Day 35: Homework

Every household has its rules and one of ours is that homework gets done right after the girls get home from school. In second grade Karis doesn't have much homework - it can usually be done within 15 minutes. After that they have a snack and they can play until dinnertime. Today Karis had to write her 10 spelling words in ABC order and complete a long-ish math worksheet, which she's working on here. Some days homework is a chore, for them as well as me, but today Karis had it all under control. She did it all with minimal input from me. I was very impressed with the way she went right to work on that math, asked me if the first one was correct (it was) and did the rest like she knew exactly what she was doing. It's not always that easy for her.


  1. That's great that Karis gets her homework done independently -- homework is such a struggle around here for Rachel. She's also in 2nd grade and while she doesn't have much homework it seems like it takes forwever to complete it.

  2. It's so important to have consistent routines with home work. It will do her well all the way through school.
