Mrs. Cole, Mr. 6's teacher, during the first week of school announced NO HOMEWORK for Kindergarten. (Well, of course there should be no homework for the first three grades ... in my humble OLD opinion).
Mrs. Cole is a big fat liar.
I am overwhelmed at what these kids are learning and doing in Kindergarten! Reminds me of second grade! He has worksheets every single night (notice the "s" at the end of worksheet). Math. Penmanship. Short vowel sounds. Consonant sounds. Silent letters. Long vowel sounds.
He is supposed to "Drill and Kill" at home ... practice writing capital and lowercase letters. He has a family project at least once a month. He is supposed to read for 15 minutes every night. Number and "sight" word flash cards. Writing in a journal every day.
It's way too much!
Tonight's project is to build a leprechaun trap ....
