I can sympathize! I have a 6yo in grade one, a 5yo in Kindergarten, a 2yo, and a 1yo. Generally, I bring my oldest to the table first while allowing her brother to play quietly until we get reading out of the way (she needs the most concentration for reading). Then we move onto the subjects they do together (most subjects other than reading and math), I try to include the 2yo in these as much as possible as well (if they're painting, she does too, etc). Then I save math until nap time on most days, unless the babies are being especially cooperative.

A couple of things that you might want to try, that I've found useful, are toddler busy boxes/bags/activities. We're discovered that pipe cleaners and a strainer can provide hours of enjoyment! Another thing that has been a lifesaver for us is babywearing, we love the Moby when they're tiny and the Ergo as they get bigger
