Now Four-Year-Olds are Getting Homework

I read a piece in statesman.com by a mom whose 4-year-old pre-kindergartner is bringing home nightly assignments. The author poses the question, “is 4 too young for homework?” Surprisingly, she’s getting responses from people who don’t think 4 is too young. You can post a comment here.

    My preschoolers get homework assignments, too. They are occasional, and always involve some activity with a parent/guardian. I think the assignment is really for the parent, i.e. SPEND SOME TIME WITH YOUR KID. We don’t always do the assignments, but when we do, they are fun.
