Yes, it's do-able. I'm sure it will be a workout on some days, but a blessing definitely.

Your 10th grader will probably need a separate program and hopefully can do a lot on his or her own.

The other 3 may be able to work together, depending on what type of program you are looking at. Do you already have some materials narrowed down? I use My Father's World, and with that you would combine the younger 3 in history, Bible, art, music, and some other things.

The younger two could do science together, but the 8th grader would usually go into a junior hi science program such as Apologia's General or Physical Science, or Rainbow Science. It might even be possible to put the 6th and 8th graders together in middle school science, depending on how your 6th grader is doing. Then you'd just do some low-key science with the 3rd grader.

They'll each need math at their own level (unless two happen to be at the same level).

English is a huge subject & they could definitely do some things together, but things like grammar and independent reading will need to be grade-specific.

Well, there's a start to think about, anyways. Don't forget to give yourselves some breathing room this first year. It's good to keep a firm schedule, but what you do within that schedule can be flexible at first. I did math games with my youngest for probably the first 6 weeks.

And have some fun together!
