I've been using these EDITABLE Homework Menus for several years and LOVE them! Each menu for August through July contains tasks for phonics, reading/writing, math, and science/social studies. High Frequency word lists are included for each month using the first 100-300 Fry words. There are pre-and post assessments for each month to assess acquisition of high frequency words. Finally, there are several files in the download including: complete menus, editable high frequency words, editable tasks, fully editable, editable monthly calendars for behavior or parent communication.
These menus cut my prep time in half! Tasks are aligned to Common Core standards for kindergarten and first grade so students are getting meaningful practice in each night! Parents love that the homework tasks are brief, lasting no more than 5-10 minutes. Students love the autonomy of choosing which task they want to work on each night! It's a win-win! Check them out today!
Are you looking for ways to manage routines through the day? CHAMPS may be the answer! These CHAMPS posters are simplified and easy to implement. Just print, laminate, and manage behavior like a boss! To learn more about CHAMPS or this product click here!
What about morning routines. Are you in the market for a simple, paper saving morning work option? I don't know about you but I don't have the time or copies to print a page for each student everyday. I also don't believe in being that wasteful! These Morning Work Quick Activities may be the answer! Print one page per student per week! Everyday after my students unpack they take out their morning work folder and complete one of the five standards based tasks. This helps everyone settle into the day with a meaningful activity. I glue a library pocket into the front of each morning work journal. Students cut out the tasks on Monday and keep them in the pocket until we complete that task through the week. It's simple, efficient, and effective!
Can you tell I like to simplify things for myself? #WorkSmarter
