Kindergarten – A handy set of grade appropriate worksheets for substitute teachers to use.

At the kindergarten level there are so many skills we are trying to help students achieve. It often starts with helping students to form social skills that encourage them to have good manners and adjust to new situations and changes throughout their day. We help them to respect others and how to interact appropriately. Above all we try to help them learn how to enjoy life and share it with others around them. As we get into the academic side of things at the kindergarten level, we are trying to help students learn to describe objects and be able to group objects based on characteristics that they decide upon. Kindergarten language arts skills start with helping students communicate using sentences, ask questions, and express themselves with descriptive language. Kindergarten readers start with picture books and learn to read English left to right. We start working on common sight words and start to recognize sounds that consonants and vowels make. The Kindergarten math curriculum focuses a great deal on comparing things by size and number and arranging comparisons. We also begin our number sense and recognize the numbers 1 to 10. We have put together a nice package of lesson plans for substitute teachers that may have stumbled across teaching a Kindergarten class.

The following worksheets can be left for a substitute teacher if you have to be out of the classroom for a day or more. Each sheet has an activity that fits within the Kindergarten curriculum, including subjects such as simple math, beginning language skills, writing practice, art, and more. These worksheets can also be used as part of a standard lesson plan, extra credit work, quiet time activities, and more. Please note that in some cases, answer keys have been provided. These must be printed separately, as they are not included with the main page.
