Assigning Kindergarten Homework That Works for ALL Kids

  • August 23, 2015

My first year teaching Kindergarten also happened to be the first year that I had ever assigned homework to students. You see, before I began teaching Kindergarten, I taught Pre-K. In Pre-K, we did not give homework.

When I moved up to Kindergarten, I had big dreams about the homework I would assign. I’d give out exciting and engaging assignments (never worksheets). I’d provide families with fun learning games that would bring them together. I’d send home different homework for different students, differentiating assignments based upon their needs. I was going to make homework an enjoyable and productive part of my students’ home lives!

And then…reality hit. My first year teaching Kindergarten, I had an extremely challenging class. After an 8 hour school day with my kiddos (yes, you read that right – those 5 and 6 year olds were at school for 8 hours a day), I was exhausted. I could barely manage to get materials ready for the next day, much less find or create engaging homework activities.

And differentiation? Yeah, right. That year I had students who couldn’t read a Level A book, and other students who were reading beginning chapter books. I would have been up all night trying to get together 25 different homework assignments!

Needless to say, my grand homework plans didn’t exactly happen.

As the years went on, I slowly assembled a collection of activities to send home. I found and made games, activities, and worksheets to give my students meaningful practice opportunities.

But it still took a good bit of time each week to assemble my weekly homework packet. I only believe in assigning about 10 minutes of homework a night, so you’d think it’d be quick to pull together, but it wasn’t!

I was eventually able to differentiate homework some of the time, but not as often as I wanted to. I  really wanted a set of engaging materials – with a lot of different options – that would make it easy for me to assign and differentiate homework for my kiddos.

And then, about 9 months ago, I decided that it was finally time to make the set of materials I’d been dreaming of!

My goal was to create literacy homework for Kindergarten that met the following criteria:

  • Easy to differentiate (leveled, so that a teacher could use a student’s guiding reading level to pinpoint phonics and other reading activities appropriate for that student)
  • Clear for parents to understand (with written instructions, visual aids, and videos)
  • Accessible for both English- and Spanish- speaking families
  • Suitable for students who have family help and for students who do not have family assistance

I had these goals in mind because I’ve seen kids fail to complete their homework for many different reasons. The homework may have been too hard or too easy, parents may not have understood the directions, students may not have had family help at home, etc.

And I knew I wasn’t alone in my homework struggles – I’ve never met a single teacher who found it easy to get all of their students to do their homework (even though Kinders are usually super enthusiastic learners!). Homework can be helpful and fun for our little learners, but there are so many challenges to assigning quality homework and then getting it back.

While creating my literacy homework series , I came up with some ways to overcome homework-related obstacles. In this post, I’ll share with you the solutions I’ve found to various challenges. Be sure to download all of the freebies, too!

Finding quality homework can take a long time, and not all students bring it back completed. Read this post for ideas about choosing homework that works for you and your students - and grab the homework freebies!

Challenge: My kids don’t have the supplies they need at home to complete their homework.

Solution: Survey families about their needs several times throughout the year, and provide a take-home bag of school supplies.

The more information we have about students’ home situations, the better! Click on the image below to download a free parent survey (in English and Spanish). This survey will give you information about what supplies families have at home. If you’re worried about not getting the survey back, why not have parents fill it out during Back to School night or another school event that most parents attend?

Grab this free homework survey to find out what supplies families have at home, where students complete homework, and other useful information!  Free from Learning At The Primary Pond

Once you know what supplies students do and do not have, you can do several things. First, you can prepare take-home bags of supplies that students leave in their backpacks.  Local churches and libraries will often hold school supply drives – if you are in need of duplicate supplies to send home, just ask around!

Another option is to be selective about the homework assignments that you give, sticking to assignments that don’t require many supplies. This doesn’t mean that your assignments have to be boring, however! There are lots of interactive activities that kids can do with a paper and pencil.

For example, check out this “Super Tic-Tac-Toe” game (download it below). A parent and child take turns “claiming” a space by saying the name of the alphabet letter inside it, and then tracing the missing upper or lowercase letter. Play continues until one person has claimed five spaces in a row. Two different colored pens or pencils are needed- no cutting, pasting, or coloring required!

This free alphabet super tic-tac-toe game makes a fun, no-prep homework assignment!  The student and a parent can play by tracing the missing letter to "claim" a space. The first person to claim five spaces in a row is the winner!

A third option is to give different homework assignments to different kids, depending upon what supplies they have at home. This takes a little time, but my Kindergarten Homework series makes it easy.

For example, to have students practice determining whether pairs of words rhyme, you could send home a) Rhyming Memory or b) a “Rhyming Or Not?” worksheet. Both activities address the same skill, but the memory game requires cutting while the worksheet does not. Download the activities below.

Download this free rhyming words memory game and "Rhyming or Not" worksheet - perfect for a Kindergarten homework assignment!  The game comes with parent directions in English and Spanish.

Challenge: The kids in my class have very different needs, but it takes way too long to differentiate homework.

Solution: Keep a file folder for each child with activities appropriate to the student’s skill level. Quickly pull an assignment from the folder when you want to differentiate.

The photo below shows the “Homework Folder” concept in action:

Use a simple file folder to differentiate homework assignments for your students!

On the outside of the folder is a list of the activities that are at the student’s level. All of the literacy activities on this particular list are designed for students whose instructional reading level is a Guided Reading Level A.

Inside the folder are copies of all of the activities on the list. To differentiate homework, just grab an assignment for each child from his/her folder. So quick and easy – and you don’t have to do it for every single assignment.

Challenge: I can’t seem to get out of the “worksheet rut” when assigning homework!

Solution: Create a weekly “formula” for your assignments.  For example, in Kindergarten, you might assign 1 leveled book, 2 family games, and 3 worksheets per week. If you stick to that routine, then you’ll be less likely to rely only on worksheets for your homework assignments.

And if you use my Kindergarten literacy homework series , then you’ll have leveled books, family games, and worksheets at your fingertips. There’s no need to waste time searching online or in reproducible workbooks each week!

