IsabelC Posted September 11, 2012 Share Posted September 11, 2012 (edited) If you are planning to do, say, some math (several children each working on their own level) followed by some history (doing this all together) what do you do when one child finishes before the others or one takes longer? Do you let the faster child take a break? Give her extra work to fill in the time? Give her another specific activity to do? Do you wait for the slower child to finish? Let him not finish all the planned work? Ask him to put it aside and complete it later? Just wondering, because I cannot seem to give my three kids the right amount of stuff so that they all finish at once. Mr 9 mucks about, whines, daydreams and wastes time so that even easy things take ages, whereas Ms 7 plods along steadily until she's done. Hare and tortoise. (Ms 4 flies through her work, but that usually works out OK as she can do reading, writing and math in the time it takes her brother to do one thing, and that fits with her 4yo concentration span).
