My little sister is in Kindergarden and she has this nice teacher named Ms.Horton. She has a very high reading level and can read like a second grader. But her teacher gave her Main Idea and Details homework, for a Kindergardener!? I think that is waay to much for her. What do you think?

I do feel that this is too much for her! I mean, I started getting that kind of work in second/third grade, youngest maybe first. (I don't exactly remember) I was more focused in spelling and writing at that age (And you know, numbers and adding and such.)

I don't think so.I read 2nd grade books in kindergarten (That is why I am reading 8th grade books now). I got that kind of homework in kindergarten too it wasn't that hard.

I don't know, but I think it's too much. I never went to kindergarten.

But in first grade we read books like...

Mat has a dog.

The dog has spots.

Run dog, run!

I think it's too much because to me, focusing on the main idea including supporting details is kind of hard for a kinder gardener. Although, your sister is really smart, so I guess she can do it. I still disagree with getting homework like that. You must at least get that kind of homework when you're around second to third grade.

Well.... You could be right and wrong.


Yes its to much for their little minds but it gives them a head start on things they may learn. Just like in Elementary, the teach you things to be ready for 2nd than 3rd than 4th than 5th than a brief thought on Middle School work. Kindergarteners should at least get an idea on how it would be next year.

Yeah I think that is too much, I think I might of started getting this kind of work in like 3rd or 4th grade. o.o My elementary school wasn't all that good so yeah. I can see people getting that stuff in private schools earlier though since they expect way more.

If she can read like a second grader than she can get second grade material. I myself have a reading level way above my peers and the work I got when I had a reading class was usually higher level. It actually isn't that hard, she should be fine. If she has trouble your parents can simply have a talk with teacher so that they may accommodate your sister's book smarts ^^
