Could you give me an idea of what your basic schedule for 2nd grade would look like? I have tried setting it up like 'school' with a half hour for each subject so my daughter doesn't get stuck on the same subject for a long period. Whatever she doesn't finish becomes 'homework' which means it's done in the afternoon when she would normally have free time. This is not working. Letting her work at her own pace isn't working either b/c she isn't very motivated. Not sure what to do. We haven't had the time to do history or science for the past few weeks b/c we are both getting burnt out on the normal school subjects. I am very tempted to change things up drastically and see how that works. So do history and science (b/c they are hands on activity based) first each day. Then have her read to herself for a half hour and either act out or tell me what happened. Then do flashcards for math. Math and reading are the major subjects she has 'stalled out' on. Any suggestions are welcome.