Challenge: My students’ parents are often confused by homework assignments. Some of them don’t read English, so they don’t understand the directions.

Solution: Send home assignments that have simple, predictable directions. Spend some time in class teaching students how to complete homework, so that they can teach their parents. Provide visual directions or directions in parents’ native languages whenever possible.

Below is an example of a homework assignment that has simple and predictable directions. These sight word sheets have students reading the word, tracing it, writing it, and reading it again in a sentence.

Each time, the instructions are the same – only the sight words and sentences vary between worksheets. Even if parents can’t read in English, students will be able to complete these assignments if you show them how to do it in class.

Help students practice sight words at home with these predictable, engaging sight word homework sheets!

Another solution is to provide visual aids in your directions, as well as instructions in both English and Spanish. All of this definitely takes a lot of time to put together, but if you use my Kindergarten homework series , the work is done for you!

In my pack, each book and assignment (with the exception of simple worksheets), comes with 5 different options for parent direction sheets. You can choose written instructions with or without visual aids, as well as directions in English or Spanish.

All parent sheets also come with links to videos that parents can choose to watch. The videos explain the activities and give helpful hints, but families can also just read the written directions if they prefer.

Click here  to download a sample book and the accompanying parent directions sheets.

Challenge: I want to give my students family games and interactive activities. But not all parents are able to help out with homework.

Solution: Try your best to involve all families, but if you know that a child has to complete homework on her own, send activities that she can do independently.

When creating my leveled literacy homework series, I designed two types of activities for each skill: family games or activities that require parent support, and worksheets that students can complete independently.

The rhyming words activities (scroll up) are an example of this. The Rhyming Word Memory game is played with family members, while the worksheet can be completed independently (if students are given the directions at school).

It can be tempting to just send home worksheets with all students if  some parents can’t help out with homework. But many parents really appreciate interactive materials like family games. If you have a variety of activities available, you can select homework assignments based upon students’ individual home situations.

I hope that this post has given you some fresh ideas for preparing homework for your students! Finding materials can be time consuming, but I’ve seen my Kindergarteners benefit greatly from just 10-15 minutes of homework each night. And parents love the opportunity to be involved in their children’s learning!

Can the sight word worksheets be purchased separately from the entire homework series? If not where exactly can they be found? I have a current homework plan and these would fit in nicely with that. Thank you!

Hi Joanne! I don’t have them separately at this time – but if you email me at [email protected] , we can work something else out. 🙂

Hi Alison, I am a kindergarten teacher and use my textbook tear out sheets and am frequently frustrated that even if we do the work in class and the homework is a review it is done wrong or not done at all. Have you considered online homework as a supplement to your present pencil paper method?

Hey Julie! Totally understand that. I think that a little bit of online homework or practice could work well as long as families have easy access to the tech tools. This post explains what I sometimes use for at-home practice: https://learningattheprimarypond.com/blog/how-to-differentiate-word-work-activities/

can I use the phrase “do at home” in order to inform my students’s parents of what the assignment is? Is it correct to use this phrase?

Hi! I think that phrase works for home assignments. I always find it best to be concise and direct with parents about what you need and want from them. Make sure you use the same language throughout the year and I think that will eliminate any unnecessary confusion about what you want and/or expect. 😊

i love this

So glad you liked it, Samy! 🙂

Homework Ideas For Kindergarten

Homework is a tricky topic in most schools, especially in the younger grades. Homework in kindergarten is sometimes completely forbidden by the school, left up to the teacher, or required for all students. In my experience, homework for kindergarten students can be beneficial. It can reinforce the skills learned in the classroom and get parents involved in the learning process. However, it must be developmentally appropriate for our youngest learners. 

assignment for kg students

In order for homework to be perfect for kindergarten, it must be short enough to maintain students’ attention.

Pages and pages of written work will frustrate kids, and busy parents do not want to complete more school work for hours each evening. Short, meaningful assignments will keep kids and parents engaged. They will also be more likely to positively influence learning. 

In addition to the amount of time assignments take, the content of the assignments is also important to consider for kindergarten students. Research has shown again and again that reading with a parent (and independently) for 15-20 minutes daily is extremely beneficial to young learners. So reading together is probably the most important part! 

Assignments should also reinforce basic skills with targeted practice. It is not the time for learning completely new concepts. Additionally, assignments with oral components are perfect for kindergarten students. As they interact and talk with their caregivers, they are learning important communication skills. They are also cementing their understanding of the concepts they’ve been learning at school. 

So- short, meaningful, targeted homework that involves parents seems to be the perfect recipe for kindergarten.

That’s a lot to think about when making assignments. If you don’t have the time to plan and prepare assignments that fit your needs for homework- my Kindergarten Homework Packets might be the answer! 

homework

This bundle includes homework packets for the entire year . They are editable, but can also be printed and used immediately. The homework packets are set up to go home every three weeks. You choose three books to send home with each packet, and your students will have everything they need for meaningful homework.

Sight words as well as Common Core standards for reading, writing, math, science, and social studies are all addressed throughout the year. Activities include written and oral activities that are perfect for school-home connections. Your students will enjoy their homework, and you can rest assured that it is appropriate and engaging.

Google Classroom for Kindergarten: Must-Have Activities

google-classroom-for-kindergarten

Google Classroom for kindergarten may seem overwhelming and intimidating. Previously, I myself thought it would be too difficult for my kindergarten students to use. With the push of distance learning, I gave it a try, and I was surprised by the features it offers and its ease of use.

If you’re wanting to try Google Classroom but not sure where to start I can help. To begin, you can learn more about Google Classroom and how to set it up by reading my post “Using Google Classroom in Kindergarten: Getting Started.”

Why Use Google Classroom for Kindergarten?

Google Classroom in kindergarten has many benefits.

