homework is assigned, it should be something the child can do on their own with minimal h homework, spelling words to write over and over again, common core math (which i despise the common core method), writing a story using the weekly vocabulary words, reading for 20 minutes or more, and now a new internet homework at the academic success of finland, where no homework is the because we did

homework was the rk starts in preschool in many cases, and it only goes up from gh i think the idea of a homework free classroom is a great proposal for a school as a whole, your child is going to be the only one in the classroom who doesn’t do you informing your parents that reading to their child counts as reading homework just as much as the child doing all the reading?When i was in elementary school we only got reading as homework, but that was in former east course, not all families and children are the same, and as a parent you have the right and choice to support and enrich their learning at home if you feel that not getting homework doesn’t round them out.I do absolutely agree that there should not be homework assigned every night and lots of it.I would be pretty upset if she sent me a letter like of homework a night is taking away from our precious time as a family and that i will allow my daughter to spend 30 minutes on homework and that’s it!Unfortunately, we got a letter back from the teacher saying that we weren’t allowed to ban homework and if our kids didn’t do it, she would fail all of them and have every one of them repeat 1st only type of “homework” i value at this age is reading at home.I never believed in homework when i was teaching but was forced to give it to my kids.I’ve been dissecting the homework policy as stated in the district’s code of conduct and the language is very now include the daily bedtime math newsletter into our evening routine, so hopefully it won’t be as much of a struggle for our 1st kids have all this homework, what are they learning in you want to make a change then write a letter to the super intendent or the if you take a positive approach to no homework with out the kids being involved and you talking with the school about it then why would the child have that ne i know had homework in the fifties, sixties, and seventies in elementary school homework must not be “homework for homework’s sake, because that’s what we’re supposed to rk also teaches them its ok to ask for help and guidance from their parents when they think they need ck: say no to homework: the other take to it | the grape idea behind refusing homework was to give every child the same chance.A meaningful homework experience should reinforce what a child learns and challenge them to be ready for the next step.I do believe however, that in certain cases the homework needs to be lessened and in other cases the homework ought to be more conducive to the lesson at 15 minutes of homework for a 6 year old is no big deal, hours of homework is a big youngest daughter has an 1 hour to 2 hours of homework every night except fridays.I’m curious, when you say that it has been met with puzzled acceptance before does that mean they excused your sons from homework?I think it would have been helpful for him to have had 10 minutes homework a day in his last year of junior school.I was a teacher for almost 30 years but at the high school level where homework was the norm.I don’t enforce the summer homework and only require my kids read.I could do so much more with 7 hours…anyways, i think a small amount of homework is not a bad thing because it gives the parent insight into what their child is learning, and is capable of.I too believe that the only homework a child should have to is read every day and spend time with their in your case, it seems from your story, that although you had homework starting in fourth grade, nobody noticed you were in trouble until you were in middle school.I am finding that more and more school work is being off loaded in the guise of homework and less is being taught during school elementary teachers that i know design their homework towards parental involvement rather than busy work for the kids — because there’s too much absentee parenting going on in i showed her teacher these notebooks and explained that homework was crushing her love of learning, she totally agreed and said she’d accept any creative works in lieu of night, one of my son’s was having a rough night, so i told him not to worry about his homework and we can just do it tomorrow night.I don’t really believe in homework, even for my middle schoolers, unless it truly supports what we’ve done in the classroom that homework means that children will not be practicing what they were supposed to have learned that day in the classroom, at their own pace without peer if the homework assigned is meant to be an intro to a project or some other function of class room time the next day, what then?Of course you

doing i never did my homework, ever, until i was about fifteen years old and petitioned the juvenile court to place me in foster care or with my non-custodial parent.I too believe that the only homework a child should have to is read every day and spend time with their , i’m a teacher, i don’t believe in a lot of homework, and i don’t believe in some arbitrary time plan, but it takes more time than we have in a school day to master the curriculum expected of children homework will not suddenly mean that children will start carrying their phones to the dinner tables in engaged homes any more than having homework will stop them from doing it in neglectful and distracted second observation is that homework helps the student to think independently outside of the school on a school project without the necessity of being in that schools up in arms with parents who don’t take interest in their child with homework may consider the teacher takes classes on the new teaching way!Heather, i totally agree with you about kids and homework.I think you said it well, “i did all those things as a child and did homework of course no homework means less work for teachers and those overworked over socialized mothers who have little time for their kids anyway.I believe that each school has a homework culture, likely set by its administrators plus all the state and federal extra homework despite what some believe actually doesn’t increase performance, and there’s so much research that proves soon as they get out of elementary school teachers aren’t going to care about a letter from their mom saying “we don’t believe in homework”.This year is an experiment and they have practically no homework, except for an occasional project that comes with the tag homework means that that conversational icebreaker on how their child’s day went socially will have i may have to go far is the middle school where my 6th grade daughter averages 20hrs wkly on homework.I was well behaved, “aced” tests without studying, but i was also disciplined repeatedly and publicly shamed in front of my classmates for being messy and not doing my homework in rk becomes important in high school, with a year or two of “practice” homework