Just curious, mamas with older kids - what have you done to encourage good study habits, and if you could go back to the beginning would you change anything?
DD had homework this week and part of me is going, homework in kindergarten, really? I know I signed up for this because we picked a school with a traditional learning program and we were told right up front that it isn't for everyone and they are big on homework and parents signing the agenda every night and such. I figured that was a fair trade for what looks like excellent quality of instruction and great opportunities for extracurriculars, but I feel kinda guilty about making her do worksheets. Mind you, this is all me - DD is excited about doing worksheets.
I am trying to look at this as a good opportunity to instil good habits, like doing homework right away, sitting at a desk, having your supplies organized etc - while she is still young enough that she actually wants my help. But still...homework in kindergarten :(
