Kindergarten homework projects

I don't know how long it will take for me to not be completely fascinated by kindergarten; these kids are incredibly active and busy! Amelia's kindergarten teacher does not give a lot of specific homework, but she asks us to work at home with our children however we wish.

I scoured the Internet for some Kindergarten worksheets, mostly focusing on letter formation and sight words.

Letter Formation:
Here is a full A-to-Z set of printable trace and print letter worksheets. Amelia knows how to write all the letters, but she does many of them bottom-to-top. I like that these worksheets have a dot at the top of each letter, as a clue showing where they should start with their pencil. I watch her do these to make sure she is practicing the correct method of letter formation.

Sight Words:
I really like this sight word game, Roll A Sight Word. The worksheets are printed without words, so I am able to fill in the words that fit the class schedule, or the few that Amelia needs extra practice to master. You need one standard die and a pencil. Writing the sight words repeatedly is a fantastic way to soak in the spelling and help memorize the pattern and look of the word. 

And finally, I made several worksheets of my own. Amelia loves to color, so I printed several sheets filled with bubble-letter sight words. I say the sight word, she colors it. This helps her to recognize the word, plus she has fun coloring. We have a few rainbow words around our house!

  1. Great Idea! I am homeschooling my sons and this would be a nice addition to our current curriculum.

  2. I'm excited my daughter's kindergarten teacher is willing to work at her level. She blew through all the 100 sight words by the end of the second week and has been moved to spelling tests of the sight words. Our school uses ixl.com for "math" though I find the kindergarten level of actrtual addition and subtraction too boring. The other sections with patterns, less/more and geometry shapes are pretty good. Not sure if they have a free membership!

  4. It has been months since he left his Preschool and my son is still asking to go to school, and telling stories of things that he's done with his kindergarten teacher. He constantly asks to see her.