in middle my older daughter was in that school in first grade, all the parents each wrote a letter to the teacher saying that we banned homework in our should be limited to “find something at home that starts with the letter a and bring it to school tomorrow”.And if the homework assigned is meant to be an intro to a project or some other function of class room time the next day, what then?Homework becomes important in high school, with a year or two of “practice” homework in middle is not able to play sports, join clubs, or go out for the school play because she has too much , if there awaits copious amounts of homework, those enriching activities have to be curtailed so that the child’s grades don’t suffer; so that they can pass a test that absolutely shows nothing of how well equipped a child is to succeed in life.I don’t really believe in homework, even for my middle schoolers, unless it truly supports what we’ve done in the classroom that reason for all of this homework and class work isn’t necessarily to enforce and encourage learning at end of homework: how homework disrupts families, overburdens children, and limits learning.I wonder how we all as citizens/ parents could change this homework policy nation wide?I don’t believe in homework for any child, including children ages 12 to son adores going to school and learning to knit a gnome, play the recorder, garden & compost, learn the land of letters and number kingdom.I would love to hear your thoughts, heather, on how your letter can you for sharing your letter:) i am going to put it to use in my household….I feel that not having homework at that age made me more log is the only ‘homework’ i am ok s of homework max plus 25 minutes of reading does not prevent my elementary aged kids from also getting outside, doing a few activities, doing a few chores, eating dinner, having down time, and having books read aloud after , you don’t want homework

something to practice these words like say the word, cover the word, write the word, or write the word out-lining in different colors of pure revenge for our selfish teachers, we have learned to be selfish ourselves and have forced our kids to do their homework👿 !I have researched but everything i see has lots of rk is not about corralling a child’s imagination, or dampening their enthusiasm, or anything of the i enjoyed not having homework for the first twelve years of my life, it was not worth the sharp adjustment that i and my peers faced when we entered middle school and found ourselves surrounded by more disciplined students who had completed homework at a younger g back, i would have traded the years of freedom for homework in order to save myself the tears, discouragement, and despair i faced in middle for my daughters (littlest one has no homework yet) and taught junior high & high school i can assure you that this is a real problem but worse than not fulfilling homework responsibilities is the way this attitude spills over into the classroom & really into teacher wanted to me to sign a “parent contract” that stated i would be more diligent in making sure that my son’s homework was completed.I better idea, in my opinion, would be to meet with all the teachers of the grade level your child is about to enter to find out what their teaching philosophies are because while almost all public school teachers have to give homework, the amount and type of homework differs from teacher to thoughts about what no homework means by a father who gave up a career in advertising in nyc to raise his daughter from the age of 3 months until she graduated college: is sometimes just exhausting to be in school all day (plus 2+ hours per day on a bus) and then have a lot of homework to us schools now have homework for kids starting in for the ones who have already put the no homework policy in their families to work, and hooray for those teachers/ schools who let them!For one, homework actually was play, for the other, it was sheer torture and often went ’s a bigger problem that can’t be fixed with homework.I’m curious at this point in your children’s educational careers, in i’m assuming a public school system, the affect of your no-homework policy is a parents/guardians job to assist their child with homework to help them continue to learn outside the homework by 4:45pm, take a dinner break for 30 min around 7pm and then continue with homework until between 11 and midnight every this has nothing to do with saying no homework until middle school!I will be using this letter as an example of a policy i wish to persue within the australian government to support this school district my child attends has a board policy in that teachers are not allowed to assign homework until third 2nd grader certainly doesn’t have 20 minutes of only type of “homework” i value at this age is reading at for my daughters (littlest one has no homework yet) and g a child through the hell of unnecessary homework is not the only comment as a second grade teacher is to not send a letter, but to request a time to talk with the teacher either on the phone or in person to talk it fact, this is the exact same homework she was sent home with last can i avoid assigning homework if work is not being done in the classroom?I’m not surprised the official homework policy is like to as do al 5 / 6 year olds get some kind of homework ?I was a good student myself (public school) but i hated i mean is that homework aids the student to review the lesson and work independently on the project that the teacher was not able to give them 1 on 1 attention to.I did his homework last night and i don’t feel guilty.I would be pretty upset if she sent me a letter like this.I used to take my son’s 1st grade homework packet out of his backpack before he saw it & tear off half of the is no balance possible that would enable a child to get their homework done without eating into their earned recreation time at second, have to do 2 hours or more worth of homework in 2nd se, other parents should enjoy the same right to decide what after school activities their children and their families prefer, including whether or not to participate in homework idea behind refusing homework was to give every child the same homework means that america’s children will fall even further behind the children in countries like shanghai-china, singapore, japan, south korea, and hong kong – china where parental involvement and supervision is so un-21st century america.I could do so much more with 7 hours…anyways, i think a small amount of homework is not a bad thing because it gives the parent insight into what their child is learning, and is capable the end of the day, homework or no homework does not significantly improve or detract from parental r, if i were you, i’d send that same letter to the editor of my local paper and ask them to print it, along with the name of your new , homework has been banned by law for a few are many parents who would claim “no homework” and then refuse to read with their children, play with them, or structure their time in any way.I was well behaved, “aced” tests without studying, but i was also disciplined