As any good OCD homeschooling mom does, I have been relentlessly creating the perfect school day for the upcoming year. But before you laugh at my schedule let me just say 2 things...
#1 This is my first year homeschooling, and I think that must be like your first day of a new job or your first day of college where you really think you can conquer the world (fresh notebooks and all).
#2 I'm really more of a schedule "maker" than a schedule "follower". I like to make them, and re-make them, change them mid-course and all of that stuff, but really, I have a hard time following one...who knows???
So here is what our school day might will look like for my 2nd and 4th graders (maybe)...
8:00-9:00 Breakfast and chores
9:00-9:30 Bible (together)
9:30-11:00 Independent Learning (Math, Language, Spelling, Writing, and Piano)
11:00-11:30 History (together)
12:00-12:30 Quiet reading in their rooms
12:30-1:30 Mon. and Wed. SCIENCE / Tues. and Thurs. LITERATURE (together)
1:30-3:00 Mon. NATURE STUDY / Tues. PIANO LESSONS / Thurs. ART (together)
Trial run is on August 30th as we begin to ease into the school year...who knows what this thing will look like in May!!
I'm linking this post right on up to the Back to (Home) School Hop over at The Classic Housewife,
so head on over there and see what everyone else's day will look like this year!!!
