DragonFaerie Posted September 4, 2012 Share Posted September 4, 2012 Does anybody use different types of schedules for each of their kids? I tried the timed block schedule today (ie. 9:00 - 10:30 Language Arts; 10:30 - 11:00 math; etc.). DD loved it, stayed right on schedule, and finished school with time to spare. DS, on the other hand, was totally stressed out by the time factor and was freaking out over running out of time on things. What did work for him was doing his assignments in the order I assigned (instead of having the freedom to choose, which takes him forever!). So now I'm thinking that I will continue with the timed schedule for DD, and for DS, I won't assign any time constraints, but I will continue to assign his work in a specific order (getting his more frustrating subjects done earlier in the day and saving the fun stuff for last). Does anybody else have to work with different schedules/planning styles for their kiddos? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
