One of the reasons I am nervous to start homeschooling is that I am very laid back, not overly organized and can be a bit of a procrastinator. So, I have to have some type of schedule in place to keep us on track. I have been working on one the past couple of days, here is what it looks like right now....
8am : Breakfast....I plan on doing a cooking lesson here. I found an awesome website: http://www.nutritioninteractive.com Great way to teach reading and following directions, measurements and safety!
8:30 : Clean up/brush teeth/get dressed
9am : Addison's (preK) circle time (Days of the week, weather, sing songs)
During this time my 5th graders can work on their morning worksheets (1 Math, 1 Spelling)
9:30 : Addison's morning worksheets (trace and color shapes, letters/numbers, cutting practice)
During this time the boys can work on their Time4learning curriculum
10:30 : Snack/Read aloud...during snack I will read to the kids...thinking something like fun educational history books
11am...I *think* this is around the time the boys will go to specials at the school. If so, I will use this time to run any errands with Addison, go to the library or other things.
After specials we can work on the boys' writing assignment. I want to do the daily journal and some days will do writing prompts and some days free writing. On days that we have had field trips we will do a letter to the grandparents and on days that they finish their books they are reading for silent reading they can do a book report.
During this time I can do a craft with Addison.
The rest of the day will be free, then after dinner they can read 20 minutes in whatever chapter book they are reading.
Please feel free to give opinions on this and share what your schedules normally look like. Thanks:0)
