Homework has a number of benefits. It helps to practice or apply knowledge of what has been learned that day, check that the child has understood the lesson and show evidence of learning.
As a general rule you can expect set work of 10 minutes per year, so your 1st grade child should be given about 10 minutes of practice per night.
You are worried that your child is struggling in Math. What should you do? There’s no need to panic at this stage. The purpose of a properly set task is not only in helping the teacher see what the child has learned; it is also there to show the parents how their child is progressing. If you think your child is struggling, then it has already worked.
Firstly start with patience. At this stage, with all the new things your child has learned today that he or she has forgotten how the problem is solved even though they could do it yesterday. Explain it again, but it is his or her work, do not be tempted to do the work for them. Show them how they can look up the answers.
You have done all this, and now you are sure your child needs professional help. Where can you find it? If your first impulse is to scour the internet, think again.
Once these sources are exhausted, then search the internet.
The best way of helping your child is by staying positive and calm.
