  1. We should have less home work because 1: You get stressed out if you have to much. 2: you might not have a good job

    First we learn better in the classroom. If you feel rush with to much homework and no time you will do sloppy work. Also you can work together in the classroom with actually time!

    Next,there is more time to reach personal goals! People have book goals and sports goals and need time to complete them for better jobs. If you don’t have time to complete your goals you won’t get a great job.

    Last, there will be more time to socialize .You can get a better job if you do. Also you can rise in that job

    That is why we should have less homework.

  2. I think that we should have a lot less homework.

    My first reason is that we need relaxation after a hard, long day at school! We have to WORK for 7 hours straight, with only breaks for lunch and recess, and then we have to go home and do our homeWORK! It’s like having to go to school DURING OUR RELAXING TIME!!! It just isn’t fair!!

    My next reason is if we do homework, that means we need to bring our big, HEAVY books home! We could get injured in our back and necks from the weight of our loaded down backpacks! Also, if we could leave our books at school, they wouldn’t wear down as fast, which means we wouldn’t have to get new books as often.

    Also, WE ALREADY LEARN THIS AT SCHOOL!!! Going home to do work that we already did at school is just plain stupid and pointless! We could use that time to do other things, and we’re doing things that we already did! It’s so unfair!!!

    These are a few reasons why we should have less homework. Huh, it’s like our opinions count at all. ^u^ Just kidding.

  3. Do you like homework? Well, homework is very good for your brain. Here is why homework is good. Prepare to be amazed!!

    First of all, doing less homework makes you less prepared! Students should learn at home to keep their brains working. From the passage it says, ” Doing less homework also makes students less prepared.” which is almost exactly what I said!! 🙂

    Next, working at home lets students work at their own pace! At school the teacher could go maybe a little to fast for you to keep up so working at home could prevent that. From the text it says, ” Working at home allows student to practice and study at their own pace.” and that explains it!

    Finally, homework makes a stronger, better student when they are done with it. they will learn new things doing homework. In the text it says, ” It makes a stronger better student when it’s done.” and that is exactly what teachers want from their students.

    Now do you see my point with having HOMEWORK! Now ELA, Math, and Science are okay but NO SOCIAL STUDIES!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  4. I think that kids should have no homework. Here are some reasons why.

    First kids need to go outside and have some fun. Mainly because without Vitamin C no life. Also getting time with your friends.

    Next kids need time with their family. Mainly because things like game night, mother or father time, and vacations. If they have homework, less time with their family.

    Finally homework is boring! Mainly because most kids hate homework! Why is HOMEWORK EVEN A THING!

    That’s why kids should have no homework. That’s it for today. Bye!

    • I so agree !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  5. Homework. You just don’t like it. so we need less of it. more freedom less homework.

    Homework seems like a waste of time. Kids have sports to go to and other things. So giving less homework is better because kids don’t need to be stressed every day on homework. And they want to be free instead of 2 hours of homework.

    Although everyone doesn’t like its going to help you pass a test. Teachers say the more practice the better they do.
    Also it may be fun but its really not.

    We need homework but not a lot so were at the point were we are stressed every day.

    In conclusion homework is helpful but not 2 hours and your angry so give us less homework. More freedom less homework.

  6. Do you think having homework is a good idea? well I don’t, I will give you three of some of the best reasons why.

    My first reason is because to much homework can over whelm you, in the text it states, “But if students get too much homework, they will become stressed and frustrated.”

    My second reason is we maybe could still have homework but less of it. In my classroom my switch teacher will give us two days to get a big project done. So she should give us way less social studies homework, or we could have no homework Fridays and other days and we could have days where we have homework.

    My last reason is because of your safety. In the text it states, Some kids have gotten neck injuries from lugging home loaded-down backpacks. Also, without so much homework kids have more time for family time and play with there friends.

    In conclusion, these are my reasons for having no or less homework. Which side are you on?

  7. Macy, I love your opening, but we need at least a little homework from EACH subject. As you said, it makes a stronger, better student when it is done, right? 🙂

  8. Do you like to do homework? I believe that we should have less homework.

    My first reason, is kids will be able to have more fun free time. For example, kids will be able to play games with there family on weekdays, not just weekends. Also, kids will have more time for reading. When kids have homework they don’t have as much time to read. They will also have more time to play with there friends.

    My second reason is that having less homework gives you healthy relaxation time. Kids already work 6 hours a day in school and then they have more homework on top of that. Kids will not have to carry as many heavy books either. Some kids get neck injuries from carrying all of there heavy books.

    My last reason is that homework takes a lot of time. Kids get frustrated because it takes to much time and they want to play. Some kids don’t get there homework done because they have sports practice. Then they have to do all of there homework when They get home. Also, kids don’t always know what to do on homework because kids learn better with teachers around.

    That is why I believe that kids should get less homework.

  9. Homework

    Should we have less homework? What do you think? I think we shouldn’t have a ton of homework, but we should definitely have at least 45 minutes or 1 hour of homework every night. Homework can be frustrating and confusing at times, but you will be grateful in the long run.

    My first reason is, while a lot of people don’t like homework, you really do need it. Students benefit from all the extra practice homework provides. Also, it is called HOME-work for a reason. It gives you practice at home. When you practice all of your lessons, you will get good grades on tests. Also, students are less prepared for the next day’s lessons. If you aren’t prepared for the next day’s lessons then you will have to go over yesterday’s lesson and you won’t get as much done in school.

    Next, homework takes time to do, as we all know, so when kids have lots of homework, it teaches them time management. Time management is an important skill so all kids should learn how to do it. Also, if kids use their time wisely, they will still have time to play or read. So, you aren’t taking away our relaxing time, you’re just making us work a little harder to get that free time.

    Finally, we don’t have enough time in the school day to get all the practice we need in all of our subjects. For example, math is hard for some people so homework lets them study and practice at their own pace, their own way. Reading and writing just takes practice and sometimes a little help from your teacher or parents. Homework helps with Science and Social Studies too.

    Although homework might me stressful, it could be the thing helping you get all of those 100s and A+s on the tests. So, just do your homework and become a better, more experienced student. See homework really is useful!

  10. I think that we shouldn’t have homework because in the text it says “Many kids wont have to carry home so much heavy books. Some kids have gotten back and neck injuries from bringing home loaded-down backpacks. There are also less wear and tear on text books if students leave them at school, meaning the books will last longer. Also if you have a lot of homework then you might not have enough time to spend with your family. That’s why I think you should not have homework.

  11. I think that there should be no homework because kid need more freedom.

    Having less homework means having more time for fun. Without so much homework students have free time to play, read, and spend more time with family.

    Also, it is healthy to have relaxation time after a long day at school. many kids won’t have to carry home so many books.some kids have gotten back injures and neck Injures from having so much wait on there back.

    Another reason is kids work better in the class than at home because the teacher is not there to guide them and allow them to not make mistakes

    That’s why there should be no homework
