It's hard with those particular levels, but I know that anything *can* be done.

Your problem is that you have:
1. A child learning to read - this really needs to be a focus for her
2. An elementary child - quite flexible but probably past learning to read & not yet ready for high school depth
3. A high school child - ready to study most subjects in depth, probably somewhat independent, and looking more seriously at the final stages of his education

The unit study I use (My Father's World) separates students out for these 3 levels. However, a certain amount could be done together. The older could *teach* science to the youngers. Some read-alouds could be done as a family. Art & music might be shared. You could all be on the same history topic at different depths. The Bible could be read together. Etc.

HTH, Julie
