Elementary aged children with ADD and ADHD pose special issues for any teacher. If you are homeschooling a spirited child, you can really make a difference in their learning by simply eliminating distractions and giving them choices.
When choosing a spot for the child to sit, don't pick one by a distraction (like the window) or the urge to pay attention to what is going on elsewhere will be too great. Instead, choose a few spots that you find appropriate and then give your elementary school student an option of choosing one of the places you've pre-determined.