repeatedly and publicly shamed in front of my classmates for being messy and not doing my homework in study habits are nearly impossible to instill in junior high students that have grown up in a lax homework/study en need to know that homework is a part of is supposed to get between 45 minutes to 1 and a half hours a day homework.I honestly can’t recall doing much homework at ’s a bigger problem that can’t be fixed with has them do all of this homework so he can pass children he knows would never pass the class therefore are no use supporting their child through the homework anyway.I also feel that as a parent, i should have the right to call off homework for the night if i feel there is more important things that my children can and want to do….Peggy, if your grandson is struggling with his homework to the point where he and you are brought to tears, perhaps there’s something more going on than just he doens’t like homework and should be tested for a learning extra homework despite what some believe actually doesn’t increase performance, and there’s so much research that proves you for sharing your letter:) i am going to put it to use in my household….I just don’t believe you can have the kids in school pretty much all day and give homework at the same don’t say what you do for children who have trouble with their reading would be surprised how many parents actually want their children to have homework!As a courtesy, i wrote a note to the teacher explaining that my son did not so his homework at my discretion because he was having a rough night and that we would make it up the next middle schooler had triple the amount of homework both of the high schoolers 15 minutes of homework for a 6 year old is no big deal, hours of homework is a big days i hear from almost every parent that homework is not worth it, it takes too long, cuts out family time, the parent ends up doing it, etc.I think there is a place for homework, it’s not that year (2nd grade) i encourage kiddo to do her homework at homework time in her afterschool program when not in another activity, and by getting the packet on fridays, we can do a little bit on sat & sun early in the day so it lightens the thursday night scramble.I remember years ago, my one son needed new shoes and had so much homework that we couldn’t go get them until the homework will not suddenly mean that children will start carrying their phones to the dinner tables in engaged homes any more than having homework will stop them from doing it in neglectful and distracted families who refuse homework for their young children have no problem moving on to the next grade.I know first hand as i run a dance school and find as the children reach an age where serious practice and class time in dance are absolutely necessary they can not give this due to homework committements-bearing in mind they already spend forty hours a week at say “no” to homework and “yes” to dancing on logs.I would be interested to know what states everyone are from that they send their children to schools who have the no homework what you want, but i hope schools don’t cower to the vocal no homework second, have to do 2 hours or more worth of homework in 2nd grade.I’ve been lucky that our children’s school believes the same thing,last year he had “practice”, that’s what they call homework, twice and that was looking up some research nothing one study has shown that homework does any good in grade school and to the contrary has shown ill g drove me more crazy than having homework assigned to do over christmas break or spring break – i banned it and on a couple of occasions i had to write notes to the teacher explaining that they would not be completing the assignments over their break but that they would make every effort to catch up with it during school time once they r, in the later grades, when preparing children for the job force or college, homework becomes a critical assessment of what children have actually learned in the classroom.I was never encouraged to do homework and was forced to “play” outside everyday after “homework” assigned to the young children was not a positive elementary teachers that i know design their homework towards parental involvement rather than busy work for the kids — because there’s too much absentee parenting going on in , half an hour doing homework is time i’d love to be able to spend with my child playing or doing chores, but i’d much rather sacrifice that time knowing hes learning and he won’t be the odd one out in his class than see him suffer academically and socially because i wanted an extra half hour to see him ’s why i say tree forts win over one study has shown that homework does any good in grade school and to the contrary has shown ill rk tends to give school /learning a bad name and when given too young, kids learn to resent it instead of value it.I monitored their homework assignments but did not help them unless they didn’t understand a subject and were reason i think that most people disagree with what you did is that they (a) have one parent who stays home who can help the kids on their homework right after school, and/or (b) the kids have a reasonable amount of high school age student wakes up at 6 am, goes to school at 8am, gets out at 3pm and does homework till letter is good, but i imagine any school is my area would respond with “too bad, homework is required”.Further, if i were you, i’d send that same letter to the editor of my local paper and ask them to print it, along with the name of your new daughter could not play, interact with her sister, or do anything else today but sit at school, attend after-school care, and do school district my child attends has a board policy in that teachers are not allowed to assign homework until third thoughts about what no homework means by a father who gave up a career in advertising in nyc to raise his daughter from the age of 3 months until she graduated college: days i hear from almost every parent that homework is not worth it, it takes too long, cuts out family time, the parent ends up doing it, were in a district that ranks in the top 5% of our state, and although the teacher stated homework would take ~10 min per grade (that includes 20 min reading in 3rd-5th grade), the assignments rarely took more that 10 minutes total, even in 5th that said my son is in first grade and does not officially have homework, but brings home a practice worksheet with several activities to complete in order to reinforce the weeks chose the school that our children go to partly because it doesn’t assign son and i are barely speaking because i feel he is too hard on my 9 year old grandson with his unately some teachers will assign homework every night – i will probably be one of those parents who write a note and ask for it on a weekly basis instead of a daily one…….I do not believe in teaching reading beyond sounds and letter recognition.I am curious as to what the blogger and other commenters think about kids who like to do homework.I accept homework as a necessary evil; but, i find busywork for the sake of having homework to be cruel and counter-productive.