  • Google Classroom is free with any Google account
  • It works on a variety of devices (Chromebooks, Desktops, Laptops, Tablets)
  • Google Classroom can be used in the classroom, at home, and for distance learning
  • Students can use Google Classroom for morning work, centers, homework, or as fast finishers
  • Using Google Classroom integrates technology into learning
  • Google autosaves eliminating lost work
  • Students are engaged when using Google Classroom
  • Teachers and students can collaborate through Google Classroom
  • When using Google Classroom you no longer have to copy, collect, and return papers
  • Going digital saves paper and copies
  • Google Classroom decreases prep time
  • Differentiation is possible and easy with Google Classroom
  • You can schedule and save posts and assignments on Google Classroom

Google Classroom activities work for all subject and content areas. For the most part, I love to use them as centers or to follow up and practice a skill/concept we have learned in kindergarten. The following are a few of the activities I love to use with my students to support literacy and math instruction.

google-classroom-for-kindergarten

Must-Have Google Classroom for Kindergarten Literacy Activities

Literacy instruction in kindergarten is comprised of skills falling under the categories Reading: Literature, Reading: Informational Text, and Reading: Foundational Skills. To support literacy instruction sight words, phonemic awareness, and phonics can all be practiced through Google Classroom assignments.

Sight Words

Sight words are a large component of kindergarten reading and writing instruction. In general, sight words require practice and exposure to help students master, learn, and apply them. Crack the code activities are great because they practice sight words but also review beginning sounds and letters. There are two versions included in each of my Google Slide sight words activities. The first version allows students to drag the letters to match each picture, building a sight word. In the second version, students type the letters, which also practices keyboarding skills. These activities are available for pre-primer , primer , and first-grade sight words.

google-classroom-for-kindergarten

Phonological Awareness

Phonological awareness is the ability to hear, identify, and manipulate sounds. For example, skills such a rhyming, syllables, counting the number of words in a sentence, and isolating sounds are all phonological awareness skills. In this case, students look at two pictures and decide if they rhyme using Google Slides.

distance-learning-activities

Phonics is a major component in teaching children to read. In general, Google Slides makes it easy to drag/manipulate letters or type. Using Google Slides you can practice the alphabet, CVC words, blends, digraphs, and more!

google-classroom-for-kindergarten

Grammar is another literacy component that can be practiced using Google Slides. This set includes 3 different activities focusing on nouns and verbs. First, students look at an image. Then they drag a check mark to identify the image as a person, place, or thing. Next, students can sort 3 images by person, place, or thing. Finally, students look at an image and determine if it shows a noun or verb.

google-classroom-for-kindergarten

Must-Have Google Classroom for Kindergarten Math Activities

Kindergarten Math concepts fall into 5 categories: Counting & Cardinality, Operations & Algebraic Thinking, Numbers & Operations in Base Ten, Measurement & Data, and Geometry. Many of these concepts require concrete and hands-on practice. During distance learning and other circumstances, students may not have manipulatives available to them. Google Slides activities provide the opportunity to move and manipulate shapes, counters, etc. using a mouse or their finger. As a result, Google Slides provides hands-on exposure and helps increase engagement.

Counting & Cardinality

Counting & Cardinality is used daily, making it an essential skill. In general, Counting and Cardinality activities focus on numbers and counting. The following Google Slides activities allow students to practice counting and cardinality skills including number order and counting groups to tell how many.

google-slides-math-activities

Operations & Algebraic Thinking

In kindergarten, Operations & Algebraic Thinking focuses on addition and subtraction. Using different representations such as tallies, fingers, dice, and ten frames students can practice putting things together to add and build fluency.

google-slides-math-activities

Numbers & Operations in Base Ten

For Numbers & Operations in Base Ten students work to compose and decompose numbers 11-19 into tens and ones. Using Google Slides you can expose students to expanded form, number bonds, and base ten blocks.

google-slides-math-activities

Measurement & Data

For measurement and data students work to collect data, graph, and compare measurable attributes such as heavier, lighter, longer, shorter. There are many ways to practice these concepts with the use of Google Slides. Google Slides activities provide the opportunity to build a graph, analyze data on a graph, use images to practice nonstandard measurement, and look at images to compare their size, length, and height.

google-slides-math-activities

Within Geometry, kindergarten students work on identifying and naming 2D and 3D shapes. They also use 2D shapes to compose other shapes. If you don’t have enough shape blocks or access to shapes, digital shapes can help! Students can drag and turn shapes, using them to make new shapes with Google Slides.

Classroom Jobs for Kindergarten {Free Printable}

' src=

Classroom jobs for student s is a popular way of structuring tasks within a classroom. Kindergarten classroom jobs can take on a life of their own depending upon the teacher, teaching style and school building.

What types of jobs should a teacher have in her classroom? Well, I may not be able to answer this exactly for you , but I can hopefully give you some ideas by sharing mine and what works {and what doesn’t}.

KindergartenWorks :: Classroom Jobs for Kindergarten {Free Printable}

Elementary classroom jobs are a classic way for teachers to involve students in creating a sense of community, give them a sense of pride and teach responsibility. Plus, it can also alleviate the amount of work {truly} for a teacher.

Student jobs in the classroom can also be a source of frustration for the teacher when students are paired with jobs that are not a good fit.

Mostly I like them, LOVE them, when they work as intended but dislike figuring out the most sensible way of following through with jobs when not performed or completed.

So, with that being said, this is my opinion and you can share yours in the comments below!

What didn’t work

When I began teaching I had no bulletin boards {seriously} so I couldn’t create the typical “classroom helper” display that I had always seen as an example. Plus, who am I to be one that simply follows the example of every teacher before me.

Not my style, right?

So, I came up with the concept of choosing names, like picking sticks during our calendar time. The student chosen would complete the job card that I held up and place a picture-icon job card in their behavior pocket as a reminder for the day.

Every day they’d choose a new name and pass their job on.

KindergartenWorks :: Classroom Jobs for Kindergarten {Free Printable}

Why it didn’t work

Plain and simple it was the most difficult to follow through with because a student could go for a very long time without a job. This would make the likelihood of said students completing the job less likely since it wasn’t habitual or routine.

