kfeusse Posted August 29, 2012 Share Posted August 29, 2012 how much time is spent on the various subjects? IF you do or if you mostly do....I have a few questions for you...or even if you don't...maybe you can help me with my questions too (from the other side of the topic). Oh, I have 2 in the logic stage and 1 in the grammar stage. This is how our school looks...I put these worksheets in a folder and they start this in the morning: grammar, spelling, math, logic, handwriting, phonics sheet (ETC) and sometimes a Science worksheet (this is a review of yesterday's science lesson...we will do Science again later). Plus we do Latin and History later in the day. They usually start around 8:00 and the kids are usually done with all of that is about an hour or so...depending on how much they piddle around. So this just simply doesn't seem like we are doing nearly enough (time wise)...but I don't know for sure. So here are my questions... 1) they recommend an hour of logic 3 x a week for the 2 older kids...what do you consider "logic"....mind puzzles come to mind for me...but I can't afford an hour of Mind Bender puzzles for them 3x a week. So what else?? 2) if I do the Math lesson of the day (we use MUS), there is no way that it usually takes them the 40-60 minutes recommended...so what else do I do? I know that could include drilling math facts as well...but waht else? 3) what an hour of grammar (for the older 2) and 20-30 minutes for my youngest....we do GWG and we do one worksheet a day...takes no where close to the time we are to spend...so then what? Writing and reading are sort of a no brainer...so I am ok there, I think. please share your thoughts on the topic for me...I would really appreciate it.
