We all are feeling the excitement as summer break approaches but there is another thing on most teachers’ minds… keeping skills sharp while the kids are away. This Kindergarten Summer Homework pack of math and literacy activities will keep your students learning while still having fun over break. The kids will love the variety of engaging, summer-themed printable activities so much, it won’t even feel like “homework.” So let’s bring on the summer fun!
Kindergarten Summer Homework
If you’re already thinking about gathering resources that review Kindergarten standards, then this Kindergarten Summer Homework pack is exactly what you are looking for. It will help keep students learning over the long break and requires little to no prep – just print and that’s it! Plus, all activities are in black and white and require no color ink or laminating so they can be ready in a pinch.
This HUGE pack of summer-themed activities contains 91 pages of low-prep math and literacy printables designed for Kindergarten students in the summer before 1st grade.
Turning this resource pack into a summer workbook for kids to take home? Simply attach the included cover page and print 2-sided to use less paper. The pages that require cutting and pasting are at the end of the download for this reason (so as not to cut/paste on a double sided page).
It also includes a reading log and a tracking sheet for students to color in each time they complete a page!

Looking for an activity that strengthens multiple skills? This is definitely for you! These letter trace printables provide practice for many skills like counting, subitizing, letter recognition, and writing.
Students roll the dice, count the dots, and trace the letters in the matching row. So simple and so fun. This activity includes two versions for both uppercase and lowercase!
Rhyming by the Sea
It is important to keep scissor skills “sharp” over the long summer break and this Rhyming by the Sea activity will help your kids do that while also practicing CVC words and rhyming.
For this activity, kids read the words on the buckets and cut and glue the rhyming words on the shovels that match. This themed printable will bring the beach fun straight to your students.
My kids are always excited for graphing games and activities so I know this summer-themed graphing printable will be a hit. They also love coloring so this activity is definitely a win-win!
The directions are simple. Count the fun summer items and color in the graph. Then the kids can discuss the results with a grown-up, using the questions at the bottom of the page.
Show and Tell
If there is one skill I hope my students continue to practice over break it is reading (even if it’s just a little bit each day). Short simple stories like the one on this Show and Tell printable will keep your kids engaged and excited to read.
This activity is a hit because after the students read the story on the page, they get to illustrate it. There is also a short and simple question for them to answer at the end.