Therefore I had to be very good at reminding. Like every day.

While it “worked,” it didn’t really work for me. I value building independence much more. I stuck with this system for quite a few years because I couldn’t figure out a better way.

What does work

After reading Monica Schroeder’s post on how she rotates classroom jobs after 2 weeks and students “train” each other how to complete the tasks, I was sold .

Secondly, I found the concept of posting jobs above their cubbies ideal for me and my kinders. Out of the way and a great visual reminder!

Now we have “training day” every couple of weeks and it makes me smile when I can direct a student to another to ‘get trained’ should they have questions on when or how to complete the task.

KindergartenWorks :: Classroom Jobs for Kindergarten {Free Printable}

If I have a student who isn’t as proficient at a task, I can usually recall {since they keep the jobs for longer than a day} a more reliable one to buddy up with or recall someone who’s completed the job well before to be a replacement trainer.

This works well with students who have exceptions and different needs.

KindergartenWorks :: Classroom Jobs for Kindergarten {Free Printable}

I use velcro squares on the ends of the jobs I printed. My kindergarten classroom jobs printable isn’t super exciting, it is just what works for us.

The velcro holds the jobs in place and last all year despite pulling things in and out of cubbies multiple times a day.

KindergartenWorks :: Classroom Jobs for Kindergarten {Free Printable}

I numbered my jobs so that way I could have a student eventually help rotate them left to right and top to bottom and keep them in order.

This also helps us keep track if a student switches a job for a day as a reward coupon choice. I use it to take out jobs should the number of students in our classroom fluctuate.

KindergartenWorks :: Classroom Jobs for Kindergarten {Free Printable}

I also reward students with smelly spots for doing jobs without reminders since I find this very valuable! Inquiring readers want to know the list of jobs, eh?

Here is the classroom job list for my kinders… I prepare for 27. {{Eep!}}

Classroom jobs list

  • change centers ( rotate names )
  • morning checker (who is absent /didn’t register lunch count)
  • color checker (counts number of green days for a reward coupon )
  • table washer #1 (lunch) – these are spaced out so that each table at lunch will always have a washer
  • projector (turns on/off with remote)
  • lunch baskets (rolls in/out for lunch )
  • sandwich (counts # of sandwiches for lunch count)
  • hot lunch (counts # of lot lunches for lunch count)
  • ball chairs (ensure ball chairs are orderly)
  • closet (checks closet at end of day)
  • table washer #2 (lunch)
  • folder checker (checks papers in student folders have been filed properly)
  • library books (returns to library each morning)
  • lunch cards (returns cards from hot lunch purchases to cubbie pockets as pictured above)
  • computers (turns laptops on/off)
  • messenger (delivers a laminated pocket to office daily with any notes collected from my mailbox, flyers, return/tardy slips, etc.)
  • table washer #3 (lunch)
  • marble giver ( whole group reward /incentive)
  • sandwich tags (ensures those ordered sandwiches have a tag for easy lunchtime identification)
  • coupon organizer (returns used reward coupons )
  • table washer #4 (lunch)
  • math zones (flips workboard poster daily)
  • magnets (returns lunch/attendance magnets at end of day)
  • substitute (fills in when someone’s absent)
  • cushions (ensures library center cushions are orderly)
  • on vacation (takes a break)

[terms of use]   [downloading help]

I’m still working on finding the most sensible consequences to implement if a job is more time-sensitive because I think students should learn to be relied upon. There is great satisfaction for them to learn to be accountable.

It’s a life-long success principle and it starts here. Now, it’s your turn – tell me your thoughts!

Yes, the jobs on the cubbies would help give a sense of ownership, as well as act as a reminder. I love this! Plus it would help as a space saver, and cut down on the number of separate postings needed. Some classrooms have limited wall space, and some just have too much stuff on the walls.

You definitely listed all of the things I loved about this system being on their cubbies 🙂

Nevermind- I figured it out! For anyone else struggling to get the download I had to download Dropbox before I could view the tags. Then after downloading dropbox I could download the tags as a PDF document. Sorry for the confusion- maybe this post will help others that are struggles to download them.

Hi Molly, in the top right hand corner you can also choose “direct download” from the download menu. Though I can’t guarantee that it works on every school server 🙂 Thanks for sharing what worked for you. – Leslie

I’ve never seen jobs posted on students’ cubbies. Since my students keep their jobs for a week, this would be great for my classroom. I love how it saves space but is also great for the children- imagine how they must feel seeing their own job right there on their cubbies multiple times per day.

It works great for reminders! Thanks for sharing what you do Erin. Best wishes to you! – Leslie

12 Amazing Kindergarten Assessment Ideas

Move it, show it, mark it, and voice it!

Still of ruler and pencil kindergarten assessment

Just like a chef tastes the soup in order to adjust the seasonings, effective teachers need to actively monitor their students’ understanding. It’s more than just testing their knowledge. Teachers need to ultimately adapt their teaching to suit students’ needs. You want all of your students to be successful, that’s why these kindergarten assessment ideas are so important. Teaching remote? Don’t worry, we’ve got ideas for remote learning assessments too!

Gauge student learning while also giving your kindergartners an opportunity to move and wiggle.

1. Rocket Ship

After reading an assessment question and giving two to three possible answers, ask students to close their eyes. Repeat the question and ask students to stand as quietly as they can when they hear the answer they think is correct. Ask students to keep their eyes closed and stay standing until you say “Rocket launch!” Then everyone can open their eyes and jump like a rocket. While students are standing still with their eyes closed waiting to launch, it’s easy to take a few notes regarding individual student responses. Having students keep their eyes closed helps prevent peer influence.

2. Four Corners

Write possible answers on a whiteboard or use the letters A, B, C, and D to designate spaces in each corner of the room. Next, read out a question and ask students to move to the corner that corresponds to their answer. There are many ways to use this concept across the curriculum. For phonics instruction, the corners of the room could be labeled with phonemes the class is studying and students might have to listen for one of them in a word. For math, the corners could be labeled with different numbers as students practice recognizing numbers 1-100.

