When does your homeschooling day start?
9am sometimes as late as 10am if the morning goes bumpy
Little Guy usually wakes up around 7, so 7:30, and then about 9 with Jamie.
9-10ish... I thought I would stricter on the start time, but I find its nice not to worry. My son loves that he can sleep until he wakes. Since we start so late, he gets to stay up later...which means more time with Dad.
Usually between 8:30-9am.
My kids are adults now and one is in college, the other one is looking for work so we don't homeschool anymore. When we did, we started at noon when I woke them up. I didn't mind them sleeping in but to get the extra curricular stuff done they needed to at least be up by then.
Whenever we get up and get started. Typically we are up around 8:30 and DD starts classwork by 9:30.
Whatever the flow is. Only ONCE before breakfast time has it got started before 9 a.m.--and the rest of times it's not until about 10/11ish. I have little ones that demand attention and I make sure they have their playtime first thing. So to start "school", they may get PBS kids and that's what everyone watches until breakfast. Then the day gets started right after clearing the table. I put an art project in front of them to complete as I read the bible lesson to them. We are done (depending on the cooperation and willingness to do the work) by 2:30-3:00 right before lunch. The reading can be afterward or as I am preparing lunch. But when we get started, we go until it's done unless I see the pent up energy and take about 30 minutes to an hour for outside time--in which it MAY go until 4pm--but never later. But even then, I grab the sidwalk chalk and their books and do lessons outside. I sneak them in with each child until it's completed. Yeah, I know, it's a late day...but it's MY home school...lol! AND I'm pregnant!
