Unfortunately ds7 had to go to a private school this year because I have to finish clinicals and can't afford a sitter, and I'm homeschooling ds6 which is like the equivalent of 10 kids.  It's only day 7 and I'm already sick of it.  The school is actually really good but I can't stand all the homework they get!  I picked him up at 3 and with the amount of homework he has, he will have time for a short break then spend the rest of the night doing homework and reading.  Reading, 1 math sheet, 1 language arts sheet and 2 cursive handwriting sheets.  WHAT is the POINT of school if you aren't going to do all the teaching there?!?!?!?!  

frustrated


On that note - if someone would like to donate money so I can send him to a sitter, please do.  ;) wink

I dont understand that much homework for such a young child.  It makes no sense to me.

What makes it more aggrivating is that its stuff he knows so its a waste of time and pointless.

That makes me mad when they do that.  I talked to the teacher when my dd6 was in public school and asked if she had to have homework if I could give her something more diffucult.  There is no need for our kids to do things they already know.

I wish I could help ya out in some way. Unfortunatly, that is part of the life of a public/private schooled kid. I remember in high school, sitting up till midnight finishing homework.

Did the teacher agree to that?

Yes she did.  She also let me send workbooks for her incase she got bored in class, so she could work at her own level.  But my dd was very disruptive when she was bored.  I know me talking to her everyday and being aware of my childs needs helped her come to the decision. 

I also wrote her a note detailing my dd6's accomplishments by age and her strengths and weaknesses.  I did this because she was reading and adding and subtracting without pictures for almost a year before kindergarten.  I dont know is she is gifted to this day I havent had her tested yet.  But it helped the teacher see more what she needed.  They also let her go up sometimes to first grade reading, but she had to remember and watch the time.  If she was late she couldnt go.  The teacher didnt tell her when it was time.

Seriously, in the time it takes to do all the homework, you're spending the same amount of time as if you were homeschooling.