Not only does Four Corners get students up and moving, but the speed at which students move toward the correct answer can tell you a lot about how confident they are in their answers. Likewise, students who seem to be tagging along with other students are likely to need additional support in mastering the concept. If it seems like too many students are following others, have each student write down their answer before moving to the corner corresponding to their answer.

[contextly_auto_sidebar]

Gestures or visuals allow you to get a quick read on student understanding. They make the perfect kindergarten assessment strategies for your toolbox.

3. Thumbs Up, Thumbs Down

Before continuing on with a lesson, ask students to hold up a thumbs up, thumbs down, or a sideways thumb to indicate how they feel about their level of understanding. It’s helpful to hang a sign or anchor chart in the classroom to remind students of what each sign means:

  • Thumbs up = “I get it!” or “I can do it!”
  • Thumbs down = “I don’t get it!” or “I need help!”
  • Thumb to the side = “I kind of get it.” or “I could use some more practice.”

4. Sign Language

Teach your kindergartners how to sign the letters A, B, and C. Read a question aloud and give three possible answers, one for each letter. Ask students to wait to hear all responses. Now have students make the alphabet letter sign corresponding to the answer they chose. Instruct them to keep their letter sign in their lap until you call out “Eyes closed, letters up!” Once you’ve gauged the student responses, call out “Letters down and eyes on me!”

5. Color Cards

Give each student a set of three cards on a ring: one red, one yellow, and one green. Explain the meaning of each color card (listed below). As you teach a lesson, stop periodically to check in with students by asking them to show the colored card that reflects how they feel about their learning. Remind students that everyone learns at a different pace. As a community of learners, the goal is for everyone in the group to understand the lesson. It’s okay to show a red, yellow, or green card. Color cards can also be used during independent work time as a way for students to let their teacher know they need help. As the year progresses, invite students to support each other! Those who have green cards can help classmates displaying yellow and red cards.

  • Red = “Stop, I need help.”
  • Green = “Keep going, I understand.”
  • Yellow = “I’m a little confused.”

These assessment ideas make use of written/drawn responses, making them perfect for quiet times in the classroom.

6. Exit Tickets

Like pop quizzes, but without the “pop”, adding exit tickets to your weekly routine is a quick way to track student progress. Many kindergarten exit ticket templates exist online or you can create your own. Exit tickets can also be used prior to a lesson to gauge how much your students already know and then given again afterward to record how their understanding has grown.

7. Whiteboards

Give each student a small whiteboard and a marker. Ask students to draw or write their answers and then hold up their whiteboard. Scanning the room, it’s easy to see if students understand the material and which students need extra support.

Channel your students’ love of talking with these oral assessment ideas.

8. Pair and Share

Simple but effective! As students talk, move around the room to listen in on their conversations. Pair and shares can be used in a variety of ways including:

  • Taking turns to explain the concept that was just covered in the lesson
  • Asking a partner to share how they feel about their level of understanding and what questions they still have about the topic
  • Discussing a question posed by the teacher

9. Musical Match Up

Play a short sample of music while students move about the room. When the music stops, have students talk to the person nearest to them about what they learned in the lesson. Repeat this twice to create new pairings. As students talk, move throughout the room to listen in on conversations and ask your own questions.

Kindergarten Assessment Ideas for Online Learning

Take advantage of these great online tools and simple video call assessment ideas to gauge student learning while teaching remotely.

10. Black Out

Technology can be complicated, but this assessment idea for video calls is not! Students simply cover the camera on their computer with their finger to indicate their response to a multiple-choice question. In a grid view, it’s very easy to see what percentage of the class understands the concept being covered and which students could use more support.

Assessments that feel like games are a stress-free way to learn more about what your students know. Using Kahoot as an assessment tool can be as simple as setting up a quick game of 10 questions for students to complete independently. As a class, Kahoot can be used to create a game show styled event. Students can respond via the chat window of their video conference platform or by writing their answer on paper and then holding it in front of the camera.

Online learning platforms offer many easy ways to gather data on student learning through fun activities. Seesaw is a platform that works well with kindergartners and includes a library of thousands of activities for all subjects and levels.

Chesapeake teacher arrested for class assignment about killing a student

assignment for kg students

CHESAPEAKE, Va. — A class assignment to write about killing a student in a Chesapeake middle school got one teacher arrested, according to court records.

The News 3 Investigative Team continues to dig into situations where teachers that have gotten in trouble for bad behavior.

The incident happened in January 2022 inside of an English class at Crestwood Middle School in Chesapeake.

Investigations

Inappropriate behavior from teachers can cost them their license

News 3 recently learned about the arrest after a Freedom of Information Request to the Department of Education regarding teachers who lost their license in the state.

The class assignment was to write “ways to kill” one particular student in the class, according to court records. It states the idea for the assignment came from another student in the class, but the teacher went along with it.

The students reportedly pulled out their tablets and began to write various ways to kill the selected child in the class.

Documents outline how the ideas from the students included chopping him up, throwing him out the window, burning him alive and feeding him to a dog.

That night the child told his parents and authorities got involved.

Watch related story: Bad teacher: Inappropriate behavior from teachers can cost them their license

When asked by authorities why this happened, records state that the teacher said it was hard to engage the class and the student at the center of the assignment didn’t appear upset, but the teacher agreed it was an inappropriate assignment and told police it was an error in judgment.

The teacher pleaded guilty to one misdemeanor of contributing to the delinquency of a minor.

This was the statement from the Chesapeake School District after we reached out about the situation for comment:

The teacher “was employed as a teacher at Crestwood Middle School from August 31, 2020, through April 8, 2022. Our practice is that we do not comment further on such situations involving personnel. The safety of our students is our top priority, and Chesapeake Public Schools expects all employees to act with the utmost professionalism to provide a positive learning environment for all students.”

