We practice purposeful homework not busy work.
Meaningful homework should be purposeful, efficient, personalized, doable, and inviting. Most important, students must be able to freely communicate with teachers when they struggle with homework, knowing they can admit that they don't understand a task—and can do so without penalty.
Busy work is an assignment that may take a lot of time but doesn’t impart anything of educational value to a student. In other words, your child may look as though he’s really busy, but is actually simply doing work to stay occupied and isn’t learning anything from it.
