2 Quick & Easy Resources for Homework Packets

You want to, or in many cases, need to send home homework each week for your students. I know, the homework balance is so hard. How do you send home something that students can do on their own, in a short amount of time, that reinforces the concepts you’re learning in class? What you DON’T have is time to spend hours on the internet, scouring for activities to use, or make lots of homework packets yourself.

That is why I have two quick and easy resources for homework packets. All you have to do is purchase these packets, print them out, and have your kids complete the activities. You won’t have to plan a thing!

36 Weeks of Skills Practice Bundles

When we released our 8 weeks of At Home Learning Bundles in the Spring of 2020, we had lots of teachers ask if we’d be extending them beyond 8 weeks. Some teachers wanted to use them for weekly homework packets, but they needed a lot more than 8 weeks for that! The good news is, that option is now HERE with the 36 Weeks of Skills Practice Bundle! If you send homework packets, this is a great option to use for that! 

This bundle is perfect as homework packets because you can differentiate for students’ needs, depending on what skills they need to work on. You will have so many content options that cover homework for the entire school year!
