Reasonable expectation?

Anonymous

I've been working with DS to get him ready for kinder, we have some short worksheets (most are 3-4 lines, the numbers one are 2 lines to write numbers then 2 lines to write the number out, the word lines each have enough room to fit the word 1-3 times max) We have several books/sheets so multiple pages for each letter and number. 
Curious, how many pages/day would be a reasonable expectation for a 5 yr old? There are some fun pages thrown in there too, like color, count, draw, connect the dots, etc

Whatever he can handle. My little sister is 6 and I bought her a ton of books for getting ready for school when she was 4 and 5. She liked to do them and would usually do 2-4 pages a day. She sometimes would do an entire section by herself if she liked the section. I know she really liked the ones where she got to circle stuff.   :)

As long as he is still interested keep going. Some days mine will only do five others he will do 15 or more.

i would agree with PP 2-4 pages a day depending whats on them, and do a reward system  along with it.

I would say set a time over a certain number of pages

I would say 2 pages.

Also, go on starfall.com ! It's great for learning to read. Give the kid 20 minutes on that a day.

He won't even finish one page.... Today he did half a line then scribbled across the rest of the page >.< Before that we did a count and circle page that was 3 "questions" long

He's been showing ZERO interest, can't even get him to do one page this week

 IDK, I never made the kids do worksheets before K. They seemed pretty proficient after preschool so I saw no need.

I tried reward system but it didn't help any, I've tried different rewards each time even letting him pick the reward and he refuses to do any of it :/ He starts school in just over a month, I don't want to push him too much but I want him to do at least a page a day along with other small play learning activities.
