That scheduling post was a bust. It got off topic and stayed off topic. I didn't get what I was looking for out of it. So I am going to try this one more time. Hopefully, wording it better.
Excuse the typos, I am usually tired when here, and in a hurry.
Does anyone Create or Supplement lesson plans?
IF you do, how do you go about it?
Do you sit down once a year and schedule everything out? Or do you break it down into bits - like once every 3 mths, or every 6wks, or once a week?
Do you know everything that you will use, read and do?
How do you leave room for things that take longer or something you come across that you want to fit into the schedule?
I have a very restricted amount of time that I have in a day to cover materials - so going a little longer in the day is not an option. I have the max amount of weeks - and days in a week that I want to use for "school".
So while I do my scheduling, I am trying to think of how I can leave some extra room, if I need it.
I homeschool 4 hrs a day - 4 days a wk - 45 wks a year. (I work a ft job).
I was thinking of scheduling Mon-Wed and leaving Thurs open for "extra time" incase something takes longer or the kids and I come across something interesting that wasn't planned.