Helping Your Students With Homework A Guide for Teachers

My daughter just started kindergarten (full day, btw), and they send a homework packet home on monday that is due on you for sharing your letter:) i am going to put it to use in my household….Most families who refuse homework for their young children have no problem moving on to the next may be better off a) allowing kids to play and eat dinner and get a break before homework time and b) reviewing assignments ahead of time for value to weed out busy work.I feel that this is not homework, just reinforcement to aide in the student’s parent may be well aware of their motives when taking such an anti-homework stance but what children often see is mom &/or dad bucking authority.I love your letter and your approach for your help the children do their work in class and that only leaves them minimal homework later, with that usually being reading so not a big deal.I see homework as an opportunity for children to learn is sometimes just exhausting to be in school all day (plus 2+ hours per day on a bus) and then have a lot of homework to ’d like to support you in the classroom, and at this early stage i don’t know your views on homework, but….One teacher was quite concerned that she wouldn’t know how to give our daughter a grade if she didn’t do homework!No homework won’t mean that teachers will teach more or better or that parents will spend more time with their children in learning and growing someone else said, if homework is just too painful for a child there is usually something more going on and you would never know that if it weren’t for those interactions.I am curious as to what the blogger and other commenters think about kids who like to do twins are in kindergarten and we love the 15 minutes of homework each night and i often give them additional learning activities because they enjoy daughter loves to do homework and is excited when she brings something home to they actually get more one on one attention and instruction when parents help them work through their now, i think i have an out bc the district’s homework policy for 1-3rd is really not clear and after having met with the principal i’m sensing that they’re not willing to take it too , consider flipped learning, sending home a 5 minute video to watch instead of 20 mins of i never did my homework, ever, until i was about fifteen years old and petitioned the juvenile court to place me in foster care or with my non-custodial high school daughter has actually said to me, “if i didn’t have so much homework, i would have time to study.I can not even imagine

homework provides any y, that being said, if you truly believe that your kids are fine without homework, then you are the parents and i respect that (and appreciate that you are putting more value on family time and individual desires), but you can’t expect teachers to get rid of homework all 2nd grader certainly doesn’t have 20 minutes of for you in taking your no-homework stance, and too bad you were constantly on the log is the only ‘homework’ i am ok little bit of homework time after school may be the only positive learning experience they get in the 18 hours they are not in the classroom.I don’t know about you, but i had homework when i was in elementary school and i know my parents did not complain about the homework being sent boys hate the homework-most of it is busy son is already freaked out that he will be unsucessful in school if he does not complete his homework.I do absolutely agree that there should not be homework assigned every night and lots of it.I think that parents who hate homework are really just being selfish because enforcing a homework policy also infringes on the parents’ freedom and makes them the bad guy.I see many private and smaller schools model this and start giving homework in kindergarten.I think your approach would go a little better if you designed a replacement homework plan that aligned what your children do after school to the skills the school was practicing at that the post homework letter update or other homework posts.I have alot of homework that i do on the bus… not at instead like the one comment, they do the homework for the child in secret so as not to have to deal with , they send home 3rd grade homework and she is bored with it.I would also like to add that not doing homework in elementary school did not set me up for doing poorly, i was always a good student and had great grades and graduated with over a 4.I think that parents who hate homework are really just being selfish because enforcing a homework policy also infringes on the parents’ freedom and makes them the bad him/her the impact the excessive homework has on your family – most teachers do not intend homework to take hours and hours – and propose what you’d like the schools really feel they have to give out homework because they can’t teach all they need to in those 6 hours because of the big classes they have, and they feel all have our own path

refusal to do homework because you don’t think it’s important or necessary or whatever your reasoning is not teaching the right rk in high school and college is vital to mean to say she couldn’t evaluate a child based on 25 hours in class, but she could evaluate a child based on 29 hours and 40 minutes of class and homework time?I pulled my son out of preschool because they did too much academic work and not enough free play, and yes, they had homework.I feel that not having homework at that age made me more simply, i believe homework has no place in a young child’s is obvious to see that everyone has a definite opinion on homework and schoolwork and how and where our kiddos example, my daughter hated homework and it was a major battle.I am against busy work homework but using more learning in daily life.I am hoping maybe someone on here would have a good suggestion for a program that is not so heavy handed with homework.I only assigned homework when necessary, but some of my colleagues were not as us schools now have homework for kids starting in , my daughter has been enjoying homework so if it’s fun for her, we are going to keep it of my friends that have kids in other schools just do the homework for them because the kids run out of daughter just started kindergarten (full day, btw), and they send a homework packet home on monday that is due on example, my daughter hated homework and it was a major i showed her teacher these notebooks and explained that homework was crushing her love of learning, she totally agreed and said she’d accept any creative works in lieu of 15 minutes of homework for a 6 year old is no big deal, hours of homework is a big time is more precious than spending the rest of the day doing homework!This entry was posted in parenting with renegade rules and tagged elementary school, free play, heather shumaker, homework, it's ok not to share, kids in nature, no homework, parenting, renegade are my two cents as a teacher myself (one that gives homework, but very little).You are assuming that all teachers have a choice to give homework, and i just think your letter has caused a very negative argument against teachers.I see homework as an opportunity for children to learn self-discipline.I found your article after sitting here in frustration and getting ready to search the internet for arizona laws regarding homework.I just don’t believe you can have the kids in school pretty much all day and give homework at the same night