If your child is in 1st or 2nd grade, how much reading are they required (as in homework) to do per week? Do they bring home required books from school that they are given comprehension quizzes on?

Brendan is a 2nd grade and all they do is suggest 20 min reading per day no quizzes on reading at home .

Same thing here, we have to read 20 minutes per night and we have to hand in a log at the end of the week listing what books were read each night. No quizzes tho.

Thank you Babydoll213 for my beautiful siggy

My girls keep a log too. They keep track of the time spent reading and what books they read and I sign it every night. They get a recomended reading list for their grade every year and they get to choose which books they want to read at home. They have comprehension assignments with the assigned reading they do in class. Sometimes that is part of the homework but not very often. Usually it's done at school.

Jumping in as a 1st grade teacher. My students have a nightly Book Log of a book they read. No one is required to do a comprehension test on a book from their nightly Book Log.

Only students who have comprehension quizzes are my Accelerated Reader students..these students may or may not read their book at home and record it on their log. This would be a library book though.

Mines only in K but he has to do 10 minutes a night reading (being read to) and then his library book he is quizzed on at the end of the week. Luckily they have "reading buddies" on Fridays before the test - 6th graders come in and read them their library books and then they take the AR quiz on it, I'm glad for that because most weeks he forgets to bring his book home all week!

Twenty minutes a night....she can pick the books. She reads way more than that anyway, so it's no big deal here.

My 1st grader gets a "book in a bag" (which has 2-3 books in it at her reading level) on Monday and returns in on Friday. They are to read each book in the bag 3 times that week. They're asked questions about the books during discussion, but it's not a graded quiz. I also quiz her over what she is reading at home (I'll sit down and read it with her or have her read it to me so I know what it's about as well), so I can make sure she's comprehending what she's reading. It can be a lot of reading because she's reading about 2 grade levels ahead, but we manage to get through it. She also brings home one library book a week and we read it over the weekend since she doesn't have homework during that time.

my son brings home a book weekly and is required to do 10 minutes every night at least. since my son hates reading(he can do it, in fact higher than they have him at but he refuses when its time to test for reading level) its like pulling teeth just to do that
I talk so much they gave me an award!!!
