Any one else struggle with homework?
Answered 2 years ago
Legit , I’m the worst mum with sight words, and now homework. Eldest is yeR two and now getting homework. Iv barely done sight words or readers for 2 years
In school I NEVER did my homework. Literally never. Now I’m afraid I’m passing those habits to my kids.
I just, we finish school, head to. Sports or the beach, dinner bath and bed, I only get about 3 and a half hours after school with them, seems so hard to even make 15 minutes.
My kids all get along so I just feel like I’m interrupting then playing when they haven’t seen each other all day.
Every week I try to be better but every week we fail to even run through sight words usually :/
Am I the only one? Or so wither mumS struggle sometimes I feel like I’m failing my kids in this area.
Have an answer?
I hate it especially the powerpoints its basically just more work for me. Im failing homework, and thinking about opting out forever.
I have a year 4 a year 2 and younger kids. I always get them to do set tasks like writing or maths, and set spelling words but as far as reading goes I let them read what they want. The school readers are boring so who cares if they read diary of a wimpy kid instead? Its still reading and there isnt a battle.
We do 30 minutes max right after school before they get too involved in play, Monday -Thursday, I give themFriday and the weekend off. Reading, sight words, any set homework. It was a bit of a struggle to get that routine in place but now it’s locked in it’s not so hard.
