How much homework is "right" for kindergarteners?
I was surprised when my twin kinders came home with homework. Honestly, I enjoy it because I like doing that sort of thing, but one of my kids is totally on board while the other one wants to do about 1/6 of it and is done.
At five, I don't think we should be the enforcer when it comes to homework. And, yes, some of it is busy work. Not all.
The envelope says that we should plan for 10 to 15 mins. of homework a day. And this doesn't count the 20 mins. they ask us to read to the kids (we love to read so that's no biggie at all).
Does anyone know anything about homework standards? 10 mins. for 1st, 20 mins. for 2nd etc.?
