First Day of (non) School
Just because we homeschool, doesn't mean we want to miss out on things like the first day of school! We are joining a co-op this year that meets once to twice a week, and we started this week with a visit to a local museum. The kids were excited, so we put on their new clothes and backpacks and started our new school year with a bang.
We have a revamped schedule we are working on. Here's what it looks like so far:
5:30 My Personal exercise
6:00 My personal time for prayer and scripture study
6:45 Family Scripture Study and prayer
Fold and put away one load of laundry together
Weekly Worky (Monday-make bread, Tuesday-dust/vacuum, Wednesday-bathrooms, Thursday-windows/mopping, Friday-according to need)
Personal Chores (Get dressed, brush hair and teeth, straighten room...)
9:15 Quick-Pick up
9:30 Pledge of Allegiance
Memorization (write out what we are trying to memorize that day, then memorize through actions, marching to the rhythm, taking turns saying lines...)
Mom School-A mini lesson on whatever I think is lacking (like symmetry/assymetry)
10:30 Read-aloud during snack
11:00 ROW to Know-Quiet, individual reading or writing time
12:00 Lunch-discuss what we learned during ROW
1:00 Quiet Time
1:30 Free Productive Time (pretty much anything except friends, media, or outside time)
(2:30 Errands if we have any)
3:00 Free Time
5:00 Everyone comes in to prepare for dinner time.
6:45 Family Read-Aloud
9:30 Grown-up bedtime
So, there you have it...our basic outline. And, yes, we are very flexible with it.
