I am not a big believer in sending a bunch of homework home in kindergarten, but I do love it when families work with their children on tasks that they are learning in school. Below are some suggested ideas to have your child work on throughout the week.

Monday - Practice writing first/last name. Make sure that they are using only a capital letter at the beginning of their name.

Tuesday - Count to 100

Wednesday - Practice writing numbers 0 - 5.

Thursday - Find objects around the room and have your child tell you the first sounds.

Friday - Find 4 objects around your house that are the shape of a rectangle, square, circle, and triangle.

Remember to read 20 minutes a day!!