the teacher gave a homework assignment telling the kids to help their parents clean for 10 with them goes by so quickly, and i agree that they need “home learning” far more than homework!I could do so much more with 7 hours…anyways, i think a small amount of homework is not a bad thing because it gives the parent insight into what their child is learning, and is capable at the academic success of finland, where no homework is the unately, we got a letter back from the teacher saying that we weren’t allowed to ban homework and if our kids didn’t do it, she would fail all of them and have every one of them repeat 1st grade.I don’t believe in homework for children ages 11 or is not able to play sports, join clubs, or go out for the school play because she has too much of the time the homework requirements are not up to the teacher, but a higher level of authority.I am so glad i am not the only parent out there who thinks homework for small children is a really dumb i agree that some schools assign too much homework, i don’t think 30 minutes a night is asking too much.I also feel that as a parent, i should have the right to call off homework for the night if i feel there is more important things that my children can and want to do….The schools up in arms with parents who don’t take interest in their child with homework may consider the teacher takes classes on the new teaching way!We are a working family, we live 30+ min from kiddo’s school, so we were trying to fit homework in between 6:30 and 8 pm — such a nightmare because we were all tired & homework extends into the weekend and pushes her to tears sounds like you are teaching you kids that the rules don’t apply to them; instead of teaching them how to balance their time to include had homework throughout her school career and it didn’t prepare her for not having any down time, not having time to socialize, not having time for fun!It’s interesting that in our school district our kids’ elementary school and middle school have completely opposite homework get home between 5:30 and 6 each night, have dinner, clean up, help with the little one’s homework then he takes a bath and what do you know…it’s 8:30 and time for him to go to teacher then brought on herself to patronize us by saying our children will not be well-prepared for kindergarten (which they gave out 30 minutes to an hour of homework a night as well).As a first grade teacher i do ‘assign’ homework, which is basically geared toward the parents .Likewise, other parents should enjoy the same right to decide what after school activities their children and their families prefer, including whether or not to participate in homework personal experience includes a great dread of “homework”, even in high teacher then brought on herself to patronize us by saying our children will not be well-prepared for kindergarten (which they gave out 30 minutes to an hour of homework a night as well).I was always very behind in school and i would have loved for someone to sit down and do homework with their homework was completed (20-30 minutes) they would continue their homework is not required, especially at the elementary age, though many schools make it seem as if it at the academic success of finland, where no homework is the now, i think i have an out bc the district’s homework policy for 1-3rd is really not clear and after having met with the principal i’m sensing that they’re not willing to take it too is why i love the school we are at, i have found out that the majority of the teachers in higher grades send little to no homework home as well.I feel that not having homework at that age made me more ’s much easier to just send the children out of the house than to spend time with their children while they do a homework rk now, does not guarantee admittance to harvard, or an amazing career, or a financially successful one.I see the validity of your argument, and yet, part of me is glad that some form of homework is being given to children as early as first grade because it can help alert teachers and others to issues that need to be addressed in the my kids’ school, they start giving out homework in 1st grade.I don’t know about you, but i had homework when i was in elementary school and i know my parents did not complain about the homework being sent en who need extra work often have parents who don’t do it with them, so having homework for them is pointless.I am so glad i am not the only parent out there who thinks homework for small children is a really dumb a teacher, i realize that there is a life outside of the school day and i try to be sensitive to that when assigning is a parents/guardians job to assist their child with homework to help them continue to learn outside the classroom.I was a child who did not get homework until middle school (both my brother and i went to an elementary school that forbade it) and i deeply disagree with you and believe you are doing your child a the other hand, requiring a child to write her spelling words three times after she has already completed a perfect test of the list (making up a homework assignment that she clearly didn’t need to do to master the standard) is not only a waste of time, but teaches children that “learning” (i mean what else is school for?The “student” did his homework on his own–never once did i need to ask whether he had completed i tell my kids f$%& that you dont have to do homework f^%# your school and teachers well then yes they will think they never have to son is in kindergarten and he has 5-15 min of homework each night, after a 7 1/2 hour gful homework should be an extension of the school time is more precious than spending the rest of the day doing homework!My only comment as a second grade teacher is to not send a letter, but to request a time to talk with the teacher either on the phone or in person to talk it can i avoid assigning homework if work is not being done in the classroom?The school district my child attends has a board policy in that teachers are not allowed to assign homework until third that case, i hope both parent and child are willing to accept the lower grade that may result from a failure to turn in i may have to go far is the middle school where my 6th grade daughter averages 20hrs wkly on homework.I did all those things as a child and did homework , if you sat with us as my 10 year old grandson tried/tried not to do his homework, mostly crying then by him – later by the parent does not want or believe in homework then the family should feel safe in sharing that with the teacher, and not live in fear of being judged by the will reach middle school and have all of this homework all the sudden and won’t have developed the study skills or patience needed to do end of homework: how homework disrupts families, overburdens children, and limits have to ask the teacher “why are you assigning this homework?To end all i can say is homework is okay i would rather do flashcards and fun learning things with my kids then text book homework, but in the end i don’t want our nights to be just homework!When i have kids of my own i will not be helping them with homework after school i will be watching them play and enjoy their childhood as all children should for the record, homework doesn’t ruin the school experience!The extra homework despite what some believe actually doesn’t increase performance, and there’s so much research that proves r, i totally agree with you about kids and homework.
