Homework for Kindergartners

Did you know that homework could have a negative impact on learning? Homework often bores or frustrates students and can result in a loss of interest and motivation to learn. 

What’s the solution to this homework dilemma? Choose homework that is short, fun, and interesting to students. Games are ideal! With games parents can help their children with letter recognition, sound identification, rhyming, blending, segmenting, decoding, sight words, etc. Most students willingly play the games more than once so they get extra practice with the assigned skill. Most parents enjoy a game approach to homework because they help their children, have fun with them, and keep current with the skills being taught at school.

If you’re looking for an easy homework solution, check out our monthly homework packets. Each packet features literacy and math games that are aligned to the Common Core. In addition, a version with Spanish directions is included with each packet. Make homework a positive and fun experience for your students!

Following are contents of our Kindergarten Packets. We also have Pre-K and 1st Grade packets available.
