Homeschooling can be overwhelming. But having a homeschool schedule will help.
Planning will help reduce the stress and anxiety. Even if your daily homeschool schedule is very loose - organizing things will give a framework to your day.
Let me help you design a homeschool schedule that suits your family! Whether you want a traditional schedule or something more flexible and creative, you are in the right place!
|Thought I'd share an idea that works for us. |
We have a Friday Fun Day every week. I homeschool on a four hours a day , four days a week schedule - and if all goals have been achieved and weeks work completed, we have our fun day. In 8 years we have hardly missed a Fun Friday. On this day we watch educational dvds, work on projects, play educational games, go on nature walks, field trips etc. I have found that this helps to break the monotony of structured learning, encourage self disipline, responsibility and allows the child to learn work ethics. Should someone not be complete they may not participate (even though this is often harder on me than the child, I know that they are learning about choices and consequences). We incorporate art, craft and music in our daily program. Hope this is helpful to someone.

Here are some examples of traditional 'school at home' type schedules.
With this type of schedule then set subjects are planned out each day - often 5 days a week (but sometimes 4).
Think you have to do 'school at home'?
In fact, many successful homeschoolers use a variety of creative scheduling ideas. Here are some examples.
