Homework Ideas for Kindergarten
Since kindergartners don’t get written homework each night, we have come together to come up with some general homework ideas for your child to work on each night to strengthen their skills.

If they can use inventive spelling to write words let them! Tell them to write the sounds they hear and then have them read it to you.
Word Wednesday-practice writing words. Have students pick a word and you write it for them. Have them copy the word a few times on paper following the proper writing techniques of beginning with an upper case letter and having the rest lower case. Also work on proper formation of each letter and using line space correctly.
Time to read Thursday-read a story to your child. After you are done reading, have them retell the story to you without looking at the pictures. This helps with story comprehension.
