This 36 page packet is intended as a review exercise for kindergarteners to complete over the break, prior to entering first grade (or during the first few weeks of 1st grade). The majority of this packet is aligned with Common Core State Standards. There are also a few introductory skills for first grade. The entire packet is in black and white- perfect for reproducing. The kids will enjoy coloring the images as well!
