DD did not come home with any homework assigned during spring break.  I will continue to have her work on her writing and math skills.  Can anyone recommend a book at library for Math story problems?

I know you can't read the text in the second pic. I was hoping you'd be able to. 

Each page has different math problems. If I recall they are mostly multiplication and division.

TY  Max.  I will keep an eye out for both.   They haven't started mult or div yet but doesnt hurt to read fun books anyhow.

I didn't realize some kids get homework over spring break.  I never had it growing up and the 2 kids of mine that are in school didn't get any either (my other 2 are homeschooled and are off too).  I would definitly keep reading because I think that's important and we all enjoy it anyway, but why push it?  Isn't spring break a chance to take a break from school work?  I love the math stories though.  But personally I wouldn't force any homework over spring break.  Not trying to start anything...just my opinion.

Or better yet - have her create her own word problems and solve for them.

She can include her favorite characters, interests, etc...

She is way behind on her writing skills which is why i will have homework for her during the break.  30 minutes-1 hr  a day for "homework" wont cramp the fun we will have.  I want to help her maintain what she has learned and help build upon the areas she has trouble with.  I may do a different type of journaling where she can write stories or her thoughts down for the teacher to go over.   We just got her report card and she has * where writing grades should be since she doesnt write enough to assess properly.

Great Idean Kris,  Thank you.  I had not thought of that.
