I think that is a lot of work for a 4th grade student to do for homework.

Spelling----I can see making a mistake by handing out the wrong list and still having the test on Friday. Correct words were given out 1 day late and most kids don't study until the night before, if at all.

New England Packet--was this just homework or homework and class work? If it was just homework it is WAY too much, in my opinion. I looked online to see just what states this would cover(thought I knew, but wanted verification) and the interesting part is it can be anywhere from 5-8 states. Let's go with the minimum, 5, and I still say that is a lot for homework because more than one per night needed to be done.

The book---that is absurd!! I would never have expected my students to read 75 pages per night!!! At least they'll be prepared for HS when they get there