FBI looking into Tallwood student threatened online after News 3 story

The National Association of State Directors of Teacher Education and Certification, (NASDTEC) is a clearinghouse that helps identify red flags when teachers are applying for licenses across the country.

They report about 6,000 of the 3.5 million public school teachers get adverse action taken against their license for a wide variety of issues. In many cases, the teacher does not lose their license.

Troy Hutchings, NASDTEC Senior Policy Advisor, said the teacher might say something in class they shouldn't or have an inappropriate conversation.

Leaders at NASDTEC said there could be many reasons why a teacher gets adverse action taken against their license and rarely is it due to inappropriate sexual behavior.

teacher.png

Bill would require Va. teachers be paid at or above national average

NASDTEC offers a free preventative and correction online course for teachers and leaders nationwide that think there should be more emphasis on preventing problematic behavior before it happens.

NASDTEC Executive Director Jimmy Adams said Delaware has a good program in place for new teachers that help teach ethics and how to handle difficult situations that teachers are routinely put into.

Adams said he thinks every teacher should have to undergo a refresher class about professional ethics every five years.

They stress the vast majority of teachers are phenomenal people, who never get into trouble and are working to educate and inspire the children of America.

As for the teacher in Chesapeake, he surrendered his teaching license.

From 2022-2023, chronic absenteeism declined in 33 of the 39 states AEI looked at. But it was still a persistent problem: In a handful of places, including Nevada, Washington, D.C., Michigan, New Mexico and Oregon, roughly 1 in 3 students – or more – were chronically absent. LA Johnson/NPR hide caption

From 2022-2023, chronic absenteeism declined in 33 of the 39 states AEI looked at. But it was still a persistent problem: In a handful of places, including Nevada, Washington, D.C., Michigan, New Mexico and Oregon, roughly 1 in 3 students – or more – were chronically absent.

It's going to take aggressive interventions to repair the pandemic's destructive impact on kids' schooling.

That's the takeaway of two big new studies that look at how America's K-12 students are doing. There's some good news in this new research, to be sure – but there's still a lot of work to do on both student achievement and absenteeism. Here's what to know:

1. Students are starting to make up for missed learning

From spring 2022 to spring 2023, students made important learning gains, making up for about one-third of the learning they had missed in math and a quarter of the learning they had missed in reading during the pandemic.

That's according to the newly updated Education Recovery Scorecard , a co-production of Harvard University's Center for Education Policy Research and The Educational Opportunity Project at Stanford University.

6 things we've learned about how the pandemic disrupted learning

6 things we've learned about how the pandemic disrupted learning

The report says, "Students learned 117 percent in math and 108 percent in reading of what they would typically have learned in a pre-pandemic school year."

In an interview with NPR's All Things Considered , Stanford professor Sean Reardon said that's surprisingly good news: "A third or a quarter might not sound like a lot, but you have to realize the losses from 2019 to 2022 were historically large."

When the same team of researchers did a similar review last year, they found that, by spring of 2022, the average third- through eighth-grader had missed half a grade level in math and a third of a grade level in reading. So, the fact that students are now making up ground is a good sign.

These results do come with a few caveats, including that the researchers were only able to review data and draw their conclusions from 30 states this year.

2. Despite that progress, very few states are back to pre-pandemic learning levels

The Harvard and Stanford study of student learning includes one sobering sentence: "Alabama is the only state where average student achievement exceeds pre-pandemic levels in math." And average achievement in reading has surpassed pre-pandemic levels in just three of the states they studied: Illinois, Louisiana and Mississippi. Every other state for which they had data has yet to reach pre-pandemic levels in math and reading.

"Many schools made strong gains last year, but most districts are still working hard just to reach pre-pandemic achievement levels," said Harvard's Thomas Kane, one of the learning study's co-authors.

3. Chronic absenteeism also improved in many places ... slightly

The rate of chronic absenteeism – the percentage of students who miss 10% or more of a school year – declined from 2022 to 2023. That's according to research by Nat Malkus at the conservative-leaning American Enterprise Institute (AEI). He found chronic absenteeism declined in 33 of the 39 states he studied.

Yes, "the differences were relatively small," Malkus writes, but it's improvement nonetheless: "the average chronic absenteeism rate across these states in 2023 was 26 percent, down from 28 percent for the same 39 states in 2022."

Glass half-full: Things aren't getting worse.

4. But, again, chronic absenteeism is still high

Malkus found chronic absenteeism was at 26% in 2023. Before the pandemic, in 2019, those same states reported a rate of 15%. That adds some painful context to the "good news" two-point decline in absenteeism from 2022 to 2023. Sure, it's down, but it's still so much higher than it was and should be.

Think of it this way: In 2023, roughly 1 student out of 4 was still chronically absent across the school year.

In a handful of places, including Nevada, Washington, D.C., Michigan, New Mexico and Oregon, roughly 1 in 3 students – or more – were chronically absent. That's a crisis.

Research shows a strong connection between absenteeism and all kinds of negative consequences for students, including an increased likelihood of dropping out of school.

Chronic absenteeism also hurts the students who don't miss school. That's because, as the learning study's authors point out, when absent students return, they require extra attention and "make it hard for teachers to keep the whole class moving."

5. Poverty matters (as always)

Both the learning and the chronic absenteeism studies capture the headwinds that constantly buffet children in poverty.

"No one wants poor children to foot the bill for the pandemic," said Harvard's Kane, "but that is the path that most states are on."

On learning: Reardon told NPR "the pandemic really exacerbated inequality between students in high-poverty and low-poverty districts and students of different racial and ethnic backgrounds."

In 2023, students' academic recovery was relatively strong across groups, which is good – but it means "the inequality that was widened during the pandemic hasn't gotten smaller, and in some places it's actually gotten larger," Reardon told NPR.

In fact, the report says, "in most states, achievement gaps between rich and poor districts are even wider now than they were before the pandemic." The learning study singles out Massachusetts and Michigan as the states where those gaps in math and reading achievement widened the most between poor and non-poor students.

