  • My second grader has homework once or twice a week on average and two book reports that are due every Tuesday. He does the book reports by himself, but needs help occasionally with homework. I spend about 20-30 minutes helping him every time he has homework.

  • I don't really keep track of how much time they spend on homework.  I don't do homework with them unless they are stuck on something so they usually do it themselves while sitting at the kitchen counter.  I'm either cooking dinner or doing something else.  Most of the time they are done before dinner (they get home at 4pm and dinner is at 5pm).  Then they do their reading at 7pm, bedtime is at 8pm.

  • however long it takes them to get it done, we have a hectic sport schedule, so alot of homework is done in car and between practices, both kids do their own work and may ask if they have questions
