oh, and I think we will be doing MathUSee.   It gives a video lesson, a couple pages teaching from the video lesson, and then SEVERAL pages of practices, real life application practice, and review and assessment.   I think it would be perfect for what I'm thinking.

Thank you for the helpful points I will try this year


Quoting KrissyKC:

If it's required by law to do "math" every day, then you don't have to do a whole class of math.   You could just do some quick review and maybe some math play, manipulatives, or a few worksheets.   Then focus on the ones you want to focus on that day.

When you aren't focusing on English and writing, you can just do handwriting and/or journal time briefly and then move onto those subjects.  

You could still do a rotating schedule, but just throw in some things like I did my "daily do's"..   Make 15 minutes of flash cards and some time working with money or fractions part of your daily do's as well as 15 minutes handwriting and 15 minutes journal.  You would have some math and some writing every day.
