first grade teachers regularly send home both "just right" books that
the students have read in a guided reading group and Math Home Links
from the Everyday Math series. The first grade teachers believe that
homework should take between 10-15 minutes.
Homework in first grade is meant to provide additional practice about
concepts that have been taught during the school day. It is also meant
to give the first grade students a sense of responsibility. They should
be able to complete the homework (with help from mom and dad if
necessary) and turn their work into their teacher the next day.
