Pawelcyzk turned the Holiday Extravaganza into a community service project by enlisting the support of students from the town middle school, where she had taught the previous year. The middle schoolers helped the O'Brien students make their selections and then wrapped the gifts the youngsters selected.

When I was in 8th grade a few years ago, I had 7+ hours a homework at least 8 nights a week. It was crazy. Now in High School it is more or less around 5+ hours. It is mostly busywork, and I get nothing. Do you suggest I bring it up to my teacher and try to knock this extra junk off, or just suck it up and deal with the stress? Btw, I 665% agree with you

What about the students in your class who do not celebrate Christmas? What about those students who cannot afford a couple dollars for a "Secret Santa" gift? Those are two of the questions that drove Mike Millard, a math teacher at South Middle School in Liberal, Kansas, to create a special end-of-term activity. He does the activity with his advisory group, which comprises students of all abilities in grades 7 and 8. Instead of exchanging gifts, the students exchange compliments!

The Tyranny of Homework: 20 Reasons to Stop Assigning

That 8767 s all very nice but alas what about kids who have dyspraxia or similar learning disability and need to catch up to be able to follow? My kid has an exam next year and can 8767 t afford to waste time. I don 8767 t give her homework but more like lessons to study on her more difficult subjects Maths and English otherwise she 8767 ll have to go to lower level and adios to university I say, if your kid is in Primary, then that 8767 s OK not to have homework during the Summer holiday but for teens who are behind and who want to succeed in their exam the following year, I say this an opportunity to catch up the rest of the students and to follow.

I think we [team of teachers] shouldn 8767 t give homework over the holidays because all the teachers and students want to spend time with their family.

Decorate the mitten tree
Set up a holiday tree near the entrance to the school or the school office. Invite students and their families to donate a pair of new mittens or gloves for children who might be in need of warm clothing this holiday season. Turn the mittens over to the shelter or church that cares for needy children in your community or in a nearby city or town where the need is greater.

Parent appreciation journal
A Parent Appreciation Journal makes a great student-created gift for the adults in their lives. As holiday break approaches, provide a different writing prompt each day. Prompts might include "My Favorite Memory of a Holiday Past," "A Funny Thing Happened in Our Family," "What I Love Most About My Parents," or "A Lesson My Parents Taught Me." (Where appropriate, the word "Parents" could be replaced with the name of another role model in a child's life.) Gather students' journal entries into a gift book to wrap and give.

"I like this activity because it encourages students to focus on the most positive aspects of their peers," Millard said. Nobody feels left out because the end-of-term party doesn't focus on one holiday celebration or another, and the kids have no worries about whether or not their gifts will measure up.

Ten minutes per grade per night? So a senior in high school is supposed to have 7 hours of homework after spending all day in school? That 8767 s complete and utter rubbish. It 8767 s probably been overstated but people generally don 8767 t bring work home with them when they 8767 ve finished their day at the factory or the car dealer or the grocery store, etc.. Even so, kids have the whole rest of their lives to be consumed by their careers. I never learned a damned thing by doing homework that I didn 8767 t already know from my school classes.
