A Homeschooling Mom’s Daily Schedule

Hi everyone, have you ever wondered how I do it all? How I homeschool, work from home, and keep up with daily life? Well, I think the last time I posted about our daily schedule was about 4 years ago, so I thought maybe it was time for an update! Ya think? LOL!     While each day can bring on a chaos of its own, we do have a basic routine that we try to stick to. Obviously things don’t always run smoothly around here, and some days are crazier than others. But I like to at least have a basic guideline to get me through the day. As most of you already know, we homeschool. For me that’s like my full time job, and I do my best to focus solely on school during those hours. I also work from home on my blog, creating YouTube content, and I create homeschool curriculum as well as free printables.  Those all take up quite a bit of time, so without some planning I’d never be able to get those things done! I try to view that as a part-time job and have to plan work … [Read more...]

2015 7th Grade Homeschool Schedule

I don’t know about you, but 7th grade is a little bit intimidating! It just seems like things start getting more serious around now. High school is on the horizon, and this mama can’t believe that her baby girl is officially in Jr. High! If you’ve been following my daily schedules you’ll notice I’m in denial about my kids getting older! Strawberry Shortcake (who is now almost as tall as I am) is growing into an amazing young lady with talents and interests all her own so it’s a really cool time. She’s an amazing artist, and has a very creative nature which just amazes me. Strawberry Shortcake is currently 12 years old, and will turn 13 next January. 13 people! She’s starting seventh grade this year and here’s her line up: Download a copy: 7th Grade Daily Schedule – PDF 7th Grade Daily Schedule – Word Doc (Editable)   Here’s our Basic 7th Grade Schedule: 8:30am – Breakfast / Family Devotion Time 9:00am – Calendar Time & Pledge of … [Read more...]

2015 4th Grade Homeschool Schedule

Hi everyone! I’m back today with our 2015 4th grade daily schedule. Honestly I can’t believe that Tinker Bell is in the 4th grade this year! She’s still a first grader in my eyes. So when I was planning her year and adding 4th grade subjects to her list I can honestly say I shed a few tears. They really do grow up so fast! But my sentimentality won’t stop time, and so I persevered and came up with a 4th grade schedule for my sweet girl. Tinker Bell is 9 years old, she’ll turn 10 in February.

2015 – 1st Grade Homeschool Schedule

I spent the weekend planning with some friends, and I think we’re ready to go! Each year I do an overview of our basic daily schedule by grade level. Hopefully this will help those of you who wonder how many times per week we do certain subjects, and how long we spend on each one as well. In our state we’re required to do 172 days per year averaging 4 hours per day for any students 6 years or older. And this year that applies to all of my kiddos! I’m expecting it to be a crazy year, but hopefully with everything planned out it won’t be too bad. I’m going to start off sharing Miss Lady Bug’s schedule today. She’s currently 6 years old, she’ll turn 7 in November! Eeek! She’s starting first grade this year and here’s her line up: Download a copy: 1st Grade Daily Schedule – PDF 1st Grade Daily Schedule  – Word Doc (Editable) Here’s our Basic Kindergarten Schedule: 8:30am   – Breakfast / Family Devotion Time 9:00am   – Calendar Time & … [Read more...]

Hello! Today I’m sharing Tinker Bell’s 3rd grade homeschool schedule with you. Tinker Bell turned 9 in February and is doing great this year.   Here is a sample of her schedule. She often works through her assignments faster than what I scheduled. But I don’t want to over-fill her day, so I still spread it out like this so that she has plenty of time.   Download a copy: 3rd Grade Daily Schedule PDF 3rd Grade Daily Schedule Word Doc (Editable)   Here is our basic 3rd Grade Schedule: 8:30am – Breakfast / Family Devotions 9:00am – Daily Learning Notebook 9:15am – Bible 9:30am – Math 10:30am – English 11:00am – Handwriting 11:20am – Reading 11:30am – Spelling 11:45am – Vocabulary 12:00 – Lunch/PE 1:00pm – History / Science 1:30pm – Typing/Music/Art/Piano (1x per week) 2:00pm – Writing / Literature (2x per week) 4:00pm – Swimming & Inline Hockey…Yes, she plays hockey and she’s great at it!

2015 5th Grade Homeschool Schedule

Hello readers! Today we’re taking a closer look at the 5th grade daily homeschool schedule that Turbo has been doing this year.   This is basically an outline of our day and things do change up a bit here and there. But for the most part, this is the schedule that Turbo is following this year. I didn’t let him pick an elective class this year, but I think I’ll allow everyone to pick one next year since Strawberry Shortcake’s photography class went so well. We switched things up a little this year, and instead of doing history and science everyday, we now alternate them doing both only twice per week. I did have to pick units for our science because we won’t get through the whole book in one year now, but several of them were repeats for us anyway. And I prefer alternating them each twice a week rather than trying to do both daily. Turbo is currently 10 years old, and in the 5th grade. He definitely has a filled schedule this year, but he’s doing great! Download a copy: … [Read more...]

Kindergarten Daily Schedule

A few years ago I did a series of posts titled Daily Homeschool Schedule for you all. Since then I’ve had countless questions about our updated homeschool schedule, and specifically for my kindergartener since I didn’t do one at that time. You can see a basic overview of our daily schedule here. You’ve also been asking questions about how long we do each subject, how many days per week, and what our day looks like hour by hour for each grade level. So I thought maybe these posts would help out! So for the next few weeks I’m going to share our schedules in a more detail by each grade level so you can see what we’re up to. Today we’ll be taking a quick look at my kindergartener’s schedule. We do a co-op on Friday’s so her calendar has Friday’s blank.   Download a copy: Daily Schedule Kindergarten – PDF Daily Schedule Kindergarten – Word Doc (Editable) Here’s our Basic Kindergarten Schedule: 8:30am   – Breakfast / Family Devotion Time … [Read more...]
