...when did school get more intense/become more of a time commitment in terms of homework? I'd say total with K including reading log we maybe spend 3 hours/week doing homework? That's with easy stuff that she pretty much already knew, but I know it won't always be that way.

Also, if you aren't familiar with concepts they are learning, have you had to go out of your way to learn it, or learn how to teach it? I'm thinking of common core.

I'm just throwing this on "your LO" because I don't see one for school...and I'm not going to sit her checking and double checking that loooooong list of boards.
