This Year’s Schedule

Standard

We officially have a week of school under our belts.  Just like last year..and all the years before..I need to tweak a few things from how I plan the schedule to how it actually works best for us.  Each year I get a little better at planning what fits us best and so we have less rearranging and so far I really like our schedule.  The main thing I’ve noticed is that it doesn’t take as much time to do some of the activities as I had planned.  That’s okay, though.  By the time we get through the year we often log close to double the number of hours the state requires and this gives us some leeway for when things do come up during the year.

For now, this is how our schedule looks:

I use the WholeHearted learning model from Educating the Wholehearted Child to plan out my day.  If you haven’t read this book, I highly recommend it.

In my schedule anything in pink is for Boo, blue is Buddy, purple is all of us together, and tan is for alone with Mom.  Each of the kids has their schedule in their planning books so they know what the day is supposed to look like.  Most of the time we are close to on schedule by lunchtime, but in the afternoon we get done an hour or two early.

So what does your schedule look like? Is it working out like you thought it would?
