Homeschool Schedules In Our House With two 6th Graders

My oldest daughter Kat (12 yrs. & 6th grade) is homeschooled (I also have a 9 yr. old who attends public elem.). Kat & her best friend Mar (also 6th grade) attend a homeschool. Sometimes it's at our house; sometimes at Mar's house. I can only speak for the schedule when we have school at our house.

7:15-7:30 : Kat wakes up & eats breakfast
7:30-8:15 : Gets ready (hair, clothes, etc.)
8:30-8:50 : Mar arrives & we plan out what we want the main subjects of the day to be (we spend extra time on these subjects)
8:50-9:00 : Gets everything set up & gets supplies.
9:00-9:45 : English (spelling, writing, etc.)
9:45-10:15 : Math (Kat does Pre-Algebra; Mar does regular 6th grade math)
10:15-10:45 : Break & snack
10:45-11:25 : P.E. (we have P.E. daily)
11:25-11:55 : Art/Computer Skills
11:55-12:25 : Science
12:25-1:15 : Break & lunch
1:15-1:55 : History/Geography

Somedays, after school, we will do a music class (just for fun), or even take a drive around the town & play fun games.

Thanks
by: Ora

I enjoyed your sharing. I have trouble trying to do too many subjects. I keep weeding this one and that one. I'm trying to learn to switch around with history one day geography the next ext. I like looking at other peoples schedules to judge about where we should be at. And I would not want to work for 5 hrs without a break and besides a business would not do employees that way why should we do our children that way?

nothing wrong with breaks
by: Anonymous

It is not uncommon to have two small breaks scheduled through a homeschool day. Public school kids also get these breaks in the form of lunch, recess, snack, movie fridays, holiday parties etc.
Not to mention, adults don't work a straight 8 hour day without 2 breaks and a lunch period.
It makes for better concentration to refuel and take a break. Most homeschoolers fit all their subject in just fine doing that.
