Georgia has a bad reputation when is comes to education yet I have friends in other states whose kids are learning slower then they do here but when they get to high school they learn more then we do here. So I'm wondering about your kids are learning...
what state do you live in: Georgia (southeast near savannah)
What grades are your kids and what have they learned this year in school
Kindergarten- ds learned all his letters in pre-k so this year they started with sounds (which he learned most of in pre-k) they have learned sight words and sounding out words so he is reading easy read low level books like K-1 levels. He is also doing easy addition 2+2=4, 3+2=5 etc... also they have learned money names and worth
2nd grade- dd this year has learned subtraction/addtion with regrouping. and is now doing low number multiplication. She has learned all about nouns, adjectives, verbs etc.... And using ALL punctuation. She is reading on a level 4.
Do they have homework? how much?
Kindergarten- He never has homework which fustrates me because I know they will have at least 2 assignments a night in 1st grade. dd always had homework in Kindergarten at the same school. It may be becuase he is in a EIP class or just the teacher.
2nd grade- everynight she has spelling and math. spelling is either writing her 15 spelling words 3x each, ABC order or sentances. Then she gets a math worksheet every night. On top of that she has to read for 15minutes and study either language or math facts.
what do you think of your childs school? I like their school. The teachers are great and really care for the kids! I only hate that they have no money so we are one of the only schools in the county that do not do feild trips!
