Last night my son did 30 problems, 6 word problems and had to write a text to self connection(3-5 sentences) after reading a book. It took us an two and half hours with all the arguing and melt-downs. Asperger's aside isn't this a bit much for a 6 year old? I mean I don't like homework anyway so I have no basis of comparison. Monday he has to write 10 sentences and do a math work sheet with 20 problems. (We get a weekly calendar of assignments) Weekends he just has to read for 20 min a day. No biggy there we do that anyway!

OP that seems like way too much. I taught first grade last year and would never put that work load on the kids. They took spelling lists home on Monday, and were asked to study those, along with sight words, a little each night. Every Wednesday they took their reading books home and were asked to read the story of the week with an adult. On TU and TH they would have 1 math worksheet. If there was ever something that didn't get done in class, I may have sent it home.
