• Homework 
    The length of time spent on homework can vary from child to child. Generally, time spent on homework each night would be as follows:
    Kindergarten: (second half of the Year) 10 minutes
    First grade: 10-15 minutes
    Second grade: 15-20 minutes
    Third grade: 25-30 minutes
    Fourth grade 30-40 minutes

    Homework assignments reinforce the skills and concepts taught in the classroom. Additional time should be spent reading nightly and routinely practicing basic math facts. Reading to children, at every age, is highly beneficial and valued.
