The Rich Family Homeschool Schedule

by Jackie
(Midcoast Maine)

The night before.....If I have learned one thing in homeschooling, our day begins the night before. So, assuming that we have begun our evening family story hour by 8:00, we're in good shape. Easier said than done! We usually have 4 lesson days and one outing day, which includes a piano lesson and another group activity such as science class, a visit with friends, etc.

7:00 Rise and Shine/ Breakfast- my 11 year old is not a morning person, and often isn't hungry, so I eat in front of him while we talk about the plans of the day.

7:30 Bible lesson/devotional

8:00 Math- favorite subject of the day and it stimulates the brain!

9:00 Music- works the brain, fine motor, eye hand coordination. Piano practice, appreciation, history. If we don't do music in the morning it often gets pushed aside. Not quite as messy as art either, which we save for after lunch when there is plenty of time for cleanup

9:30 Foreign Language- Spanish, Latin/Greek, and Sign language, alternately from day to day/week to week.

10:00 Break- a great time to get outside, take a nature walk, ride bikes, or just enjoy the sun and the fresh air. So important for a boy with lots of energy.

10:30 Language Arts/Literature- this includes spelling, grammar, penmanship, creative writing, dictation, reading, journaling. Total Language Plus and Sonlight do a nice job of incorporating Language Arts

11:30 Break- another chance to get outside :)

11:45 Content- a short history or science reading with discussion or other related activity

12:15 Lunch- outside picnic?

1:00-Projects- Art or history project, science experiment, etc.

2:30- Specials- chess clubs, sports, etc.

5:00 dinner/family time

8:00 Story time

9:00 Sweet dreams :)

Homeschool Schedule

Great schedule, I used one similar for the 15 years that I homeschooled my children. You get everything covered when you have a schedule and prepares them for real life. In a job you have a schedule too. Thanks for sharing.
