Clip to ScrapBook #18

I would check with the teacher. How is communication handled from home to school and school to home? Does he use an agenda book to record assignments and due dates?
Two days for 150 pages? Seems a bit extreme. It just does not feel like you have all the information.

I also teach 4th grade and give 40-50 minute homework. However, sometimes my dear little darlings drag it out at home and it can seem like a lot more than what it actually is. I try to make sure they have time in class to complete it..or most all of it. Time management....always seems to be a big issue..at school and at home.

(Also, a child will almost always go to the least resistant adult when things don't quite go their way.) I will be curious to know how things turn our for your son. Keep us posted.
