Just trying to get some ideas about how long school should take for a 1st grader, it can take me anywhere from 2 1/2 hours to 4 hours depending on if I just do the work or if I drag things out, I don't know if it should take longer then this or if this is a normal amount of time.

That sounds about normal to me.

We personally prefer to study year-round, in which case 2-3 hours per day is more than sufficient, especially for a first grader.
