Neighborhood Activities

This week the homework will center on neighborhood activities. The activities are appropriate for K-3, except as noted. Feel free to copy, cut, and paste the assignments into your own word processor for sending home (or print this page).

Day 1

A neighborhood is the area around where the children live. On this first day of neighborhood homework activities, ask the children to write or dictate a description of what their neighborhood is like. Type up the responses and make a book for the children to read.

Day 2

Ask the children to make a list of five places in their neighborhood where people can spend money and a list of five places they can go for free.

Day 3

Have the children find something in your neighborhood that is interesting or different. Draw a picture of it to share with the class.

Day 4

Write (or dictate) the names of three people in your neighborhood. Think of two positive things about each person and write them down to share with the class.
