    I have come to learn, with my son, that I can’t just sit down for a five or six hour time period and expect everything to be done and for him and I to both come away feeling good. We’ve learned, through trial and error, that if we can divide the classes and the day, we can do two classes at a time, take a 30-45 minutes break, come back, do 2 more classes, take a lunch break of an hour or so, then come back and finish whatever is left to be done, then at the end of the day, we’re both happier, less exhausted, and not so on our last nerves with one another. We support each other in a great way. I’m finishing up my bachelor’s degree while home schooling him, so we reward each other when grades come up and things like that. It works out really well. These ideas above are great. I wish I’d seen them sooner.

    Another variant on the “study dates” is “virtual study dates.” My 5th grade daughter uses Google Hangouts to connect with other Connections 5th graders virtually. They use the video chat sessions to study, meet, and sometimes they just leave the video up and the sound muted while they work independently.

    Great post! Really helpful and informative. My student suffers from a bad attitude about certain subjects. I plan on having a talk with her to understand the root of it. I think the reward system may be good for her but I don’t want her to feel like the only reason she should do well is to get something. She is in third grade. Will think more on this! Thank you!
