Kindergarten at Home – Week One


I’ve heard from so many kindergarten teachers like you whose schools are closing indefinitely because of the coronavirus and they need an easy way to keep kids engaged and learning at home.

Rather than scrambling to pull together just-right activities for your students each week, I’m excited to give you a simple solution: a pack of school at home activities your students can complete on their own.

And since we know that some families won’t have access to printers, I made sure to include plenty of printable-free learning options so that every child can participate.



–> A teacher letter you can copy and paste in an email to quickly explain your plan to families.

–> A weekly checklist giving kids 25 simple (and fun!) ways to stay engaged and learning.

–> 5 print-and-play activities families can print off at home. This week works on beginning letter and digraph sounds, sight words, addition to 10, subtraction within 10, 2-dimensional shapes, 3-dimensional shapes and fine motor skills.




1. Simply copy and paste the teacher letter into an email you’ll send out to students’ families on the same day each week. (Sundays work well because families have time to map out when they’ll do each activity.)

2. Make sure to attach the student packet to the email and then hit “send”.

3. On Friday, students’ families will send you a quick note letting you know how many of the activities they were able to finish. The weekly check in is a great chance to connect with kids who may be feeling unsettled about the unexpected separation so we encourage you to take a couple of minutes to reply with a personal note of congratulations.

4. If your school will be closed again the following week, grab the next pack in the set and repeat steps 1-3. I promise to publish new packs by Thursday so that you have plenty of time to get them in students’ hands.

And as we go along, if you have a specific skill or theme you’d like to see in a weekly pack, please drop me a quick note and we’ll add it to the list. We are in this together!

“This has saved me *so much* time pulling together resources for my students’ families! I wanted to make it really simple for them so that they would feel confident taking over the teaching these next few weeks and I loved that the pack included a variety of ideas so my families could pick and choose what would work best for them. Between downloading the pack, copying the teacher letter and activity pack into an email and hitting “send”, it took about 5 minutes. And now I know my kids are going to be learning this week. It’s such a huge relief! Thank you so much! You have saved my sanity!” – Ellie F.


“This resource was a lifesaver. I sent it home for each student along with my ideas for using the activities in this packet (along with things they may have at home) to address each student’s IEP goals.” – Lori B.


“I loved being able to send this electronically to parents when we had to shut down so rapidly! The choice items are so wonderful to help parents feel in control.” – Holly R.
