Get rid of the TV. Do not use television or video games as a baby sitter for toddlers while older children are receiving instruction. The disruption of switching on entertainment takes older children out of the realm of imagination and interaction. Use more engaging activities to keep everyone has eyes and minds on higher things. Pull younger children back into the teaching time for activities with a strong tactile component. If you are taking a child or children through a science lesson and you are going to peel an orange and observe the structure of the fruit, that iss a great activity to pull younger ones into. With an extra orange, the simple act of controlling the times that they are allowed to "join in" keeps you in the drivers has seat.
Play is how children utilize this particular learning style. Play is one of the most powerful vehicles for facilitating learning. When you play with your child you are demonstrating how much you value them and enjoy their company. This helps build self-esteem and many studies now reveal that children with high emotional intelligence will outperform children with higher IQ but lower self esteem. In the UK questions are being asked regarding whether children are given enough time to simply play. The pattern seems to be that children are given more time to play during their early years in school but towards the middle years a more formal approach dominates their school day. Emeritus Professor Barbara argues that the tendency for state education to focus on a more formal, left-brain orientated approach to learning can have disastrous implications for a significant percentage of children, particularly boys, who tend to be predominantly tactile learners.
Stick to your lesson plan for the day and get it done. Smaller children are masters at sensing weakness. Give them something to avoid - an energized execution of a well-planned day. They will sense that you are in the teaching zone and will show more respect for your strong presence as you work through your plan. Smaller children are one of the hardest factors to handle in homeschooling. But you can do it if you stay in the lead with each student as well as each future student.
