It's now an hours worth everyday. Poor thing couldn't grasp her new vocabulary words tonight. She ended up in tears. I ended up putting it away until later. They have standardized testing all week so I don't want her upset over math vocabulary.
I'm curious, how much did your kds have when they were in kindergarten?

The poor kid. While they are like little sponges absorbing all types of knowledge, I think they are throwing a lot of work on these kids. What my dau is doing in math in the 5th grade, my son had in the 8th grade. They even introduced Shakespeare to them. When she was in Kindergarten, she had 1-2 work sheets & 20 mins. of reading. Last week, it took her 1 1/2 hours to do all her HW. Crazy. They have Spring Break coming up soon, so we get a bit of a break. Give her a hug & tell her she did enough for the day. :) Maybe practice for a bit in the morning before school, when she's rested.
