You were not surprised were youWe found things pretty managable with homework until high school. Then, with the school day starting before 8 am and practice not ending until 8 pm, there was little time left for it. I won't lie to you; it was tough, and many a tear of frustration was shed.
Then what does my crazy dd1 do? Realize that she "handled" 4 hours practice every night after school last year and sign herself up for every conceivable extracurricular activity in sight.
Will she get an assignment sheet at the beginning of the week so maybe she can work ahead on T ?I'm also really worried about this as well. DD is beginning 8th grade (next week)... her gym practice schedule is M, W, TH, S. Sounds great, right? Well, they have block scheduling here.... meaning they have 4 classes each day, every other day.... soooo if she gets homework on Wed., when will she do it for Friday's class?!?!?!? ARGH!!!!!! Im not really happy!!!
DD's teachers have never given out the "weekly" assignments since elementary school. They WERE pretty good about posting homework assignments online last year, so I hope they continue to do that this year. I've tried to get DD to do HW in the car, but she gets carsick very easily, so she can't read OR write in the car.... bummer. I have a feeling I may be pulling her out of practice early on some of those Thursday nights! We gotta do what we gotta do, right? After all, school DOES have to come first!Will she get an assignment sheet at the beginning of the week so maybe she can work ahead on T ?
