My dau (3rd grade) had Fri off for a Teacher Work Day, then today for MLK day. I was shocked when she brought home homework! Do your kids gets weekend homework? If so, how often?

  • My 5th grader does occasionally. I have no idea when she has homework. She doesn't have an assignment book and half the time she says she finishes it at school. She rarely does homework (maybe twice a week).
    My 3rd grader gets a packet of homework on Monday and it is due the next Monday and he chooses to do half of it on the weekend (he does a little each day after school but there's always more for the weekend...if he wants to screw around and lose his Sunday evenings playing outside that's his choice).
    My 2nd grader never gets homework on weekends. Her homework packet comes home on Monday and is due on Friday.

  • My kids got some long term work to do starting in 4th grade. So, they did work on it over the weekends. They always had 20 minutes of reading per day. They didn't get work sheets or other busy work.

  • My 3rd grader almost never gets homework on the weekend. He has some reading to do this weekend, which I am fine w/ because we had 2 snow days last week & a day off today for MLK Day.

  • My 5th grader has homework every night, including weekends and holidays - averages about 2 1/2 hours a nite. It's insane the amount of homework she gets and she's a straight-A student so I know it's just filler; not her not understanding the work.

  • My 6th grader rarely has homework. My 8th grader has a bit more. Sometimes on the weekends, sometimes on weeknights.
