This is very much like us. With my 4th and 6th graders, much of their work requires sitting still and working independently. We go over new things at first and then they work on their own until they get it all done, unless they have a question, and then I help them. They do science and history together.

With my youngest, who is just starting Kindergarten, we do more interactive things, though he does enjoy doing seatwork.

All my boys are low key kind of kids, and they prefer to get their work done and get on with their day. We work for around 3-3.5 hours most days.
