I'm Amy from Cahill's Creations and I'm here to talk about homework in kindergarten.
As a kindergarten teacher, I've always given packets of homework. This year, I've decided to change the way I give homework. After a lot of thought and careful research, I realized that minimal homework is best for kindergarten kids. I do like to give some homework, mostly to keep parents in the loop of what we are learning and to keep them involved.
So, here we go!
I've created homework calendars. Each day the kids will have an activity to complete that should not take them long to complete. I'm really excited to use these calendars in my classroom this year!
I think it'll be a lot less work for me as well as for parents. It's also something that is extremely easy to modify and adjust as needed.
Homework should be completed as a quick review of skills learned. I also like the idea of homework helping kids to learn responsibility and time management.
How do you give homework in your classroom? I'd love to hear your ideas!
Thanks for stopping by!
