Hi Brenda-qfbrenda wrote:How much time does K require per day?
Is it doable while also schooling older kids? I have a 4th grader and one almost-2nd grader too.
Are the supplies easy to gather? I don't have lots of extra time for that.
Did you and your kiddo(s) enjoy it?
I'm thinking my 5 yr old could really use this. I didn't think so at first, since I already have math and phonics curriculum... but this looks like way more than that. And since I spend time schooling his older 2 brothers... spend time with the newborn and 2 yr old because, well, they just naturally require lots of attention. But sometimes the mellow 5 yr old kinda gets lost in the shuffle. I'm thinking this could help me make sure I spend time with him, without having to plan what to do ahead of time. Opinions please?
I am in the same situation as you. My 5 yr old get lost in the shuffle of the older kiddos and younger ones. I bought K for Brent and it takes us about 30-45 min for the depending on how much we do.
Because I am schooling the older ones and I do include Brent my 5yr old in their science & history, so I don't always do everything in the K TM. I usually pick about two things a week.
First we do MFWK math 10min.
Read the verse and talk about it 5min
Science 5min if I am only reading and about 15min. if we do more.
When we play phonics or math games it does take a little longer so maybe an hour tops =) but he's having too much fun so he doesn't realize it school ;)
I don't do this all in one sitting, unless Brent is willing to do that then I will.
Sometimes I will do his schooling in the evening.
