My 5 yr old is only working for about 30-45 mins. Depending on how my 8 yr old works he normally finishes his work under 2 hrs. Should I be expecting them to work longer?? Or as long as we are covering the work should I not worry? Also how many subjects do you do? And how many pages of each subject?
Today for example I did Science, History, and Heath with the boys. I read a section (which is normally 2 or 3 pages) and read the review questions. We discussed it! Then my youngest homeschooler practiced at and an word on starfall and read Zac the Rat book! Then he did 1 math page and 1 Letter and Sounds page from his abeka books. I normally have him practice writing something as well but I didn't today. My oldest read 1 story from his Read & Think which is what I have him using right now for reading (He has struggled in reading but really has improved this year. I am planning to finish the Read & Think this year and then add addition reading next year) Then he did one page of Math and one page of English. We have given up on spelling this year. I will introduce it again next year in hope that with his reading improving his spelling will to.
But that is practically our days work. Occasionally we throw in an art. But we really dont have extra subjects not sure if I should throw it in or not!
