What is the homework tonight?

Read 20 minutes. Look under the "Reading" tab on this website to find different strategies for reading at home. Different strategies work to build different skills, such as comprehension, fluency, and rate.

I want my child to have extra practice at home. What can they do?

If you go to the "Reading" or "Math" tabs on this website, there are websites/apps that students can use to practice skills. Most can be adjusted by difficulty or skill. Results are saved for my weekly review. I would recommend RAZ-Kids for reading and IXL.com for math.

How much time should we plan for daily homework?

20 minutes. It's important that kids spend time playing, being active, and being with family. National PTA (Parent Teacher Association) recommends 10 mins x grade.

  • 1st grade = 10 minutes
  • 2nd grade = 20 minutes
  • 3rd grade = 30 minutes
  • 4th grade = 40 minutes
  • 5th grade = 50 minutes

What about spelling words and math facts?

We practice these daily in school. It will rarely be assigned to practice at home.
