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.
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.
