For 15 minutes every day, Bobby is my star student. After that, he loses it. He starts fooling around with whoever is next to him and the pen in his hand is used for everything but math. Nothing seems to keep him on target for much longer. Yesterday, I hit upon a solution, a solution that won't cost any money--20 minute classes. (It takes him 5 minutes to settle down so the five minutes extra are necessary.) The only way to deal with the hyper active is to keep them moving.
