aprilsblessings Posted July 27, 2012 Share Posted July 27, 2012 Ok, I seem for some reason to be at a stand still with getting all of our subjects going. I can't seem to decide the best way to schedule our schooling (daily) so that it isn't as crazy as it was. Maybe I am dreaming and it will just be this crazy for awhile with the ages of kids I have??:lol: My kids are 6 1/2 1st grader, 5 K, 3 1/2 year old, 1 1/2 year old, baby due at the end of October. I have toys and educational things for the youngers but my problem is actually with my older. He fights me a lot and so we were only getting phonics, math, and maybe some copywork and then I was sooooo ready to be done! So I am trying to figure out when the best time is to do these subjects with him and then with my next dd and still manage everyone else without losing it. Can anyone relate? Some options I have come up with: A somewhat strict schedule that lays out what each child is doing at every moment. (Then how do you get them to do that at these ages, right?):tongue_smilie: Try to do a round table with the subjects, get them started, then help the next one, then go back, and so on. Do my sons phonics and math at rest time (not ideal because I would like a rest too). ??? Any other ideas of what has worked with your family when you have many little ones who are unable to do independent work? TIA! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
