  1. Staying focused is a big issue. Little breaks here and there are the only thing I’ve tried so far but it seems to work ok.

  2. Focusing is a huge problem with some of my children! My 8 year old is the worst in this area. She’s always lost somewhere else when she’s supposed to be working on her schoolwork.

  3. We try to take breaks especially when things are not working out in our homeschool and I need to try something new to turn things around.

  4. I love the flexibility of homeschooling. We can spend more time in an area of interest and not have to squelch self directed learning. I also love that we can focus on character development.

  5. I try to only spend an hour or two sitting the rest is free play or learning by doing. It saddens me that non-homeschool kids in my area only get 15 mins of recess.

  6. We don’t have a long “school” day because of the fact that it is way to hard for any of us to day still that long. We move “school” around the house. Reading on the couch, learning board games and writing at the table, learning card games on the floor…you get the idea. I always let the girls do “school” the way they want to at the time (standing up, laying on the floor, sitting, etc.). As long as their trying their hardest, it works for me!

  7. I didn’t have any trouble until recently (several months ago). We have been taking short exercise breaks, hula hooping to music, jump rope games, dance together, run outside, and we may change subjects to use a different side of the brain. I am curious what other ideas are included in this book and would love to read it. Thank you for the chance to win.

  8. We have improptu dance parties, which seem to help redirection. 🙂 We also take a break to color, which helps as well!

  9. We do our short lesson in the morning and then after lunch we do some of our other subjects and switch around. They will take turns on the computer (for science right now) while I work with the others on other subjects.

  10. We try to keep our lessons short, unless everyone is having too much fun to stop, which helps a lot! When the kids are having serious issues with settling down and focusing I will often tell them to go run laps or do some jumping jacks to wear off some of their wiggles 🙂

  11. We do this but could definitely use some ideas. Sometimes I just put on a song everyone can really dance to.

  12. They do have trouble sometimes, I am more of a power through it kind of mom, but have found that focusing on a craft helps us to calm down and be ready to get back to work.

  13. Yes the kids have trouble concentrating! I just do whatever works at the time. Taking a break and doing something different sometimes, or else I tell them they can finish the sentence/sum/activity they’re on, and leave the rest until later.

  14. We absolutely need breaks. We usually get up and dance to music or take a walk or bike ride in good weather or do jumping Jack’s or something to get up and move and”get the wiggles out” before trying to refocus.
