I believe homework prepares them from what is to come in higher grades. Sure, there is the odd not odd peculiar, but odd the numerical value meaning not average student who wants to complete extra assignments because they especially enjoy the subject Smith, 2007 , or they need the work for college prep Barrientos, 2010 , but, in general, no student wants to do the work. I encouraged the parent to read the provided book with their child since they were reading anyway , and turn in the weekly reading log, which I was assured would happen. Most of his work is between a 1st and 2nd grade level. This approach is great except and I totally agree in allowing children to stretch this part of their development…. Where we live we have a horrible public school system, but we do have teachers working to change it and they have made a real difference in some of our local schools.
Other Then That I Support Parents HomeSchooling Our Public Schools Are Not The Best. In most cases, students should be asked to do only what teachers are willing to create themselves, as opposed to prefabricated worksheets or generic exercises photocopied from textbooks. As a retired teacher and parent to 3 beautiful daughters, I must disagree. No 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 pressure. So much of his life, and his opportunity to explore his own interests would have been taken away had he had 7 hours in school, and then to come home to homework after that. I am thankful that our school has a fantastic guided reading book library that almost all teachers at Metz use on a daily basis. Washington post also says that some lower income countries cultures normalize long periods of studying but it is uneffective, nd neotoday.
Because I was told that my childs teacher will not be giving out no homework at all. I have high expectations for my students, but there are those who, no matter what is done, do not do their work at school in the classroom, even with a variety of assignments to meet each learning style. God help you if you find the subject matter at all challenging! Would you do the same? I do very much love the children. She is in 2nd grade, but learns on a 6th grade level. Later, concern was expressed that I asked him quietly as I did all children where his book and homework were as they came in the door. Right now every one is having to do extra documenting of everything including why they teach what they do????? This mother was very calm and has an excellent point. The article provides a lot of secrets applied to learn algebra without any difficulties.
They took all the walls out of the class rooms. If you read to your kids, have them read to you, involve them in family life like cooking, reading and measuring from recipes, shopping, and etc they will be learning maths, science, reading. Yet school teachers still give lots of things to do at home and are surprised to see those young children tired at school and even tired of school. We home school and are usually done with our assignments by soon after lunch. Parental check and balance will be eliminated. To have them work for six hours a day at school and then go home and work for hours at night does not seem right.
They get spelling words and maybe a short reading assignment or something but never more than 15 or 20 minutes worth for the week. Homework is keeping everyone up. My kids need to spend their days at the beach, go away to camp, go on vacation with their parents be bored you know be kids. My youngest daughter has an 1 hour to 2 hours of homework every night except Fridays. My question to anyone is ,is it mandatory to have homework?? Im not saying we should not have homework, im saying that it's important to spend as much time as possible with your family.

As each new school year approaches I weigh the purpose of the assignments and consider if they are making a positive impact not only in my students learning, but also in my students home school connection with their parents. Getting a teenager to start a new habit is not fun. Homework should be a positive experience that helps and encourages all children to learn well and improve their final grade. Homework serves as a teaching aid. In other words, 10 minutes for first-graders, 20 for second-graders and so on.
A study done at the in 2007 concluded that the amount of homework given is increasing. Because they have not allowed parents to be parents. If anything, you may want to do homework to make sure your child is actually learning something. Practicing dozens of homework problems incorrectly only cements the wrong method. Very few students actually want to complete the homework that is assigned to them on a nightly basis. Wow, you are assuming quite a lot from a simple lack of extra hours of schoolwork at the end of the day.
You are right on target. Make school fun and they will want to come. Help teachers move away from grading. Realistically do you really think that school industies will ban homework or what happens when teachers say yes towards Homework eventhough when they had homework as a kid they would of hated it. It takes maybe 15 to 20 minutes at the most. Way to be a bit judgmental there.
