Repost: Helping Our Students Focus

I feel like things have been a little crazy around my house.   Every time I turned around it seemed like I'd lost someone.  They were disappearing to rooms and other places away from their studies.  

I felt like I had to do something to get them back on focus.  I thought about it and I came up with 3 questions to ask them each hour.

1. What have you done?

2. What are you doing now?

3. What are you going to do next?

This has worked surprisingly well.  I did this for a few days and then stopped and everyone was doing better at being on task.  It was rather painless for me.  My son made a chart for me.  Here is a copy in case you'd like to try it.

Thank you. It seems like there are seasons that just are harder.
