EMS83 Posted October 1, 2012 Share Posted October 1, 2012 Hi, I'm new to this board. I usually frequent the K-8 curriculum board, but this seems more appropriate to post here. My daughter's seat work, if focused on, takes just under an hour. It includes copywork, grammar, math, and phonics. I usually time her and switch to the next thing so that she isn't completely controlling the timeframe. If she hasn't finished, we go back to it at the end of the other activities. But this ends up with us basically cycling through these things 2-4 times each morning because she gets distracted by her 2 younger brothers. They are required to be quiet or leave the room and have their own brief activities, but she really just seems to want to be doing what everyone else is. Or have everyone else be doing what she is. Otherwise she flops around in her seat and talks to them. Our living room is the only work area available. So, does anyone have any advice or anecdotes? If anyone uses Love & Logic principles, how do you apply that to their work? Also, I really want to keep our afternoons reserved for free play/errands and I do not want to get rid of seat work.
