Study Tips


Homework is an important part of each student’s academic program and is assigned for any of a number of reasons:

  • to complete unfinished classwork
  • to check student’s understanding of items covered in class
  • to provide extra practice
  • to serve as preparation for future lessons
  • to reinforce material that was taught in class
  • to complete a long term project

The suggested average homework time for elementary students is as follows:

  • grade 2 and 3     15 - 30 minutes per day for 4 days
  • grade 4 and 5    30 - 60 minutes per day for 4 days
  • grade 6 and 7     45-60 minutes per day for 4 or 5 days
