Homework and the Kindergartener

My daughter is in junior kindergarten. She just turned 5 this month. She has full-day school Tuesday and Thursdays with the occasional Fridays.

The teacher has assigned homework since
this schedule is consistently inconsistent.

I don't know how the other parents fare but it is a struggle for us to get it done with her on a weekly basis. It seems a little much also as it is 3 full pages of the letter of the week and colouring.

Don't tell anyone but sometimes I agree to colour one picture while she colours in the other six.

It's so boring sitting there doing nothing but watching her colour! (She doesn't want me distracted at all, you see).

This is only the beginning - heaven help me!

How do you get through homework with your children? I need as many tips as I can get!!
