smgwynn Posted February 17, 2012 Share Posted February 17, 2012 Hello, I've been homeschooling for four years and have come to the conclusion that there has got to be a more peaceful way to go about it. I have a 5th, 3rd, K, and a 3 yo and 1 yo. We do TOG with a wonderful co-op. Next year my older three will be at three different levels of TOG and I'm borderline panicky about it. Are there any tips on keeping little ones happily occupied/feeling loved while trying to accomplish so much school with the big guys? Also, has anyone experimented with having older kids help teach younger ones. I was always so against 'using' older children to help school younger ones until #5 was born and time is so tight. They love spending time with their younger siblings and I'm starting to see how it could be mutually beneficial. Any thoughts? Oh, and I've been somewhat heavy on one-on-one intensive curriculum. I'm realizing that I need to change that if I want to keep my sanity next year. Problem is, I LOVE the one-on-one time. Oh-well. Any suggestions for replacement for FLL grammar? We've used it all along and I'm at a loss for what could be as good and also independent. Latin as well is a time taker. Any suggestions on independent or at least somewhat independent latin? Sorry for such a long post. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
