Hello super teachers! I’m calling you “super” because I’m realizing the true challenges involved in teaching little ones. I’m a retired teacher. Most of my experience has been at the 4th to 5th grade level or above (34 years). I took a job to teach/tutor twin boys - age 4 - 6 hours per week. Not having experience at this age level, I wondered what you all would suggest for a “schedule” over a two hour day - or do you think it would even be better to do one hour a day? I’m finding that attention is very short, and behavior worse if we don’t have frequent breaks. I am teaching in their home, and the parents have set up a room for us to use, but this has turned out to be harder than I expected. Tutoring in their home is distracting. They have a younger brother who is cared for by stay at home dad, but he wants to be with them, and they can hear him playing, calling to them, etc. They will jump up to leave the room - unless I stop them - which, of course ends in a power struggle. I have tried to create or work with activities that are no more than 10 minutes long (at this point that seems to be the extent of their ability to focus.). We are also using the Playing Preschool program, and they are enjoying it. But I feel like they really peter out after two or 3 ten minute activities - or behavior deteriorates and distractability increases. Thanks for your help ahead of time!
