Hi everyone! I’ve had a lot of requests to see what my 8th grader’s homeschool day looks like. So today I’m sharing her schedule with you. Keep in mind, this is a flexible schedule. Some days a subject might take her longer than others. And so she may finish a little earlier, or later depending on her workload for the day. She currently has an average of 4-5 hours of school per day, plus sports in the afternoons. So far this schedule is working well for her.
Now I know I have homework listed on her schedule, and some of you are probably wondering about that. She uses this time to catch up on any work she didn’t finish during the day, as well as work on her writing assignments. We’re doing IEW Writing and we’ll usually watch the video during class on the first day, sometimes it takes two days to complete longer videos. Then she’ll get a writing assignment that will be due later in the week or the following week depending. So she uses her homework time to work on those assignments.
She will also occasionally have homework from her options program, and so she can work on it during her homework time as well.
