  • 2nd grader-never brings any home
    5th grader, maybe 20 minutes
    11th grader- I have no idea. I never see him do any but I do see him work on group projects and sometimes that takes days when all the kids come here to do it.

  • Maybe 5 minutes. Shes in Kinder and has to read a book.

    My 5th grader maybe one hour, tops. 30minutes of it is online work.

    11th grader, 0 minutes. His school doesnt assign homework.

  • My 5th grader doesn't get homework. Or if she does she does it in school.
    My 3rd grader usually gets a packet of work on Monday and has all week to work on it (due the next Monday). He does 1 worksheet a day usually but finishes it all up on the weekend. So like 20 minutes of work a day. But the entire month of May he just has to work on this project which is due on the 1st.
    My 2nd grader gets a packet on Monday that is due on Friday and spends about 20 minutes or so on it each day.
    That doesn't include their reading time which is 20-30 minutes a day that they do before bed.

  • Averages about 3 hrs a school..we think it is a bit excessive, but I went to catholic schools too, so I knew what to expect

  • My 4th and 5th graders usually around 15-20 minutes if they even bring it home. A lot of times they do it at school while they are waiting for their bus. But they do have to read for 20 minutes every night, so I guess that counts but I let them do their reading in bed.
