Attention Span: Under Optimal Conditions*
• Between ages 2 and 3 children have an attention span ranging from 3-4 minutes
• When children begin Kindergarten (approximately age 5), attention spans rise to a maximum of 5 to 10 consecutive minutes
• Between ages 6 and 8, the maximum time for focused attention, during instructional time, can stretch to 15-20 minutes when children are engaged in a single learning task.
• From age 9 to 12, the best estimates of an adolescent’s “focused attention” do not exceed 22 to 35 minutes, when they are engaged in learning.

Typical attention span: When trying to estimate realistically how much time a child can focus on one activity, you can use the following formula (source unknown):
Attention span for learning = chronological age + 1
For example, an eight-year-old child (8+1=9) would have a nine-minute attention span for a learning activity. This information can be quite useful when the tutor is planning his activities for the tutoring session. By planning a variety of literacy activities based on the child’s age and attention span, the tutor is more likely to maintain the child’s attention and limit inappropriate behavior.

Toma lá com 90 minutos aos 10 anos e não se fala mais em “interesse dos alunos”.