Similarly, Malkus, at AEI, found that, between 2019 and 2022, rates of chronic absenteeism rose much more in high-poverty districts (up from 20% to 37%) than in low-poverty districts (up from 12% to 23%).

"Chronic absenteeism has increased the most for disadvantaged students," Malkus writes, "those who also experienced the greatest learning losses during the pandemic and can least afford the harms that come with chronic absenteeism."

6. Families must play an important role in learning recovery

Both studies acknowledge that families must play an important role in helping students – and schools – find a healthy, post-pandemic normal. The problem is, surveys show parents and guardians often underestimate the pandemic's toll on their children's learning . "Parents cannot advocate effectively for their children's future if they are misinformed," says the learning study.

To combat this, the learning researchers propose that districts be required to inform parents if their child is below grade-level in math or English. Those parents could then enroll their students in summer learning, tutoring and after-school programs, all of which have benefitted from federal COVID relief dollars. That funding is set to expire this fall, and some of these learning recovery opportunities may dry up, so the clock is ticking.

7. There's a "culture problem" around chronic absenteeism

Reducing chronic absenteeism, Malkus says, will also depend on families.

"This is a culture problem," Malkus tells NPR. "And in schools and in communities, culture eats policy for breakfast every day."

By "culture problem," Malkus is talking about how families perceive the importance of daily attendance relative to other challenges in their lives. He says some parents seem more inclined now to let their students miss school for various reasons, perhaps not realizing the links between absenteeism and negative, downstream consequences.

"Look, the patterns and routines of going to school were disrupted and to some degree eroded during the pandemic," Malkus says. "And I don't think we've had a decisive turn back that we need to have, to turn this kind of behavior around, and it's going to stay with students until that culture changes."

How do you do that? Malkus points to some low-cost options — like texting or email campaigns to increase parental involvement and encourage kids to get back in school – but says these, alone, aren't "up to the scale of what we're facing now."

Higher-cost options for schools to consider could include door-knocking campaigns, sending staff on student home-visits and requiring that families of chronically absent students meet in-person with school staff.

The learning study goes one step further: "Elected officials, employers, and community leaders should launch public awareness campaigns and other initiatives to lower student absenteeism." Because, after all, students can't make up for the learning they missed during the pandemic if they don't consistently attend school now.

What both of these studies make clear is there is no one solution that will solve these problems, and success will require further investment, aggressive intervention and patience.

Malkus says, even the high-cost, high-return options will likely only drive down chronic absenteeism by about four percentage points. A big win, he says, "but four percentage points against 26% isn't going to get us where we need to go."

An El Paso County judge set a $5 million cash bond Tuesday for a University of Colorado Colorado Springs student accused of fatally shooting his roommate and another person inside a dorm room.

Prosecutors argued he still posed a threat to witnesses and students at the university.

Nicholas Jordan, 25, allegedly tried to flee the state before police found him inside a car about three miles from campus with a gun inside, prosecutors said during a hearing in a 4th Judicial District courtroom. 

“I think he still poses a threat to some of the witnesses and other folks for UCCS campus as well as the public in general,” Robert Willett with the 4th Judicial District Attorney’s Office said. “I think that he is a danger to the public and he is a flight risk.”

Police arrested Jordan, of Detroit, on Monday morning, three days after UCCS student Samuel Knopp and Celie Montgomery were found dead inside a dorm room on campus. Jordan, who was a registered student and Knopp’s roommate, faces two counts of first-degree murder, police said. 

With his hands cuffed behind his back and wearing an orange jumpsuit, Jordan stood next to his public defender for the 8-minute hearing. 

Further details on the shooting were not released, and Judge Shannon Gerhart declined to unseal Jordan’s arrest warrant, meaning it cannot be released to the public.

Prosecutors’ safety concerns clashed with assurances by Colorado Springs police and university officials that there was no threat to the campus after the killings of Knopp and Montgomery. 

Police instead called the shooting  “an isolated incident” and declined to address questions, including about the suspect, his possible motive or his connection to the university.

The department was in “close communication” with UCCS police, university officials and the victims’ families on Friday and over the weekend, a CSPD spokesperson said Tuesday. “If we felt there was any larger threat to the community from this suspect, we would have made that known threat known,” Ira Cronin, a spokesperson said.

University officials placed the campus on a brief lockdown and reiterated there were no safety concerns to faculty or students. 

Campus police found Knopp and Montgomery inside a dorm room Friday after receiving a call of shots fired about 6 a.m. Both had “at least one gunshot wound,” Colorado Springs police said. 

University officials said Knopp, 24, was studying music and was a “beloved member” of the visual and performing arts department. Montgomery, 26, was not a registered UCCS student. 

Jordan’s next court appearance is scheduled for Friday morning.

Teacher assigned students to write ‘ways to kill’ a classmate

The incident happened at Crestwood Middle School in Chesapeake, Virginia in January 2022 (

A middle school teacher has been arrested after giving her students an assignment to write about killing a classmate.

The assignment directed students to come up with ‘ways to kill’ one particular pupil within the English class at Crestwood Middle School in Chesapeake, Virginia, according to court records obtained by WTKR on Wednesday.

It was a student’s idea, but the teacher ran with it, the documents state. The students proceeded to work on the assignment on their tablets.

The students’ ideas for killing the student included burning him alive, chopping him, throwing him out the window and giving him to a dog to eat, per the records.

The teacher in Chesapeake, Virginia, surrendered his teaching license

On that night in January 2022, the boy shared the assignment with his parents, who informed authorities.

Questioned on the incident, the teacher explained that the student who was the subject of the assignment did not seem upset by it. The teacher added that it was difficult to engage the students, but admitted that the assignment was not appropriate and should not have been carried out.

The teacher has pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor count of contributing to a minor’s delinquency.

Beside being arrested, the teacher surrendered his license to instruct. He has not been identified.

The teacher was employed at the middle school from August 2020 to April 2022, according to the Chesapeake School District.

‘Our practice is that we do not comment further on such situations involving personnel,’ stated the school district.

