My granddaughter is heavily burdened with winter vacation homework
There are only three days to go before the school takes up ,so my granddaughter, a third grade primary school pupil , is now rushing her winter vacation homework .The winter vacation started from February 7 and school will begin on March 1.Within about 20 days ,she has to finish Chinese ,mathematics and English homework , six big books altogether –she does straight on the books rather than on exercise books as I did in my time . Poor girl !She spends 3 hours or so doing her homework every day ,apart from 6 days during the Chinese New Year when she had a great time ,playing with kids of her own age ,tagging along with her parents to pay a New Year calls to relatives . I see no reason why the teacher assigned so much winter vacation homework to a third grade primary school pupil and some questions in the homework are pitched too high for them, which frequently involve us in them .
