We are new homeschoolers for the upcoming school year. We are getting an early start, and actually started yesterday. Smile My older 2 boys are in 3rd and 5th grades (for the upcoming school year). We're 100% using Rod and Staff curriculum.

We're doing homeschool in the AM 8:30-11:30 or 12.
With an active 2yo boy, I'm having difficulty figuring out how to divide my time between him and my homeschoolers.

Anyone have advice about how to make it work?

Thanks so much! Very Happy

This will be our 1st year homeschooling too & we have
an active 3yr old, but the advice i was given was to spend
time with the toddler 1st. "fill up his/her attention bucket"
& let them feel like they got their "mommy time" & when
school starts for the other 2 give him some colors, paper,
pencils, etc. & then he'll feel included in everything.

Thanks Proud Mama Smile My DS is a young 2yo, and he's just not into long periods of coloring, etc. I can really see that working for next year, tho, as my older 2 were both into art at age 3.
