These math and literacy worksheets can be used to supplement your curriculum, reteach, and provide more opportunities to brush up on skills. Plus, they make learning fun!

Skill Checks and Student Portfolios
It's important to do quick skill check-ins with your students throughout the year. This helps you see if they've mastered the skill, are on their way to mastering, or need extra practice.
Grab a no prep kindergarten worksheet to assess your students' skill level. Then, you can add the activity to your student's portfolio.
This is a great data point that can help you see their progress and make decisions. These are perfect to pull out during parent conferences or meetings too.
No prep math and literacy worksheets are great to send home with students for at-home practice. This encourages parent involvement and a school-home connection.
Since these worksheets only require basic supplies like pencils, crayons, and scissors, they're a great at-home activity option.
You can also send these home with students to use as extra practice over long breaks. If a child is out sick and can't participate in classroom activities, you can send these home to help them keep up their skills.
