A: As much as possible, I tried to keep my preschoolers in the same room or general area while we were doing school. During the summer, I would prepare special fun activities they could do to learn from while the others were doing their school. See Schooltime Activities for Preschoolers for a list of ideas we used
When teaching preschoolers with older kids, I spent 10 minutes with my preschoolers while the older kids were picking up clutter and getting ready to begin school.
Halfway through the morning, the older kids had snack time and again I would spend 10 minutes with my preschoolers. When the morning was over, the older kids would assemble sandwiches for lunch and I again spent 10 minutes with my preschoolers.
Knowing they would have these 3 times during the morning of my undivided attention, made it easier for them to do other activities while I spent time teaching the older ones school.
Beware of teaching things to your preschooler that are not true.
So much of the Bible could be hard to believe. I decided early on that I would not teach my kids fairy tales, Greek myths, or untruths, but only what was true so they could trust my words.
Let Philippians 4:8 be your guide.
“Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.”
