Our Daily Schedule

I just thought I would take the time today to share our daily schedule. I like Charlotte Mason’s idea of short lessons, moving from one thing to something different in an effort to keep the child interested. I tried to keep this in mind as I created this schedule. I have divided our school year into six terms, and this schedule is for Term 1, as I plan to make changes to the schedule when cooler weather comes. We school Tuesday – Saturday because of my husband’s work schedule. Although, as fellow home schooler’s know the learning truly doesn’t stop just because the weekend comes.

So here it is……..

 As you can see, I do not assign specific times for subjects to happen, but instead a certain amount of time to finish each subject. You will see a few things on here twice, and that is because some things are for my son and some for my daughter.

Morning Meeting is really something great to add into your homeschool if you do not already. There are lots of ideas out there as to what to incorporate into morning meeting, and others call it by other names as well. For us, morning meeting includes; bible, prayer, memory work, singing hymns, fact memorization(right now we are working on skip counting), and reading a loud. Sometimes I read unrelated picture books, other times I read books related to our science or history studies. We also read poetry.

In the mornings we spend time outside, usually taking a walk or going to the park, or just in the backyard. Yes, I schedule the Farmer’s Market onto our schedule, because we go every week and we all enjoy it and this is something that will only be available through October. Saturday’s are what you would consider our light days. On Mondays we sometimes take field trips, but this is not considered a part of our school schedule. For example, last Monday we visited the zoo but we still did our normal Tuesday-Saturday schedule.

Feel free to ask any questions!

God Bless.
