Kindergarten Math Homework

Mom of a kindergarten says: Today I am very emotional and upset. My son, who is in kindergarten, is very cooperative in school but when he comes home he emotionally falls apart. Today after trying to assist him with his developmentally inappropriate homework I reached my breaking point. I decided for the remainder of the year he will no longer take part in completing developmentally inappropriate homework.

The above Kindergarten homework, brought to children by the Pearson Envision math program (which, according to Pearson, is very well aligned to the Common Core State Standards).
