Thanksgiving homework packet

I don't know about y'all.. but I've got some serious Thanksgiving fever!

Do you send home work for your students to complete over the break? I was thinking about what I was going to do this year- usually we make a little packet up with a few printable pages and then ask them to write a thing of two. As I was getting started, I figured I would whip up a little packet of homework for the fall season. A little late to the party, right?! LOL Well.. next year! I guess I will start tomorrow on the Christmas pack :) 

Well, anyway.. we send homework home every week. Most of the time it is something simple like "count to 100 by 10's and 1's" or "count and compare how many forks and spoons you have" but sometimes we do send home a worksheet or two for parents to complete with their child. None of the homework takes more than 10-15 minutes to complete. I like the parent involvement it takes AND parents get to see exactly where their child excels or struggles. 

I send a newsletter each week that looks like this:
If you want to grab the free template for this newsletter, download the product preview HERE {green bar that says "preview" and you will just add text in the text boxes.

My students all have punch cards that I use like sticker charts- once they fill up 20 punches, they get to choose from the coupon box. Each night of homework equals 1 punch. Sometimes, if I send home an extra special project they receive more than 1 punch (like turkeys in disguise- it's a lot of work!)
I always reinforce skills for homework that we have been working on at home- nothing like a little extra practice, right?!
These printable sheets could easily be used for morning work or station rotations (or a SUB!!) 
If you'd like to check out the packet they're from, click on the picture below:
Now...because I'm so late they are on sale for the rest of November.
