Some ideas for keeping older ones occupied (I'm sure others have made suggestions on this site..Julie, Crystal may know the links..)mothergooseofthree wrote:After coming from another program for a couple of years, my oldest seems to have had a major drop in his work load by switching to MFW. Don't get me wrong, he is learning just as much and the old workload was more than I wanted. But, I still need him to be occupied while I work with the youngers on skills. So, for his "reading" on the schedule, I have been adding in all those great books that I want him to read. Then we only have a short book basket time since the youngers are still working on reading skills.
My boys usually work on Rosetta Stone (Spanish), Art, Drawing, other subjects,correcting math problems, copywork, bookbasket, chapterbooks, hobbies, letter writing.....oldest is learning to keyboard, piano practice, etc.
