My son gets up to 4 pages a day. friday theres no hw. it would take him an hr to do. so the teacher told me 15 mins and then whatever he doesn't finish he'll have to do during free time. Nico crys and he trys as hard as he can to finish it at home. He told me if mr. mead gets mad and tells him not to give mommy a hard time. Math is his weak point. He's in Special education and i've spoken to his teacher about limiting hw. They said they want him to do what he's capable of doing. but that means losing free time if he shuts down and i can't get him to do it?

Kev gets about 30 mins of homework daily. Usually about 3-4 sheets along with 15 mins of reading.

❤ Big Thanks to Vicki, trishosaurus, & Shortcake for the great siggies of my kids! ❤

Courtney would get 4 sheets a night last year. This year however not normally any sheets, she's supposed to spend 20 minutes reading a night, plus on Wednesday we have religion homework. Yesterday we spent over an hour doing homework, but she had been out of school for 2 days prior to that. Courtney actually often asks to do more than her required time of homework...It is supposed to be 10 minutes per grade, so 10 minutes for a first grader, it is sad if they are giving him so much he's really upset by it

Brayden's teachers leave his homework very vague. He is given spelling words, reading homework and what math he is learning for the week but when i asked how much time we should be spending each night on it the teacher said "whatever you want" this bothers me a little because I feel like they have this expectation that kids should be so far in their learning but offer no guidance on how to help them at home. I admit Christen's link for spelling as gotten us a lot farther with his spelling than any of the homework he has been given so far this year....so Thanks Christen.
Thank you Patty for my awesomy siggy!

Sorry to hear that they aren't living up to your expectations, I think Courtney's school has done great, she's come a long way in only one quarter.
