The Homework


The Homework
Originally uploaded by CraftyHope
Check out this mountain of homework my 8 year niece had tonight - 12 pages of reading, 3 worksheets, a chapter of social studies to read, two sets of vocab words, and 20 spelling words. We did homework for THREE hours. She's in the THIRD grade. It was unreal.

  1. OMG!!!! I guess private schools can break state guidelines about homework. That's WAY TO MUCH. She should have 90 minutes, tops, 30 minutes for each grade.

  2. This is one of the reasons why I am so relieved I homeschooled my daughter.
