Students may also have additional homework or projects assigned from time to time to practice a specific skill, however majority of your child’s homework will come from anything that is not finished in class. If you feel your child is coming home with an excessive amount of homework, it could be due to lack of effort and focus in class. In addition, if your child has very little homework, that could be the result of lots of hard work and on task behavior in class 
