    1st grade homework

    Your math program sounds similar to the one we use. Our program is Saxon math. The children do one sid eof the sheet in class and we check it together. The other side is very similar to the side we did in class so it should only take 5-10 minutes to complete. I also like my kids to read every night. I am not a big fan of homework. I have a 10 year old and a 13 year old and sometimes we have no time for any family activities because of the amount of homework they get. I do not think that doing a quick math sheet and reading each night is too much. I have told the parents that if it becomes a screaming match or is taking too long than just write me a note and we will see what we can do. First graders need play time. Just see how it works and if things aren't going the way you want them to maybe you could readjust. Sometimes when we are way ahead of schedule during the day I let them do part of their homework in class. That is a real treat!
