Hidden Color Words
On this page, the student must find a color word hidden inside a group of letters. He will write the letter twice, and also use that color to shade the crayon. This first grade worksheet gives lots of valuable repetition, while connecting words and ideas.

Tips on Using First Grade Homework Worksheets
1. Make sure worksheets can be successfully completed without any extra resources and instructions.
2. Assign worksheets that reinforce important skills you're teaching in the classroom. It's okay to give fun pages; just make sure that pages aren't "busy work."
3. Don't overdo it! Just give 1-2 worksheets at a time, and not every day of the week.
4. Expect students to bring their completed pages back to school in a timely manner. Make it clear when the paper is due back on your desk. Write that date on the page, if possible.
5. Reinforce responsible behavior with a sticker, words of praise, or some other recognition.

If you are looking for a way to get your students excited and engaged by spelling homework, this pack is for you! Included are four unique spelling grids, each with twelve different spelling homework options that will engage all types of learners. Students choose one homework activity to complete each night, Monday through Thursday. A parent initials a box on the grid for each completed activity and students staple written work to the back of their grids before turning in on Friday.
There is a slight increase in the level of difficulty of the activities from the first grid to the last grid. This allows you to gradually increase the challenge of your homework from the start of the school year to the end of the school year or to quickly and easily differentiate your assignments.
