I am departmentalized (weird right?) and teach ELA. The only homework my students have are a reading log in which they are required to read 100 minutes a week and their spelling homework. I have also recently been sending home a grammar sheet over whatever concept we are covering in class. I am toying with the idea of sending home writing prompt homework at the start of our next six weeks. I've had some parents voice concerns that their child has too much time on their hands after they complete their homework. They do get a lot of math homework from their math teacher, but it's not very consistent. Last week they had 3 assignments from her on top of what I assigned, but this week they've had no math homework. While I don't want to bog down my kiddos, I also know what's in store for them next year. What are your thoughts on homework?
