ditching homework. People talk about their kids going crazy with frustration with the homework. I don't remember homework being such a big deal at my house. My kids just did it and we didn't talk about it much. But this isn't true for a lot of families. For some, homework is a veritable pain in the neck.
Some people do like their kids to have homework and our school does have a clear homework policy of ten minutes X grade level on weeknights, so I'm probably going to do what Harvey Daniels suggests and invite kids to work at home on reading, writing, or math on a math app. Or should I still send the math worksheet home for people who don't have computer access? I only send one a week. I can't decide. I'm in a quandary about this. I don't think I over-assign homework. Friends whose kids I've taught have always told me they actually think my homework is creative and reasonable. I keep going back and forth on this. I think we'll just take a break this week and then I'll survey some trusted peeps. Something's going to happen, one way or the other.
