A Typical Day in Our Homeschooling World
Is any day in life typical?? And if it always was, wouldn't life be pretty boring?
In our home, we don't aim for the 'same' everyday, but instead we aim for consistency.
Consistency helps me feel like everything is okay. That my world is somewhat under control. The house isn't crazy messy, the messages not piling up, the school work collecting dust in the corner.
I realize this is only a snapshot of where we are at as a family now. I'm sure it'll continue to change as we grow & mature in age, and experience of homeschooling.
~Our 'Aimed For' Homeschool Schedule~
7-8:00 a.m. wake up & Mommy feeds baby

9:30-10:00 a.m. dressed & chores
10-12:30 p.m. school work
English, Math, French, Aim for Science & Social Studies
Younger Ones (6 & 8 year old) Work With Mommy
Older Ones (12 & 13 year old) Work Independently
12:30-1:30 p.m. lunch & break
1:30/2-4:00 p.m. school work & when finished then free play/gym/art/music
Usually I work with older ones on their harder subjects.
4-5:00 p.m. free play, outside time, or even cooking/baking with Mom
5:00 p.m. Supper Prep
Throughout our week we also have: group studies on different topics, field trips (usually a couple per month), art & crafts with other families, and in the warmer weather some hikes are thrown in there.
