Wow. Maybe she is getting it done during school? IDK. My kids get HW every night ( well a reading/language arts packet due at end of week ( but equals a page a night) , sight words, reading( every night) and Math 2-3 times a week.

Oh they are only in first.

Generally here it's 10 minutes time grade level. DD should have 20 minutes and that's about right. DS is in 7th and sometimes has very little (but he made honor roll so I guess he's not lying about it).

I've always heard that third grade was when school gets challenging, but my dd gets around five math questions and 20 minutes of reading M-Th nights. That's it.

My youngest son is in third grade.  He generally has 2 math worksheets, front and back every night.  Spelling is either writing words x times, alphabetizing words, writing sentences with words, or unscrambling words.  Then there is either science or social studies homework 1-2 nights a week.  And reading every night.  So excluding reading 20 minutes or so a night.

Mine gets a 1 page worksheet and 3 very easy and short books to read every night, it takes about 5 mins to read all 3. He has 6 spelling words to learn each week. He's in Kindergarten.
My niece is in first and she has 2 front and back worksheets and has to read a story from her reading book every night, it takes about 20 mins and she also has 10 spelling words to write nightly and learn each week.

My son is in third grade. He has twenty minutes of reading,  spelling words/vocabulary words, math one page or one page with the back and front to be complete. This marking period in his class they are learning the time tables. The teacher create a printout which he can cut and use as card to study his time table.  Each day he has a topic to write in his journal. He rarely  has a social studies or science project for homework.

My DD is in 3rd grade as well. Her exact homework varies as far as subjects, but she always has about 45-60mins of homework per night. She's in GATE, though.

1st grade and she has read every night/write in journal about what she read and one math worksheet per week.  She also brings home worksheets she misses at school due to specialist times.

Depending on what he gets done in class, DS has about twenty minutes of homework per night, with a bit more on Thursdays. My students get...about the same? It also depends on the student, and how long s/he takes to get through the work.

My son is in fourth grade.    He has 2 worksheets every night, one math, one reading.  And he has to read at least 15 minutes.
