Last week I posted about our homeschool curriculum and planner, I hope to share with you our homeschool room soon. But today I will share our schedule will look like.
7:30 a.m. Breakfast for the whole family than morning chores
9:00 a.m. Our school bell will ring and we will gather around the table for pledge, prayer, and our calender time as well as Bible Devotions and Character Training. Than History or science and Art or Health (alternating days) we will do together. Than they will work on Math separately.
11:00 a.m. We will break for some free time and lunch around 11:30 a.m Everyone will help with clean up for lunch and either work on reading or some of their school work independently or go outside or free time inside.
Than by 1:00 to 3:00 P.M. We will get to independent work. Big Man and I will start with English because it is one we need to do together and then he will do spelling and handwriting. Little Man will work on Phonics, handwriting, Language arts.
Than by 4:00 P.M. They will do afternoon chores and then they are free to do their activities and we usually eat dinner by 5:30 P.M. Than we will read before going to bed.
Oh, But wait;
I have a toddler. Sis likes to be in the middle of the action defiantly doesn’t like to be left out. Which isn’t always a bad thing. I love that she likes to learn right along with the boys and we can adjust our routine and school day so that she can be involved. But she also likes to get into the books and things. So, finding her activities for her to do while the boys are working can be challenging sometimes.
“Commit to the Lord whatever you do, and he will establish your plans.” Proverbs 16:3
Life with a toddler is full of business and interruptions but that is life; full of interruptions. I know we will have days that we won’t get much accomplished and we will have days that we will get more accomplished than I would have imagine. Laundry won’t get done and some days we will probably be eating sandwiches for lunch and dinner. But when we started homeschooling, it wasn’t my choice. It was God‘s calling for our family. He had laid it upon my heart to homeschool my children and so I will have to let Him guide me into our school days. God is so much bigger than I am and I know He always has a plan for our life. I know that this is what He wants us to do so my days are left up to Him. We will commit to the Lord so that He can establish our plans.
