I have done:

Update #1: Alphabet Books

-I have added 7 more sight word mini reader books to this set to make 31 interactive sight word books! Check out my updated post about these sight words mini readers HERE

Year Long Kindergarten Homework! + EXTRA + FREEBIE!

I am so excited to share with you my project that I have finally finished!! 

Kindergarten Year Long Homework!
(Choose from: English Only OR English & Spanish Directions)
     

Over the past couple years, I have been really wanting to send homework home with my students that had little prep time for me, but was also effective, engaging, fun, and hands-on for them. I decided to make the homework myself this year and to see how it went. I am so happy I did! Throughout this school year, I have seen such incredible growth in learning, confidence, independence, and excitement! My students would be so excited for Monday because they knew that they would get a new homework packet from me. Even the parents were excited too! 

One thing I will always remember this year is when I had a parent meet with me after school to tell me how much her and her child look forward to working on the homework packets each week. She continued to tell me how excited her child gets when they complete homework with help, little help, or on their own and that her child has gained so much pride and confidence in themselves this year. 

I can only hope that this homework shared with all of you will do the same! 

I have created 11 months of kindergarten homework with very little prep work for you to use throughout your entire school year! The months included are August-June and have so much included in each month!







Each Month Includes:
- Weekly Homework Packets (44 total homework packets: each month has between 3-5 homework packets depending on the month)
- A list of Common Core Standards that are covered in each homework packet.
- Easy to follow directions with very little prep work for each homework packet.
- Cover Sheets for parents and students to check off completed homework each week.
- 3 Math and 3 Literacy Activities included in each homework packet.
- Lots of learning and FUN!

I have bundled up each month of kindergarten homework together and you can save over 30%! You can grab that HERE or on the picture below:

I also have my kindergarten homework separated by each month. You can click on the month below to grab it individually:
         

      

         

   

EXTRA!
Something EXTRA that I have also created is for any of you who work in a high ESL populated school like I do. Many of the parents at my school only speak and read Spanish. Therefore, I decided to make an entire separate Year Long Homework Bundle that includes homework packets for the month of August-May that has both ENGLISH & SPANISH directions!! My Spanish speaking parents were so thankful, appreciative, welcomed, and so much more comfortable helping their child with their homework throughout the year by having homework packets with Spanish directions! I have this Year Long Homework with English & Spanish Directions Bundled HERE or click on the picture below: 

I also separated the kindergarten homework with English and Spanish directions into individual months in my TPT store! You can click on the month below to grab it individually:
       

      

         

   

FREEBIE FOR YOU!
I love to use brown envelopes (6 1/2" x 9 1/2") for my homework packets. Each students has their own homework envelope that they are responsible for throughout the year. 

I always send home homework on Mondays and have them return their completed homework packet back to school inside their brown envelope on Friday. (This allows me to look over the homework on the weekend and place the new homework packet in the envelope before Monday).

I fold the new weekly homework packet in half and place it right inside of the envelope. I like to place labels on the front of my students homework envelopes. I have the homework labels in both English and Spanish for FREE in my TPT store!! Included are directions and pictures on how I put together the homework envelopes. There are also homework labels in both color (tons of colors to choose from) and black & white with multiply due date options! You can click HERE or on the picture below to grab this FREEBIE!! 




I hope you can find this kindergarten homework useful for your classroom!