    • That funny Chinese homework assignment now with context!

      I am going to take your letter, morph it a bit, and turn it in with friday’s homework.I think this letter is wonderful, and if for some reason i do end up sending my son to school, i might have to copy it word for word!How about changing your outlook from “we have to do mean to say she couldn’t evaluate a child based on 25 hours in class, but she could evaluate a child based on 29 hours and 40 minutes of class and homework time?As much as i was swayed emotionally by the original article, your comments are thoughtful and reasonable and convince me homework really is i may have to go far is the middle school where my 6th grade daughter averages 20hrs wkly on are some bad teachers out there but please stop making this a war against all teachers that assign i feel this should be the extent of his homework per night.I think it was in the 70’s that parents wanted homework for their , we did have homework, but not a whole lot and not until we were 8 or son is in kindergarten and he has 5-15 min of homework each night, after a 7 1/2 hour the student does the homework and turns it in, they get full credit for strait a students might fail because they dont have the time and cant do their homework.I completely disagree that homework is absolutely necessary in the elementary reason for all of this homework and class work isn’t necessarily to enforce and encourage learning at my children were in high school they would come home, grab a snack and proceed to do their are assuming that all teachers have a choice to give homework, and i just think your letter has caused a very negative argument against only thing i will say is that i wish he’d had a little more homework last year.I never believed in homework when i was teaching but was forced to give it to my kids.I do believe however, that in certain cases the homework needs to be lessened and in other cases the homework ought to be more conducive to the lesson at r, if i were you, i’d send that same letter to the editor of my local paper and ask them to print it, along with the name of your new instead like the one comment, they do the homework for the child in secret so as not to have to deal with you.I was well behaved, “aced” tests without studying, but i was also disciplined repeatedly and publicly shamed in front of my classmates for being messy and not doing my homework in particular.I’m not surprised the official homework policy is a first grade teacher i do ‘assign’ homework, which is basically geared toward the parents .In canada, parents sued to opt out of homework and won.I realize that not every kid gets to go home to a place where he or she can play outside, but there should be options for them too that aren’t were in a district that ranks in the top 5% of our state, and although the teacher stated homework would take ~10 min per grade (that includes 20 min reading in 3rd-5th grade), the assignments rarely took more that 10 minutes total, even in 5th d of homework, kids would do much better in school if they got their full quota of sleep and were in bed by 7:30 or 8pm.I would be interested to know what states everyone are from that they send their children to schools who have the no homework en need to know that homework is a part of school.I am hoping maybe someone on here would have a good suggestion for a program that is not so heavy handed with i have a real problem with is the “homework” that requires shopping and heavy parental participation!My boys hate the homework-most of it is busy they actually get more one on one attention and instruction when parents help them work through their law says your son has to go to school, but there’s no rule that says he has to do homework.I was a good student myself (public school) but i hated homework.I hated that the schools pushed homework on kids at such a young question is this considering she struggles in math should we rule out homework or selectively choose ones to focus on?Our kids go to a school where they have no chose the school that our children go to partly because it doesn’t assign homework is absolutely necessary even at such a young age for several reasons.I think homework should not only be limited in elementary school but also in high rk that allows families to research together, and build on their collective knowledge can be great fun as well as being useful… maybe it’s not homework that is pointless, but the type of homework that needs to be changed…?Doing homework is not required, especially at the elementary age, though many schools make it seem as if it grade she comes home with a “connect the dots and color” thing that she’d do regardless, so i think they’re just getting practice of doing homework of those kids will come home, throw their books on the floor by the door (if they even brought them home) and play video games for the rest of the afternoon, no matter how many letters you send home.I hate homework it is mixed in with 7-8 hours of school…hell with your definition, kids who have learning disabilities would just need to do tons more homework?No homework won’t mean that teachers will teach more or better or that parents will spend more time with their children in learning and growing unately some teachers will assign homework every night – i will probably be one of those parents who write a note and ask for it on a weekly basis instead of a daily one…….I honestly can’t recall doing much homework at all.I don’t see anything wrong with assigning homework as long as it is reasonable for their grade if the reason is simply that a parent is uninvolved because s/he is working two jobs to make ends meet, homework is only adding to their work load and stress that said, he always has tons of homework to grade and class son and i are barely speaking because i feel he is too hard on my 9 year old grandson with his homework.I hate homework it is mixed in with 7-8 hours of school…hell actuality i’ve taught thousands of kids & while some do not need homework to reinforce classroom learning, the majority do.I would also like to add that not doing homework in elementary school did not set me up for doing poorly, i was always a good student and had great grades and graduated with over a daughter loves to do homework and is excited when she brings something home to do.I think you need to explore the research on homework that consistently finds no benefit to hw particularly in the elementary law says your son has to go to school, but there’s no rule that says he has to do homework.I get a lot of parents complaining about not enough homework, but i find that the kids who need the practice never do the homework, and the kids that don’t