The de los Santos School of Home Education

by Ruth de los Santos
(Baltimore)


We're one of those scheduled homeschool families. We go into our classroom at 8am and work through until 1pm. Fridays are test days, so we're usually out of school by 11am or so - it's our short day. Here's what our schedule looks like:

8am - Music/Art/Physical Education/Home Ec (one daily)
9am - Language Arts
10am - History
11am - Math
12pm - Science
We have a 10 minute break in between classes.

I try to make our classroom look as much like a regular classroom, so we have everything an average classroom has - only we have it for one child - not 30 children.

I have one little girl, who's in 1st grade. We LOVE homeschool!
