Communicate With The Teacher
It's great for your kid to know that you and their teacher are partners in their learning, and you can do that by maintaining ongoing contact. Keep your communication more about your child's overall progress than on nuts and bolts.

If you feel like your child is overloaded (more than ten minutes a day per grade level) or what's coming home is all busy work, feel free to push back — politely. Just be careful not to be overly critical of the teacher in front of your child.
