In general, first graders should take between 10 and 15 minutes to complete their homework assignments. They should have a set time and a quiet place to do their work. This leads to good study habits.
They should also be reading for at least 10 minutes each night in addition to homework assignments. This reading can be done independently or with a sibling or adult at home.
Please check with your child to make sure he/she completes his/her homework. Homework assignments will always be on the “return to school” side of your child’s green homework folder. There is no homework on Fridays.
