For all the mums with kids that have just started kinder/ Prep how much home work is your child bringing home?
This is the 1st week DS has gotten home work. He gets it monday and has to take it back Friday.
This is what he got:
and he had to bring home the class bear for a week and do a mini project on what him and the bear did for the week.
Does this sound like a lot of the 1st week of homework?
No that doesnt sound too much and its actually very good that he's bringing home sight words etc.
Over the space of a week that's plenty of time to do the above, the "mini project" about what he and the bear did for the week is not much at all - basically he draws a picture of him and the bear doing something or you take some pics of him and the bear having a meal, wherever you went that week, playing in his room - whatever.
I find the best thing is to get into a routine for homework, my DD is in year one and I give her 45 mins after we get home for play time and a snack then at 4pm she does her homework which takes around 15 minutes, sometimes a little longer... then she can go off and play again.
