Well, here I am to drop my 2-cents in the bucket!
Anna & Sarah were in the same Kindergarten class. That was mostly for me because I knew they would be fine by themselves in separate classes. However, I wanted to know their strengths and challenges in learning were their own personality & learning styles and not different teaching styles.
At the end of the year, the teacher and I, who had a great relationship, discussed class placement for 1st Grade. We both agreed that they NEEDED separate classes.
I was lucky enough for them to get the perfect teachers for each of their personalities! They are doing wonderfully! And although they do play together at recess once in a while, they have their own friend groups that they play with more often!
One has no homework on Friday and the other has no homework on Monday!
The curriculum is the same and the homework runs pretty close to the same each day or only a day or two off.
Sarah, DD2, is asking to not share a room with her twin.
She claims that Anna keeps her awake or keeps waking her up!
