At 12 and 13, your oldest two should be able to do much of their schoolwork on their own, and just need you or a relative available to ask questions and help with science experiments.

If you can combine subjects to include both of them - such as both do the same history and the same science - that will help you a lot.

There are computer curricula available as well as video programs which you may want to use for a subject or two to keep "school" interesting and not have it be all book work -- unless you have a student who loves book work!

My kids are 13 & 14. I have them in the same grade to make life easier. They take turns doing language arts and math on their computer, history is book-reading, and science was a textbook plus the audio CD, so they could listen and read together. Spanish was DVDs and videos. I also supplemented subjects with educational DVD's and videos, some bought, some borrowed from the library.

There are educational programs made for every style of learner - visual, auditory, kinesthetic, even musical! My dd recently discovered a science tape of facts set to rhyme and music that she is enjoying. She learned her math facts from a musical tape as well. You will need to research your options and try not to be overwhelmed!
