I know our teachers who do, at 7th & 8th grades, and they would never give that assignment. Insist on speaking to the teacher, not a note since that hasn't worked in the past for you. If the teacher will not meet with you , or not quickly enough, phone the principal with your concerns. I am not usually one to suggest principal, but this seems like an unreasonable amount of work for 4th grade.

When you do speak to the teacher, ask when the assignment was given and exactly what was required. Perhaps your son had been distracted and didn't hear the assignment correctly? Take your next step based on her answer. Good luck.
