In first grade, I think itís definitely too harsh. At that age, itís really up to the family whether or not theyíre getting their homework done, even if theyíre a great student. I still had to sit with my first grader to do homework and remind her to put it in her backpack the day it was due, and she was top of her class. Imagine how hard it would be for a kid with even a slightly bad home environment.

Homework in first grade should be for practice only, and minimal. If they donít turn it in, oh well. At the most is have them work on it (with help as needed) during free time in class. Taking away recess is way too much.
