Homework Help: Homework is a new adventure in second grade. It is important to set good homework routines from the start. We have busy evenings, but setting these routines will help the children feel comfortable as they begin to complete regular homework. Make sure your child has: 1. A set time for homework 2. A quiet place to work 3. Encouragement from Mom and Dad! Homework should take about 20 minutes per night. If your child is struggling, check out the homework videos below. I have created them for Unit 2, as a way to bridge the learning from school to home.
