Homework is a valuable tool in academic success. Besides skills, homework also teaches responsibility and allows parents to set aside time every day to work with their child. Typically, as the child gets older more homework is assigned. For K-1st graders you might expect 10-20 minutes, 2nd and 3rd 20-40 minutes, 4th-6th 40-60 minutes per evening. Additionally, your child might be asked to read for 20-30 minutes a day. If your child is frustrated by the amount or type of homework please see his/her teacher in order to make modifcations.
