Now I feel completely overwhelmed that I will not be able to spend the recommended times with each child and still keep school to 4 hours.
My kindergartner does not read and my 1st grader does not read enough to work completely independently. Spelling Power will be 15 minutes times 2 kids, Language Arts will be 15 minutes times 2 kids, and Singapore math has me practically in tears!!! All the while I have 2 1/2 year old twins making noise in the background. Any help on how to best apply my time or streamline things would be greatly appreciated. Right now I'm feeling extremely overwhelmed and as though this isn't going to work this year. Thank you in advance for any suggestions and/or encouragement.
I don't have a lot of advice for you but I would say that if you just started you may have to give it a little time to get into a groove that works for you. Don't give up yet. I'm sure that when others get the time you will get lots of good, experienced advice.
MFW is great. I only have 2 kids but others with lots more have been successful with this program and it works great for them as well. Hang in there.
I'm going to pray for wisdom and peace for you now.
