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.
