Homework for Young Children: Yay or Nay

As the trend as-of -late is to offer less homework to increase family time, I agree with the Duke University study that concludes that although students shouldn't be doing hours of nightly homework, they should be doing homework. Dr. Cooper, Professor of Psychology and Neuroscience states that homework should be thought of as dietary supplement. If you do not take it you won't have any dietary advantage. If you take too much, it will have ill effects. 

Another reason that I believe quality, flexible, homework should be provided is that it is the only time a parent truly can have a glimpse at what skills are being learned in the classroom, and more importantly how their child is coping with those skills. 


Quality Homework

"Vatterott, the author of Rethinking Homework: Best Practices That Support Diverse Needs, thinks there should be more emphasis on improving the quality of homework tasks...."

That is the goal we used to create our homework packets: to provide quality parent friendly homework that doesn't interrupt family life, but rather enriches it! When we created these packets, we began with the Core Standards, added the timeline for skill practice, and then made each activity fun and engaging.

Teachers, parents, and students alike love the flexibility and ease of these great homework packets. They are easy to prepare, easy to send home, and easy to fit into busy family life. Our goal is to enrich family life, strengthen student skills, and give teachers more "home-time." 

Our homework comes in three levels: Preschool, Kindergarten, and First Grade. They can also be used as Below Benchmark, At Benchmark, or Above Benchmark for any of the above named grade levels.

These homework packets (as with all of our products), are available at Teacher's Pay Teacher's, or here at our Kiosk store.

I bought and used the preschool set this year - which my kids and parents loved.
Going to K next year, had to buy these
This is incredible!! I love how you’ve incorporated all the subject areas as well as fine motor skills. This will save me a ton of time.
This packet has made my time AFTER school so much less. Thank you, now I can spend time with my own children, and still provide my students with quality homework.
Love your homework packets!
These are great for my kiddos. They love them!
Fabulous packet once again! Keep up the good work!!
Love this! The games and activities are very engaging and effective. I just wish it was sold in a bundle as a whole year with all the other months.
