No Prep Kindergarten Printables for the Entire Year

As a kindergarten teacher there is so.much.to.do! Unlike older students where textbooks and lecture fill the class period, the primary grades are filled with lots of hands-on practice activities. We tend to teach in mini-lessons in order to keep students’ attention and provide lots of time to practice new skills. But I’m here to help you with a lesson that took me a long time to learn . . . you can’t do it all – but you don’t have to! It’s important to find ways to balance your time so that you don’t burn yourself out. Sure, it’s great to have those five star lessons and classroom transformations – but that just can’t be sustained day in and day out. Today I want to share a secret that helped me save my time and my sanity without sacrificing the skills practice my students needed. Let’s talk about no prep kindergarten printables.

What is a No Prep Printable?

No Prep Kindergarten Printables are skills based practice activities.

A printable might also be called a worksheet – but not the busy-work kind. Printables are like worksheets that have been amped up or centers activities that have been altered. These printable activities provide a no prep option for providing students with multiple opportunities to practice a new skill.

How do I use printables?

There are so many different ways to use these kindergarten printables in the classroom. These printable activities can be printed black and white and completed as a class. They make a great practice activity or an informal assessment to see how students are doing with a skill or concept. But we don’t have to stop there! You can also use printables as center activities! Yep – just print them out on cardstock and laminate them to use as centers. Need an at home practice activity for home learning or homework? Printables are great for that too!

And . . . if you want to be the super organized and prepared teacher, copy some no prep printable activities to add to your sub folder! No more worrying about making last minute sub plans when you aren’t feeling well. A beginning of the year set, middle of the year set and end of the year set will provide you with ready-to-go sub plans any time of the year!

No Prep Printables for kindergarten provide math and literacy activities with a monthly theme

Monthly Kindergarten Printables

Over the years I have put together a variety of printable activities to help my students master the skills and concepts we were learning. I have sifted and sorted through all those activities looking for the very best ones. Then I put them into sets to coordinate with the skills and concepts taught each month using a traditional kindergarten scope and sequence.

A little tweaking and designing and the monthly no prep printables were born!

What do the Resources Include?

The No Prep Printables are divided into monthly sets that include skills practice for math and literacy skills in kindergarten. But don’t worry about this just being repetitive and boring skills practice. Who has time for that?!? These fun and engaging activities weave in writing, coloring, cutting and pasting to engage students. Add in a little seasonal fun and you have activities that your students will love!
