My big girl is getting to a place where I can start giving her more independent work. She prefers working with me, but I can at least give her something to read or get started on without me, while I work with her little sister.
I’m thinking of ways to rework our workbox plans to fit with our Weaver curriculum and I have a question for those of you with bigger more ‘independent’ kids.
Do you set out an assignment or list or set of assignments for the entire week and let them pace themselves or do you split it up into separate days and assign it a little at a time?
I’m wondering if she might do better if I let her know up front what is expected by Friday and give her some freedom to do it at her pace (provided it gets finished) OR should I keep feeding her assignments according to my schedule?
What works for you?
