i never thought my child had a lot of kindergarten homework, or that it was too challenging or time consuming. i remember they were required to read for 15 minutes a night (except fridays, no homework on fridays) do a math sheet (usually front and back, sometimes 2 of them) and writing sight words on tuesdays and thursdays. without the reading bit she'd get her homework done in 20-30 minutes.
well she started 1st grade today and apparently kindergarten homework was a boatload compared to what she's getting this year. first, the homework is all due on friday, instead of nightly like in K. they are not REQUIRED to read, as in, there is no reading log that you have to fill out (of course parents could lie, but i never did when it came to that) its just 'highly recommended' that they read everyday. then there is only 1 subject addressed per night. monday-writing, tuesday-math, etc.
atleast the behavior policy is still in place, they use a clip and color system.
im just not happy with the lack of homework, but, maybe the material itself will atleast be challenging for her. she needs to be challenged because her birthday falls a month after the deadline so she'll always be among the older students, turning 7 in october. she was already getting bored in K with the amount of work she was required to do then.
