Hi everyone! As promised I have another post in the ‘Daily Homeschool Schedule’ series for you all.

As mentioned last week, I’ve had countless questions about our daily schedule. And you can see an overview of our daily schedule here.

But today I wanted to share Tinker Bell’s schedule with you. She’s currently 7 years old, and in 2nd grade.



This year we are doing quite a bit of things. Some days have been challenging due to our recent move. But we’re remaining flexible and at the very least getting our core work completed each day!

Our 2nd grade schedule is as follows:

  • 8:30am – Breakfast / Family Devotions
  • 9:00am – Calendar Time (Tinker Bell helps Teeny Tot during this.)
  • 9:15am – Bible
  • 9:30am – Math
  • 10:20am – Phonics Lesson
  • 10:40am – Language Lesson
  • 11:00am – Reading
  • 11:20am – Handwriting
  • 11:30am – Spelling
  • 11:45am – Vocabulary
  • 12:00 – Lunch/PE
  • 1:00pm – History
  • 1:30pm – Science
  • 2:00pm – Typing/Music/Art/Piano (1x per week)
  • 2:30pm – Literature

As you can see we do most things on a daily basis right now. Normally I alternate History and Science so we’re doing them 2x per week, but this year’s Abeka curriculum requires daily work.

You can see a full list of Tinker Bell’s actual curriculum below. We are trying out a few new things this year. So far it is going well.

The only thing I don’t totally love is the Wordly Wise program. I’d love to hear anyone else’s suggestions for vocab!

Have a comment to share on how.you organize your day? Make sure to leave it below!


  1. Wow! What a schedule! Are you still able to keep to that tight of a schedule?? I was never able to do that. My boys would have gone bonkers…I guess its a blessing that each family can do what is best for them. I am going to miss hsing SO much! My youngest graduates next year. What am I ever going to do in 2017??
    Blessings to you all

  2. Thank you for this schedule! On vocabulary– my son constantly asks “what does this word mean?” So I’ve started cataloging the words he is asking about and just keeping a record of the new words he is learning. We will review those words –usually in the car to and from places—and if when I look over his list for the week I feel like he needs to be learning more new words than he asked about naturally, I will choose words from his books we are reading to teach him specifically. Sometimes I try to use synonyms or alternate words for things he already knows how to say. For example, he knows how to say “do something correctly” so I might teach him the word “properly” or “appropriately” and we will discuss the differences in those three words. He cannot always spell them at 6 years old, but he broadens his spoken vocabulary this way. I know you were probably wanting a curriculum recommendation, but hopefully this idea is helpful to you with whatever book you choose.

    Again, thank you for the suggestions on scheduling! I am extremely type A and I love a good plan! 🙂

  3. Hello, Erica. I read through the conversation’s and I’m highly inspired and motivated to homeschool my son. I live in Houston, Texas and wants to homeschool my school. Please, I need all the information and advice to get started on this homeschool journey. I’m thinking of using Abeka Curriculum and I, see that you used it too. Do you have a list of recommended books, materials, visuals etc. Please, any information will be very helpful.

  4. I am homeschooling my 2nd grader and she does not like school. I know most kids don’t like school but since I homeschool I want it to be different. Are you doing mostly paperwork with her? I have 2 other small kids so it’s hard to do fun great experiments and projects. I feel like we’re just surviving through it to get done what we’re supposed to. I want it to be enjoyable for both of us. Any tips?

    1. She does a mix of things, worksheets, plus hands on things as well. I try to make it fun for her by including in art projects, hands on activities, field trips, etc. But worksheets also serve a purpose in our homeschool to make sure she can do activities on her own that are not led by me as well. Homeschooling is flexible, you can use whatever method suits you best 🙂

  5. Do you have a schedule template that doesn’t have your subjects in the boxes? I’m trying to put together schedules for my three kids that don’t have them doing the same subjects at the same times because sometimes I need one to do more of their independent work while I’m doing another subject that requires more instruction.
