The kids were done with most of their work, aside from a history project and a quick artist write up, by 11:30 (we started at 8).
I should have them write done what order they did things in and test this out again, lol. We did do less history than normal, but everything else was pretty typical and for their writing they had fun journal prompts and wrote like 3x more than I requested.
They spent maybe another hour at the most working on the artist write up and the history project (one made the Nile out of clay and drew in the seas, and the other made a hut out of clay).
Do you think they could have been more focused with me being more focused on school? Or is it just a coincidence? I will also say DD had different math that was a bit less time consuming for her-and she didn't complain once! So that could have reduced the time a bit too. Oh and they listened to the bible during lunch, but that's what we usually do.
