  • My son is a little old for this age group, but some things never change!! He hates homework! This year (5th grade) is the first year that I feel like he is making progress- he starts it on his own and does some of it on his own before starts "needing" help!

  • My 5 year old is into it now because this is his first year of getting homework and it is exciting to him. My 9 year old, not so much!
