One of the things I found myself wondering early on in homeschooling, was how did other families schedule their time? So today, I am sharing with you how we schedule our time (no need to wonder anymore)! 😉
7:30- Family Bible time
8:45- Xtra math (Hannah and Sarah), math assignment (Gideon and Izzy)
9am- Everyone works on math assignment
9:30- Math assignment (Hannah and Sarah), Xtra Math (Gideon and Izzy)
10am- Science (Botany- Gideon and Izzy), General Science (Sarah), Biology (Hannah)
10:30- History, vocabulary and read aloud
11:30- Writing (Gideon and Sarah), Writing and Grammar with Mom (Izzy)
Our afternoons consist of piano practice, Spanish on the computer, quiet reading, and finishing up any remaining school work and chores. We held pretty tightly to this schedule for the first few weeks of school. But it didn’t take long for Gideon to figure out that if he worked ahead, he could have more free time during the day. He is generally up around 6am and gets to work on his assignments around 6:30 or 7am most days. (What can I say? He’s an easy student!)
Our schedule always changes a bit from year to year as I evaluate what worked well the previous year, and what needs tweaking. But this seems to work well for us now. We start the day off by giving the first part of our day to the Lord. It seems to work well to have PE next because we burn a little energy and then we can focus on the harder subjects of the day: math and science. This worked a little more neatly at the beginning of the year when I held everyone to the schedule, but now it’s a lot more flex.

So how about you? If you are currently homeschooling, how do you schedule your time? I would love to hear what works well for you!!
