How much or how often do they have homework?
It is quiet interesting how they do homework in my daughter's class. They have a chart with four stars each day from Monday thru Thursday. The kids have to set a goal of how many stars they will try to do each week of homework. Each star gets colored in for one homework item. There is then another sheet with the list of things they can do for homework in each area, which the areas are reading, writing, math, and spelling. Each area has several different tasks listed they can work on. For example, the math currently has count 0 -120, count to 100's by 2's 5's or 10's, do addition and/or subtraction facts without counting on fingers, and work on odd and even numbers. When they complete one activitiy they get to color in a star and highlight what area they completed. This list changes only every other month. I am curious to see if they will be getting any other kind of homework besides this, because I think doing the same things the rest of August and all of September is going to get very boring for my daughter quickly.
Today is only the 4th day but so far all she has to do is read any book from home or library to me everyday and go over her 10 vocabulary words for the week like last year.She also has a list of Dolch Pre-Primer sight vocabulary word that we go over. There are 40 words. She already has known them all since kindergarten
yesterday she brought home a reading book with a story in it that she had to read to me. She will bring it home again tomorrow and read it to me. Thats what we are doing this week. Not sure if she will have any homework this weekend besides reading.
Today she brought home two library books to read by tomorrow and also the short little story in a reading book that the class is working on this week
My son is supposed to read for 10 minutes each night. The past 2 days he's brought home a math workbook page to go along with their math lesson for that day. Each page only took him about 5 minutes to complete.
Mine haven't started homework yet but if it's like Kinder, they will have a math sheet and a reading sheet every day along with writing practice, reading and a science and math calendar.
Monday - Thursday he has to read for 20 minutes, and he has a page of math homework and a page of ELA homework.
