    For many years I used to give homework….maybe 5-6 problems.  When my daughter was in 3rd grade she struggled to make sense of math.  Evenings were spent butting heads…it was a battle between her exhaustion (7 hours of school plus homework time is a lot for a 10-yr old), my inability to do it right (that’s not how we’re supposed to do it, mom).  After that, I stopped giving homework and haven’t looked back sense.  A whole new perspective is brought to homework giving when you have first hand experience with a child who struggles……that is a reality for many of the kids in our classrooms.
