Homeschool planning

I thought you might be interested in seeing how I’ve got our mornings planned for fall homeschooling. The green blocks indicate subjects that I’m directly teaching. At lunch time I am planning to read a book to the kids, a bit each day. I think we’ll start with The Trumpeter of Krakow. The peach and purple colors are computer time, and tell the kids which computer they’ll be using for that particular assignment.  You should be able to click on the picture to enlarge it.
I’ve been making schedules similar to this for years, and find them to be a real help with organizing our school days. The schedule isn’t rigid– I don’t come unglued if breakfast happens 15 minutes late or if we only spend 10 minutes on history.  But it does provide a backbone for our day, and a place to jump back in if we get off track.

Since I know people are going to ask, here’s some of the curriculum we’re using.

  • Math:  Saxon(16 yo), Teaching Textbooks (most of the kids), AlpahOmega/Horizon (5yo)
  • Spanish: Rosetta Stone
  • Typing: Typing Tutor
  • Grammar:  Grammar Girl,  Simply Grammar, Daily Guided Teaching and Review
  • Science:  Apologia Chemistry, Apologia Botany
  • Phonics: ABeka
