My philosophy on homework is quality vs. quantity. You will find through my weekly letters I send home, I require few assignments to be returned. I believe in spending time with family and friends at this stage of life; imagination and play are as important as structure and schedules.
I do ask that my kids spend 15-20 minutes a night reading. Stories before bed, reading with a sibling, and/or reading alone, are all equally important. Weekly assignments will be handed out every Monday and folders are to be returned Friday. The daily activies may be completed at your leisure. Be sure to remember homework is secondary, family and time spent together is primary! Homework completed with family is my ideal scenerio although I do stress it is the kids responsibility.