need the practice always do kids’ daily schedule, by the time they are in high school is…wake up at 5:30am to get to school for “zero period”; take at least 7 classes, most of which are high level ap classes; go to an after school practice/game/performance; get home around 6 or 7pm; hopefully eat a healthy dinner; unwind & then do homework; and, hopefully get 8+ hours of sleep before the alarm rings again at 5:30am….Never therefore are no use supporting their child through the homework for those who said their children were well rounded with doing homework and other things, that’s great for you; however, did your child honestly get the family time he/she craved?I’m the mean mommy that makes them do homework!It’s much more simple that than, because he doesn’t even grade the grade she comes home with a “connect the dots and color” thing that she’d do regardless, so i think they’re just getting practice of doing homework days i hear from almost every parent that homework is not worth it, it takes too long, cuts out family time, the parent ends up doing it, a first grade teacher i do ‘assign’ homework, which is basically geared toward the parents .I don’t think whether a child having homework or not having homework is really the him/her the impact the excessive homework has on your family – most teachers do not intend homework to take hours and hours – and propose what you’d like kids have all this homework, what are they learning in i enjoyed not having homework for the first twelve years of my life, it was not worth the sharp adjustment that i and my peers faced when we entered middle school and found ourselves surrounded by more disciplined students who had completed homework at a younger unately, we got a letter back from the teacher saying that we weren’t allowed to ban homework and if our kids didn’t do it, she would fail all of them and have every one of them repeat 1st don’t say your age, but by average, you (and your kids) did a lot less homework per night than children are expected to do homework means that america’s children will fall even further behind the children in countries like shanghai-china, singapore, japan, south korea, and hong kong – china where parental involvement and supervision is so un-21st century , if you sat with us as my 10 year old grandson tried/tried not to do his homework, mostly crying then by him – later by me.I do not believe that homework should be dismissed homework is absolutely necessary even at such a young age for several subject deals with life, why can’t homework deal with life?He is supposed to get between 45 minutes to 1 and a half hours a day had homework throughout her school career and it didn’t prepare her for not having any down time, not having time to socialize, not having time for fun!What do you know i am working on homework right now at 8:00 clock haven’t done anything all day to keep me happy video games, going outside, socializing just sitting in my room waiting to get a the schools really feel they have to give out homework because they can’t teach all they need to in those 6 hours because of the big classes they have, and they feel short answer is check your school district’s homework policy dictates that at this grade level every single subject including art and music give homework for a grand total of 15% of the rk starts in preschool in many cases, and it only goes up from there.I’m currently in the process of arguing with our 2nd grade teacher and principal on the whole homework of the time the homework requirements are not up to the teacher, but a higher level of , there was a time when i struggled like mad with homework, and i didn’t have a learning disability and i got great minutes of my children’s time to complete their homework did not restrict them from having enough playtime to explore their surroundings and expand their curiosity.I have done it twice and both times my son came home with a paper for me to sign due to incompleat homework.I only assigned homework when necessary, but some of my colleagues were not as ’t like homework or the education system how does homeschool the end of the day, homework or no homework does not significantly improve or detract from parental involvement.I was never encouraged to do homework and was forced to “play” outside everyday after in the 1920s, my grandparents never had homework, not even in high rk in high school and college is vital to kids’ school (k-8) has a no homework policy up to grade 5, so we wholeheartedly agree!My daughter was the one who played school, made up extra homework, went above and beyond and got her masters degree in four years.I would love to hear your thoughts, heather, on how your letter can d of homework, kids would do much better in school if they got their full quota of sleep and were in bed by 7:30 or high school age student wakes up at 6 am, goes to school at 8am, gets out at 3pm and does homework till the end of the day, homework or no homework does not significantly improve or detract from parental is what has created the homework craze in this taught junior high & high school i can assure you that this is a real problem but worse than not fulfilling homework responsibilities is the way this attitude spills over into the classroom & really into kindergarten there isn’t a bunch of homework – but so far september we were assigned math for a month and in october we have do do 8 stories (3 sentences each) – and draw pictures for each story.I do not feel absolutly no homework is a good idea because like my 2nd grader he has a spelling test every friday so every monday the list comes home and (12 words) every night he has to do something to practice these words like say the word, cover the word, write the word, or write the word out-lining in different colors question is this considering she struggles in math should we rule out homework or selectively choose ones to focus on?So with your definition, kids who have learning disabilities would just need to do tons more homework?The elementary schools buries them in homework from day one while the middle school is adamant that homework should be ’s much more simple that than, because he doesn’t even grade the middle schooler had triple the amount of homework both of the high schoolers son is in 1st grade and he has math and spelling homework each night.I think this letter is wonderful, and if for some reason i do end up sending my son to school, i might have to copy it word for word!Minutes of homework max plus 25 minutes of reading does not prevent my elementary aged kids from also getting outside, doing a few activities, doing a few chores, eating dinner, having down time, and having books read aloud after school.I would like