alisoncooks Posted September 11, 2012 Share Posted September 11, 2012 I'm curious what others do when transitioning from 1 subject to the next in your daily line-up. Right now, DD & I are hitting math and reading fairly fairly hard (for her) -- we did a very relaxed K year (read: little to no formal schooling) -- and now we're up to around 30 min. for both math & phonics/reading times. Our other subjects are less structured and mostly after lunch. I've scheduled reading and math in the morning, first thing ... though I'm torn as to which subject to schedule first, since she seems to be good for about only one of them (seems tired/out of sorts when I pull out subject #2). SO....I'm thinking I need to schedule some "down time" or breaks between math & reading. What do you do? For how long? Do you have a hard time getting your children "back to school" if you let them "go" in the middle of school time? (Or maybe I shouldn't just let her go play, but maybe give her 10-15 min. scheduled computer play time -- which she loves -- or scheduled hands-on learning toy type play time between subjects). I hope this all makes sense.... I'd appreciate any tips/feedback from those that have BTDT! THANKS! :) Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
