After a few weeks of homeschooling, I thought I would take the opportunity to share what our homeschooling schedule looks like. We of course want our “school” time to be enjoyable. Flexibility is crucial but we also want some predictability for my daughter’s sake (and mine).

Here is what I’m incorporating into her days:

Monday

Bible Studies – Bible study lesson
Art – Art appreciation and art journal
Language Arts – Language arts lesson and reading
Math – Jump Math workbook
Social Studies / Practical life applications – Mondays we explore practical life applications such as cooking, sewing, building, gardening, community exploration, banking, budgeting, and shopping.
Physical Education – KungFu lesson

Tuesday

Bible Studies – Bible scripture review and daily devotional
Art – art appreciation and art journal
Language Arts – language arts lesson and reading.
Math – Life of Fred and hands-on math
Science – experiential science and nature study
Physical Education – Yoga
*Music

Wednesday

Art – art appreciation and art journal
Language Arts – language arts lesson and reading
Math – Jump math workbook
Social Studies – Experiential learning activities
Physical Education – Dance and creative movement
*Her choice of exploration

Thursday

Art – art appreciation and art journal
Language Arts – language arts lesson and reading
Science – experiential science and nature study
Health – Experiential learning
Physical Education – KungFu lesson
*Art lesson

Friday

Bible Studies – Bible scripture review and daily devotional
Art – art appreciation and art journal
Language Arts – language arts lesson and reading
Physical Education – Yoga
Fridays are used to participate in large social activities and/or field trips.

Our School Day

Our studies usually begin by 8:30 am
We take a break at 9:30 / 9:45 am for snack and outside time
10:15 / 10:30 resume studies
12:00 lunch

We are usually done our studies by 12:00 every day, with the exception of Mondays and Fridays, we finish a lot earlier (hence we have time for the practical life applications on Mondays and the field trips on Fridays).

So far our schedule is working really well. As mentioned previously, we allow for some flexibility but it’s nice to have some predictability as well.
