:help: Ok, I really love my class this year but the past few days, they have not been doing any of their homework! I keep wondering if I'm giving too much but I really don't think so. This week I gave a math assignment (between 5-12 problems) and a science worksheet (single page) each night. Plus on Monday I gave them a spelling packet with three sheets in it that wasn't due until Friday. I also don't give any homework on Fridays. Is that REALLY too much? I was SOOO frustrated today. I really do need to give homework because we just don't have enough time in the day to do everything. I feel like I'm already behind as it is. I'm trying to think of some consequences for not doing homework. Another teacher has her students stay in during lunch with her, but then I lose my lunch time too! I am very hesitant to start a "reward" system because I feel homework is something that should be done and not something that they should be rewarded for. Any suggestions???
