Wondering how much time others would devote each day/week to the following subjects for a 3rd grader with low reading/writing/spelling skills (he has high-functioning autism):

 

Math

Language Arts

Reading

Spelling

History

Social Studies

Science

Health

Art

Music

 

How about for a 5th grader that has down syndrome and is at a kindergarten learning level:

 

Math

Language Arts

Reading

Spelling

History

Social Studies

Science

Health

Art

Music

 

This is what we are currently doing:

 

3rd grader

 

Math: daily, about 20-30 mins/day depending on the complexity of the lesson

Language Arts: daily, about 20 mins

Reading: daily, about 20-30 mins (does not include family reading time or reading on his own for fun)

Spelling: daily, about 15 mins

History: 2 days/week, about 20 mins (done as a family)

Social Studies: 1 day/week, about 20 mins (done as a family)

Science: 2 days/week up to 30-45 mins depending on if there is a project involved (done as a family)

Health: 1 day/week, about 15-20 mins depending on if there's a project

Art: 1 day/week, about 20 mins (this is his favorite subject, he spends additional time on his own practicing)

Music: 1 day/week for 30 mins of formal lesson, 20 mins/day practice

 

5th grader

 

Math: daily, 10-15 mins

Language Arts: daily, 10-15 mins

Reading: daily, 10-15 mins

Spelling: 1-2 days/week, 10 mins

History: 2 days/week, about 20 mins (done as a family)

Social Studies: 1 day/week, about 20 mins (done as a family)

Science: 2 days/week up to 30-45 mins depending on if there is a project involved (done as a family)

Health: 1 day/week, about 15-20 mins depending on if there's a project

Art: 1 day/week, about 20 mins

Music: Pretty much daily for him, more about music appreciation, he has set goals to reach (i.e. learn a new song and sing it for us). His favorite subject, he would do nothing but music if we let him so we try to incorporate music into his lessons as much as possible, he learns it better. :)

 

All the times are instructional time, they don't include the time it takes them to complete a lesson unless stated otherwise (i.e. music lessons). And it's all subject to how cooperative the boys are, plus some days a lesson may be so short that I'll go ahead and do the next day's lesson as well depending on if they have a good grasp of the lesson. Thanks for any and all input. :001_smile:
