Tabrett Posted November 21, 2011 Share Posted November 21, 2011 I am only getting LA and Math done. My dc and I are spent after we finish those subjects and it is taking 4 hours for us to get done. It is not taking 4 hours each, but it is taking me 4 hours. I am pretty sure my 2nd grader has ADD and is slightly dyslexic. She can't work without me sitting beside her and constantly redirecting her attention. She will start to drift or ask me a question that is totally off the wall. Some days are better that others, but I never know when she will have a good day. My 1st grader is a boy..... he doesn't have any learning problems, but again, he is a boy and is more interested in Legos. So, I have to sit with both for every assignment. I have tried to do both of them at the same time, but that has been disastrous! My 2nd grader can't focus on anything with my 1st grader reading or me teaching a lesson. My preschooler tried coloring beside her today and she keep wanting to watch him and help him with his book.:glare: It seems that 2 hours is the maximum amount of learning time their brain can take. Breaks don't seem to help. It is more like I am starting all over again to get them settled down. Here is what they are doing: 2nd grader 1 page Cheerful Cursive 1 lesson of R&S Grammar orally or a write out sentences for her to create a worksheet. 1 section of R&S 2 Reader One lesson in CW Primer (she really likes this) 1 MUS lesson 1st grader 1 RME lesson with the corresponding worksheets which consists of copywork, writing a sentence and working with words. Read aloud to me a chapter in an easy reader 1 page in Thinking Skills 1 MUS lesson I am extremely consistent with the above, but feel like they are really loosing out. You can see in my siggy what else I have for them to do. It takes us from 9-2 including lunch to finish. When I add in the other subjects and/or my preschooler we are not done till 4.:001_huh: How can I get the other subjects in before their brain is fried?.....:confused: Also, my 4yo is getting left out completely!
