I’m going to do a short series of posts titled ‘Daily Homeschool Schedule’ for you all. I’ve had countless questions about our homeschool schedule. And you can see a basic overview of our daily schedule here. But more specifically you’ve 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 for the next few weeks I’m going to share our schedule in a more detail by each grade level. Download a copy: Daily Schedule Prek – PDF Daily Schedule Prek – Word Doc (Editable)   Today we’ll be taking a closer look into the life of the Teeny Tot.

Our Daily Homeschool Schedule

OurFamilySchedule2012.jpg

I’ve had numerous questions on what our daily schedule looks like. While each day can bring on a life of it’s own, we do have a basic schedule and we stick to it for the most part barring any unforeseen circumstances! I find that our children do better with a general overall guideline of how their day will go. Here is our schedule….basically…provided nothing unexpected happens…like say the Teeny Tot decides to paint the floor with her new blue fingernail polish. 7:30 am – Shower/get dressed 8:00 am – Breakfast, and I start a load of laundry (I usually do 1 load per day, sometimes 2) 8:30 am – SCHOOL STARTS! 8:30 – Bible 9:00 – Math 9:30 – Spelling 9:45 – Handwriting 10:00 – English/Snack 10:30 – Reading 11:00 – Free Reading Time (Kids can pick any book they want, but must read for 15 min.) 11:15ish – LUNCH BREAK (Switch out laundry to dryer) 12:15 – History/Science (Alternate doing each 2x per week) 12:45 – Piano/Typing (Alternate doing each 2x per … [Read more...]

What’s A Typical Day Like?

What is my typical day like? I had someone ask and didn't think I could fit it in comments LOL! So here goes...please keep in mine that we are flexible as we have a baby, and unforeseen events daily it seems that cause us to veer off course, but Steady as she goes is my moto! Often you'll hear "Back to boxes!" coming from me (every few minutes it seems)...especially with the boy who has taken to 'disappearing' between boxes, or when we have to stop an activity because the baby has opened a drawer and emptied its contents all over the school room. Wednesdays are different as the girls have dance from noon-2, so we just start earlier to accommodate this. And I've kindly spared listing the billion times a day I save my baby from choking hazards and falling off the stairs to her death. Oh and the 3am feedings that we still do because I can't stand to let her 'cry it out'. But...with all that said, here's our 'plan' for each day, and I really DO try to follow it! Okay, are you … [Read more...]
