Q & A

Inspired by Neicy’s question: When you were in K-12 school, did you have a lot of homework? Are your children/grandkids overloaded with homework?

    • I don’t think I had too much homework.  I always had trouble with math, so I always had math homework.  My kids had some but not a lot.

    • I don’t remember much about elementary school.  But I went to a college prep high school and I had a TON of homework, plus I took some advanced classes/honors classes.  When I got to college, the work load didn’t seem as bad because I was already used to it.

      My son Jack who is in first grade has yet to get homework but school just started this past Tuesday.  Kyle who is in 6th grade already has had some math homework.  But it’s not too bad yet.

    • I didn’t have much homework. When my daughter was in elementary school she had homework almost everyday. Some teachers gave homework due after school break. In high school she was in advanced classes and was always overloaded sometimes she worked until late in the evening. She had it easier in college.

    • I remember having homework on Fridays that were due back on Monday depending on the class, I don’ think we had a lot of homework back then, and my granddaughter has about the same but has up to a week to turn it in.

    • I didn’t have much.  My kids had enough to balance life.  Our grandsons-way too much for their ages and all w/o clear instructions.

    • Neicy - our kindergarten students get homework on Friday and due back on Monday.  

      Carine - I remembered when my daughter was in high school some of her math homework was ridiculous, it wasn’t taught well so the students will understand it. Some of the modern math strategies can be so confusing, yet when old methods (from my days) is introduced students may grasp it better.
