Is there too much homework? PDF Print E-mail

Too much homework?

Many parents and kids think the amount of homework given to students by schools is too much. Some parents spend the whole weekend doing homework with their children. Many kids are staying up till 10:00 p.m. doing homework assignments. Some kids even burst into tears from the amount of homework given to them. One kid in 1st grade in another school was given an assignment where he had to write a paper about a significant person in history that is at least two pages long with a bibliography. This 1st grader had just learned to read and write a couple of months ago and he had to do it all by himself. A 5th grade teacher in San Francisco says they are stressing their kids out, however researchers say american kids are getting the right amount of homework. Kids with this much homework don’t have a life and spend all day doing homework. Kids absolutely hate having this much homework. Kids have to complete up to two hours of homework a day. Kids always get in trouble for not completing their homework. They can’t complete their homework a lot because they don’t have time to do all the homework given to them. They have too do other stuff at home and sometimes have to go places. This why kids can’t finish their homework. Do you think kids have too much homework?

“Hi my name is Mrs.Bacon. Yes my name is spelled like the food and yes I like bacon.” If you are in Mrs. Dimarzio's second grade class or participated  in health class, you have heard this phrase before. Mrs. Bacon is filling in for Mrs. Dimarzio while she is having her second baby.

Second grade has been very busy this February. In math, Mrs. Bacon’s class is working with money, and double digit numbers with regrouping. In reading and writing, they are comparing and contrasting the “5 finger retell.”  Mrs Bacon explained the five fingers.

Pinky Finger: Characters: Who is the story mostly about?

Ring Finger: Setting: Where does the story take place? Where are the characters?

Middle Finger: Problem: What is the problem or challenge that that the character must face?

Index Finger: Events: What happens in the story? What does the character do to face the problem or challenges?

Thumb: Solution: How is the problem solved or the challenge met?

In social studies, they are learning about countries of the world. In science, they are learning about matter such as solids, liquids, and gases. The PATHS’ feelings for the week of February 10,2014 were shy and lonely.

Students interviewed think Mrs. Bacon is a great teacher.
