Since I posted our actual schedule earlier this year, I thought that I would take you through what our day is like and how it is going. I really, really like the way our schedule is working so far. They kids are..ahem..less than thrilled about getting back into a routine, but the routine itself works great.
We start our morning off with chores. I get the kids up around 7:30 and they are supposed to do all of their chores and be ready for Bible time at 8:15. We aren’t always exactly on time, but we come close most days. Here are our new chore charts that I made using this idea that I found on pinterest:
I put all of the chores I want done that day on the “to do” side and they move the pins over to the “done” side as they finish, so I can quickly check and see what has been done.
Next up is Bible time, which lasts somewhere from about 8:15 until 9:00 and includes quiet time, together Bible study, and character lessons.
From about 9:00 to 10:30 we do language. Buddy and I work together first while Boo does her independent work and then we do vocabulary together before we switch.
10:30-11:10 is Math time. I start with Buddy while Boo spends some time on the computer. Then, we switch again and Buddy gets his turn on the computer while Boo and I work together.
Before lunch we also do our history or geography work from Explorations to 1850 and our Canada Study time.
We have lunch at 12:00, followed by our literature time. By this time it is around 1:00. At 1:00 we do art or music, depending on the day of the week. Starting next week , we will be going to Homeschool Co-op on Thursday afternoons. We finish up the day with Science, Life Skills, and piano practice.
My original schedule had us getting done around 3:30, and most days we are done about 2:30. That gives us time to go to the Y and swim or have a walk before we get ready for our evening activities. So far we are just back into Tae Kwon Do on Tuesday and Thursday nights. Soon we will add AWANA on Wednesdays and piano on Mondays.
I always enjoy seeing how other people schedule their days. I hope you enjoyed a peek into ours!
