  • About 10 minutes. Sometimes more sometimes less. Depends what is involved ands how cooperative my child is being.

  • Haven't even had any yet, but here it is only the second week of kinder. The whole school doesn't start until after labor day and the first 3 days(the first part week for all the other students) are spent meeting with kinder students and their parent's to assess them.

  • Well in our school the rule of thumb is 20 minutes per grade, when they were in K, they could finish it in about 10, but now that homework is more difficult it takes them about 45 minutes to an hour, 3rd, and 6th grade now.

  • Shoot I wish our kindergarten teacher would give homework! So far her homework has only entailed finding an item to bring in that is X color or X shape. We have been in school over a month.

  • Mine just started having homework yesterday. It took her about fifteen minutes. She forgot to bring her homework folder home tonight. *Sigh.*

  • Just a couple of minutes. But so far everything they're doing is stuff he could do when he was three. He's had homework like singing the alphabet and stuff like that. I've had to be "that" mom and request he be tested just so they give him work on his level.

    He does do 20 minutes of reading a night, too.