‘The safety of our students is our top priority, and Chesapeake Public Schools expects all employees to act with the utmost professionalism to provide a positive learning environment for all students.’

He was let go more than a year before a kindergartner wrote a story in class about her mother firing a gun in a fight with her father. The teacher at Donelson Elementary School in Arlington, Tennessee, reported possible child abuse, which led to the mother’s arrest.

Teacher arrested for class assignment about ‘ways to kill’ one of his students.

Thanks for contacting us. We've received your submission.

A Virginia teacher was arrested and had to give up his license after he gave his class an assignment asking them to come up with different “ways to kill” one of his students, it has emerged.

The unidentified Crestwood Middle School teacher instructed his students to write how they would kill one particular student in the class in January 2022, according to court documents obtained by WTKR Thursday.

The documents state that the assignment came from another student in the class, but the teacher went along with it.

Students then reportedly pulled out their tablets and dutifully listed ways to kill the selected classmate, with court documents describing how the students came up with ideas to chop him up, throw him out a window, burn him alive, and feed him to a dog.

Police became aware of the incident after the bullied child went home that night and told his parents, according to WTKR.

During an ensuing investigation, police reportedly asked what could have prompted the teacher to come up with the writing exercise — to which he said it was hard to engage the class, and the student at the center of the assignment didn’t appear to be upset by it at the time, records show.

The teacher went on to admit it was an inappropriate class assignment and said it was an error in judgment.

He later pleaded guilty to one misdemeanor count of contributing to the delinquency of a minor and voluntarily surrendered his teaching license, according to WTKR, which has been digging into the reasons teachers have lost their licenses throughout the state.

The Chesapeake School District said the teacher was employed at the school from Aug. 31, 2021, through April 8, 2022.

In a statement to the local news station, school district officials said they would not comment further “on such situations involving personnel.

The Post has also reached out to the Chesapeake School District for more information.

Rantz: Seattle English students told it’s ‘white supremacy’ to love reading, writing

Jason Rantz's Profile Picture

BY JASON RANTZ

The Jason Rantz Show, 3pm-7pm on KTTH

Students in a Seattle English class were told that their love of reading and writing is a characteristic of “white supremacy,” in the latest Seattle Public Schools high school controversy. The lesson plan has one local father speaking out, calling it “educational malpractice.”

As part of the Black Lives Matter at School Week, World Literature and Composition students at Lincoln High School were given a handout with definitions of the “9 characteristics of white supremacy,” according to the father of a student. Given the subject matter of the class, the father found it odd this particular lesson was brought up.

The Seattle high schoolers were told that “Worship of the Written Word” is white supremacy because it is “an erasure of the wide range of ways we communicate with each other.” By this definition, the very subject of World Literature and Composition is racist. It also chides the idea that we hyper-value written communication because it’s a form of “honoring only what is written and even then only what is written to a narrow standard, full of misinformation and lies.” The worksheet does not provide any context for what it actually means.

“I feel bad for any students who actually internalize stuff like this as it is setting them up for failure,” the father explained to the Jason Rantz Show on KTTH.

Everything is ‘white supremacy’ at Seattle Public Schools

The father asked to remain anonymous for fear of retribution against his child by Seattle Public Schools. He said the other pieces of the worksheet were equally disturbing.

The worksheet labels “objectivity,” “individualism,” and “perfectionism” as white supremacy. If students deny their own racism — or that any of the nine characteristics are legitimately racist — is also white supremacy. Denialism or being overly defensive is a racist example of an “entitlement to name what is an [sic] isn’t racism and that those with power have a right to be shielded from the stresses of antiracist work.”

The father argues the concepts are “incoherent and cannot stand any sort of reasoned analysis.” And he notes that it’s set up to ensure students accept every concept without ever questioning the claims.

“How is a 15-year-old kid supposed to object in class when ‘denial and defensiveness’ is itself a characteristic of white supremacy? This is truly educational malpractice.”

White students told to apologize in yet another Seattle high school controversy

Another aspect of the white supremacy lesson at this Seattle school involved a video titled “Getting Called Out: How to Apologize” by Franchesca Ramsey. It’s reportedly presented in the context of white students expressing what the teacher views as “white supremacy.”

“Getting called out, in this context of this video, is when you say or do something that upholds the oppression of a marginalized group of people,” Ramsey says.

Ramsey says her advice is about becoming an ally and “doing the right thing.” She explains you shouldn’t “get defensive” by denying you’re oppressing marginalized people, even if you’re not actually oppressing marginalized people.

“What you really need to do is listen because this is where the other person is hopefully going to explain to you what you did wrong and how you can explain it,” she says.

In the context of the worksheet on white supremacy, it seems clear that students must merely accept that they are upholding oppression. Using the worksheet, if a student defends independence or a love of reading and writing, that student is supposed to accept that it’s white supremacist thinking and stop acting independently or loving to read and write.

Father says Seattle Public Schools isn’t serving students

The father says he taught his son to be on the lookout for this kind of Radical Left indoctrination. It’s why his son flagged the worksheets to him. But he notes that the curriculum doesn’t exactly help his kid on the subject he’s supposed to be learning.

“My problem with this curriculum is that this is supposed to be a writing and literature class and lessons like these do nothing to help my kid become a better writer,” the father explained. “I’m sure Lincoln administration will point to the high ELA proficiency scores but the high proportion of HCC [highly capable] kids (40% of the student body) is a big factor. With so many smart, hard working kids (white supremacists) it’s easy to support these luxury beliefs but system-wide only 63% of kids are proficient in English. Is this really the best use of class time? ”

The father also wonders how many students will fall for this toxic thinking across Seattle schools where concepts around white supremacy are so clearly partisan.

“I feel bad for any students who actually internalize stuff like this as it is setting them up for failure,” he said.

Seattle Public Schools spokespeople provided their normal response to requests for comment: none.

‘How do white supremacy characteristics show up in your personal lives?’ was a question in a worksheet given to Lincoln High students.