to think that my teachers would have perhaps asked some questions if i were given homework at a younger age and they saw that it was never when every other student has to turn in homework or face consequences, your child just gets to sit there and smile because you don’t believe in will reach middle school and have all of this homework all the sudden and won’t have developed the study skills or patience needed to do it.I do absolutely agree that there should not be homework assigned every night and lots of homework doesn’t mean kids will be playing out doors until they’re called in for dinner like they did in the 50’s and 60’s.I also tell my 4th graders and their parents that i believe in science and until science shows me that homework leads to better grades, test scores, and or learning, i will continue not to assign us schools now have homework for kids starting in , for those of you putting a teacher down for not teaching your children during those seven hours away and forcing them to do 20 minutes of homework, you need to take a step back and remember, you have one, two, or maybe a few more only comment as a second grade teacher is to not send a letter, but to request a time to talk with the teacher either on the phone or in person to talk it a teacher, i realize that there is a life outside of the school day and i try to be sensitive to that when assigning actuality i’ve taught thousands of kids & while some do not need homework to

children) where his book and homework were as they came in the homework is just checked in and sometimes not even majority of peer reviewed research done on the benefits of homework, especially homework assigned at the elementary level, clearly reveals little to no academic benefit for young children.I am not talking of anyone else’s children just my own, however my kids get home at 4:30

extra relatable material came just become tedious exercises at that i tell my kids f$%& that you dont have to do homework f^%# your school and teachers well then yes they will think they never have to my kids’ school, they start giving out homework in 1st grade.I am of the opinion that anyone who fosters unfavorable ideations regarding the work of elementary classroom teachers, public schools in general, homework, homework does become important, i view it as the child’s ore, from the 7th grade & up your child would have homework & this should be good enough because there is more to learn and less time per class to learn it but should they really have between 2 & 3 hours worth of homework?It uses language such as “teachers will encourage parents to set aside time” and “in order to encourage positive student attitude toward homework….Also for me as a mom doing three hours a night 15 hours a week not including weekends feel that any homework should be a recap of what they have learned, not me spending another 20 min on the computer looking up what the heck the teacher sent home because now adays i am not smarter than my 5th grader…….And of course no homework means less work for teachers and those overworked over socialized mothers who have little time for their kids rk tends to give school /learning a bad name and when given too young, kids learn to resent it instead of value it.I don’t think whether a child having homework or not having homework is really the children came home from school, had a snack, played outside and did their homework after of my friends that have kids in other schools just do the homework for them because the kids run out of those who advocate homework for young children, think for a minute about the concept of my 15 year old-she needs the math practice but i don’t think homework is accomplishing that.I am always surprised that not more parents complain about one, homework actually was play, for the other, it was sheer torture and often went i have kids of my own i will not be helping them with homework after school i will be watching them play and enjoy their childhood as all children should teacher wanted to me to sign a “parent contract” that stated i would be more diligent in making sure that my son’s homework was for the record, homework doesn’t ruin the school experience!The 10 minute rule limits homework to 10 min/grade level, so 20 minutes tops in your has them do all of this homework so he can pass children he knows would never pass the class otherwise.I get a lot of parents complaining about not enough homework, but i find that the kids who need the practice never do the homework, and the kids that don’t need the practice always do it.I am not talking of anyone else’s children just my own, however my kids get home at 4:30 they have to eat dinner why doing homework won’t mean that teachers will teach more or better or that parents will spend more time with their children in learning and growing daughter was the one who played school, made up extra homework, went above and beyond and got her masters degree in four has snack and watches about 30 minutes of one of his favorite shows and we sit down to do the my opinion, every minute of the class should be used wisely, and there were many times that it wasn’t, and my child would end up with homework to make up for all that time the teacher “didn’t with them goes by so quickly, and i agree that they need “home learning” far more than homework!Are you informing your parents that reading to their child counts as reading homework just as much as the child doing all the reading?Start homework by 4:45pm, take a dinner break for 30 min around 7pm and then continue with homework until between 11 and midnight every night.I am hoping maybe

those who advocate homework for young children, think for a minute about the concept of balance.I hate homework it is mixed in with 7-8 hours of school…hell no.I was always very behind in school and i would have loved for someone to sit down and do homework with me.I monitored their homework assignments but did not help them unless they didn’t understand a subject and were perplexed.I’m currently in the process of arguing with our 2nd grade teacher and principal on the whole homework subject.I think you need to explore the research on homework that consistently finds no benefit to hw particularly in the elementary help the children do their work in class and that only leaves them minimal homework later, with that usually being reading so not a big s you’d like the teacher to explain that homework and studying become important in high school so you don’t feel subject deals with life, why can’t homework deal with life?But if you take a positive approach to no homework with out the kids being involved and you talking with the school about it then why would the child have that mentality.
