I am interested in seeing how many hours a day other families homeschool. We have our own PSA so no charter and we do all the homeschooling in home. We are using the Charlotte Mason and Thomas Jefferson methods of teaching. We typically start at 9am and finish around 2pm. Is that the average? Sometimes I feel like I need more time. My son is the one that has been taking the longest lately. It takes him FOREVER to finish his work. Not because he does not know what to do but because he is easily detracted and daydreams A LOT. He is not suffering from ANY disabilities what so ever. If I am not siting next to him starring at him he will completely float away to another planet. I have to constantly repeat to him "finish your work", "focus on what you are doing". Something that should take 10-15 min to complete will take an average of an hour for him. Wondering how other parents deal with this? I have been "trying" to incorporate more independent work but with my son it is not working. Are there some suggestions on time management that I can incorporate in my day with him? This has been driving me crazy lately! Thanks before hand to all those that comment.
Hello. My family lives in Washington State. There's a minimum 1,000 hours or 180 days OR both here. Can somebody please tell me how you fill in this requirement? My eldest is only in the first grade and to do 3-5 hours a day of school work seems like a lot. We average 70-90 minutes a day. He has a reading time besides and we also read at night. That adds up to over 2 hours a day. I figure I can also add house chores, trips and physical education to that and roughly come close. How do other folks here do it? Also do you have to meet the 1,000 hour rule if you school for more than 180 days a year? Thanks! P.S. Does anybody else here use "Classic Starts"?
