Question of the Week: HOMEWORK?

This week I would like to know how homework is going?  You have been doing a great job at helping your 3rd Grader get their homework in on Fridays.  In the past few weeks, most kids have been getting their homework in.  It seems like it is going well.  However, I don't know what is happening at home.
Has it been a struggle?  
Is the homework packet they get on Monday too thin?  
Too thick?  
Do you find yourself doing a lot of the thinking for your child?

Remember homework should be reinforcing what your child has already learned at school and should not take your child more than 5-10 minutes to complete- if they are doing a page each night.  Getting the 20 minutes of reading in each day can be a struggle.  Having your child read 20 minutes in bed before lights out is great way for them to mentally unwind and calm down from their day.

Please let me know what's happening at your house.
Please comment here or email me and let me know how things are going.
