First and second grade students are required to read for a minimum of 20-30 minutes each night. Please have your child read an appropriate (just-right level) book independently or read to you for this amount of time.
I will not be assigning any extra homework this year. Current research has not been able to prove any positive correlation between homework and academic success at the primary level. However, if your child does not complete their work in class (or is absent for an important assignment), I may ask them to finish their work at home so that we do not have to spend extra class time making up their missed work.
