This school year I introduced a new send-home activity, weekly homework pouches. They are full of simple, yet engaging games kids can play with their families all week!
-Making letters out of play-doh
-Matching colors and color words
-Using beans for counting with five and ten frames
All twenty of the games stengthen math, literacy, or fine motor skills. They were handmade with items I already had or bought at the Dollar Tree and hopefully inspire families to make some activities at home! They include English and Spanish instructions and a challenge for higher-level students. They seem to have been a fun addition to homework time for my littles and their parents!
