  1. 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.
  2. Our 14 year old DS is very bright, but really needs help with time management. He's actually asked for planning systems to help him structure his time (he has inattentive ADHD). I'm thinking of something like Homeschool Planet this year. But what I really want are features thatwould send him text reminders and/or alarms. To help him know when to stop/start/get ready, etc. (I have no idea if Homeschool Planet or other planners have any feature like this.) Any good recommendations?
  3. I posted earlier about homeschool planners (we need one!), but didn't really get a lot of feedback on individual ones. If anyone uses a homeschool planner (Homeschool Planet or ANYTHING else) -- would you mind giving me pros/cons or comments about specific features you liked or disliked?

  6. I've been looking at some areas that we need to "shore up" before I have an official high schooler. Working with her today on some math things, I realized that she KNOWS mnemonics but just won't write them on her paper to help her. Why? I have no idea. She says she didn't think she was allowed to... that maybe that was cheating. Clearly, it's NOT if you write it when you are given a test. Clearly, it's not if you write it at the top of your homework paper which BY THE WAY is straight out of the book. I guess it never dawned on her that she could refer back to the lesson. It's mindboggling to me. But then I realized that she is a very different student than I am. I naturally do things that are taught to you in a Study Skills type program. She doesn't. (Look at titles, subtiles, bolded words, graphics, flip through to see how long the lesson is, etc.) So how do YOU teach this to your students? And then I realized that she knows how to write a keyword outline, but NEVER takes notes as she reads unless it is a specific outline task. And then she only knows IEW keyword outline process. So maybe I should put "Read and OUTLINE" on her assignment list. She also struggles with time management. I know a certain amount is normal. I was a procrastinator in public school too. But I would like to get her to a point that I can say "This week xyz needs done" and not spoon feed her the daily breakdown. I also need to figure out a reasonable consequence when expectations aren't met. For various reasons, our homeschooling as been a little more relaxed than I'm comfortable with and we nee to get back on track. Soooooooooo... what does this process look like in your homeschool?
  7. I know this has been discussed in the past, but I can't find any specific threads. I would love to know what is 'normal' wrt how much time you plan vs how long things actually take. For example, if you had 2 hours of 'school' to get through with 3 kids together, plus half an hour of individual work for each kid, theoretically this would take you 3.5 hours to finish. But how long does it take in real life (not including planned 'in between' time such as a snack break)? What do you do to make things run more smoothly and not take all day?
  8. Hello, I'm trying to get some information about how to use graph theory in order to reduce the time spent on a route. It could only pass once through each vertex and, at the end, return to the initial one. I will be really glad If you could send me information, samples or essays talking about this topic, etc. Thank you very much.
  9. Does anybody else have a hard time finding/making time for the "fun stuff"? I do. We're pretty focused on academics here, and I like reading and discussing and learning things. And providing what I consider to be a full and complete education to a 6th grader and a 2nd grader pretty much fills up the whole day. And it's good. But I feel something - wistful? regretful? something . . . . like by providing this solid education that I feel good about, we're missing out. We don't have a lot of time to get outdoors, to play games, to garden, to teach the kids to cook, or to do messy fun projects that don't have an academic focus. Lord knows we aren't getting enough excercise. And I only see this getting worse with a child entering jr high/high school. I get it that I'm making a choice, and that there isn't time for everything. But I wonder if I'm making the right choice? How do you balance all the things you find important? How do you fit it all in? If you don't, what do you let go of? February musings . . . ;)
  10. I need a serious kick in my pants. I know that I should just be a grown-up and do what needs to be done around here but it's just not happening. I grow so weary of the non-stop urging my children to help, the follow-ups, and trying to keep up. But I'm sinking further and further into mess and disorganization. It's really just picking up and putting away and making the house look sort of tidy and working on some organization (ie make sure everything has a home and if it doesn't, it's out of here). I start and feel overwhelmed and then quit. I've tried all kinds of cleaning plans/routines but they don't really help because they aren't asking me if I actually got it done and they are generally way too overwhelming. DH is too sweet to complain and keep me accountable and thinks I do enough. And all my IRL friends are perfect (LOL! I know that's not true! but it seems that way!) I've hired in some help, too. And I don't want to waste that and use that time wisely to really get some organizing projects knocked out. But I'm the ultimate time waster. Ideas? Groups I could join? Hire a drill sergeant to come in and yell at me periodically?
  11. I'm curious to know how much time your children devote to daily studies vs extra classes and activities? My 10 yo daughter is *very* social, and she likes having several classes a week that allow her to be with other children. My son is in middle school, and yesterday she shadowed at his school. Her immediate response was that she absolutely loved it, misses school (We have been homeschooling for about a year now), and especially misses being with other children all day. Upon deeper investigation, she misses being with other children all day more than she enjoys the daily routine of school. I love classical education but I find it takes so much time. I'm trying to help her find a good balance of work and extra activities. If I add one or two more activities, then we need to figure out where schoolwork fits in. I'd love to hear what others have found works well for their social child. Darlene
  12. My son is 6 and we school yr round. We are completely in first grade materials (almost 2nd grade with math). I am having a hard time figuring out how much time per subject. For k I planned to do x amount of lessons each week, but I think we would do better with a set amount of time. Right now we are doing an hour each day of 1 subject (math-Monday, reading-Tuesday, science- Wednesday, and history-Thursday). I find that by the end of the. Hour he is burnt out and I think it's bc it's too long for him to sit and work on 1 subject. I would like to do all of our subjects daily so he has a variety of things each day. So what do you think is a good set amount of time for a young 6 yr old?
  13. My 4.5 y.o has already done half of the Saxon Phonics program and half of the Level A of Critical Thinking's Mathematical Reasoning. We will actually "DO" homeschool officially starting in the fall. She went to preschool this year which was fun for her, but a total waste of time for me. Anyhow,I'm planning out her school year (I have to be a planner down to the T due to having 2 special needs children that are older). I need recommendations for the amount of time that would be appropriate for an almost 5 year old. She loves doing worksheets and some days I HAVE to cut her off. She'll sit and do them forever! That sounds great, but I will have to split the time up between subjects. I appreciate any guidance and suggestions.:bigear:
  14. I am starting Kindergarten with my oldest this year. :hurray: I also have a 3 year old and a 6 month old. We are going to be doing The Phonics Road to Spelling and Reading Level 1, Right Start A, Story of the World Volume 1, and Academy of Science for Kids Seeds. We plan on doing Phonics and Math daily, Science and History twice a week and Art on the fifth day. I am a very type A, make a schedule, kind of person. I've given us 2 hours a day to work on school. I have absolutely no delusions that we are going to be able to sit down and finish it all with out the 3 year old and the 6 month old needing me at some point. Does 2 hours sound like a good amount of time to accomplish Math, Phonics, and either Science, History, or Art, including interruptions?
  15. Does anyone have suggestions for a curriculum that teaches organization skills and time management for teenagers?
