Homework On A Daily Basis

Lately, I noticed Sharlene has been bringing back homework everyday. Her homework consists of colouring and letter writing. Some days she brought home 2 books, 1 colouring book and another exercise book for letter writing. What about your kids? Do they have homework EVERYDAY? At times my girl is so lazy and refuses to complete her homework. Her nanny has tough time asking her to do it sometimes.

I've a bedtime routine with Sharlene every night. Before she drinks her milk, I will check her school bag to see what she had learn in the morning, look at her completed homework and read to her. As I was checking through her bag I found a colouring book which she put into another smaller compartment. I opened the book and found a page with a 'Homework' chop on it. I was shocked to see a clean flower picture...meaning she didn't do her homework. Her nanny didn't notice the book when she checked it during the day. It was almost 9.00p.m. and I thought she must be too tired to do it.

When I told her she has another page of colouring to do, I was surprised she took her colour pencils right away and finished off the colouring in less than 10 mins.


Sharlene did her colouring on a stool in my bedroom with Aunty YK holding the book for her. Look, she's so occupied with her colouring here.


Almost done here. Quite a nice piece, right. If only she can show this kind of enthusiasm everyday. I'll be so happy. On another note, maybe I shouldn't expect too much from a 4 yr old kid.

My kids' preschool gives homework too, almost everyday. My elder girl is quite disciplined and would finish her homework w/o being told whilst my 2nd girl is really lazy and playful :(

For an almost 4-yr-old to have daily homework is a bit much... but some people see it as training for primary 1. I guess as long as the kiddo seems enthusiastic to do it, then it's ok kua... just scared they will be so fed up, go to school also dun want...
