|Visual help in planning our homeschool days/weeks|
I got the above idea for planning here. For my case, the blue represents Baby Girl's subject areas, the green represents Bug's subject areas, and the yellow represents Doodles' subject areas. A quick glance lets you know that Doodles' workload is the heaviest this year, as it should be since she's moving into middle school (whew, where did the time go!) Each child will not do every subject area on every school day, plus we have all day co-op on Mondays, so I had to figure out how to get the bulk of our work done on Tues. - Fri., leaving Mondays open for co-op and "catch up" work, if necessary.
I have this schedule for Baby Girl (special needs preschool):
Monday-Homeschool Co-op; Slow and Steady, Get Me Ready (book purchased here)
Wednesday-Baby Sing & Sign; Slow and Steady Get Me Ready
Thursday-Baby Sing & Sign; Montessori activities; iPad activities
Friday-Oak Meadow Preschool; Montessori Activities
I have this schedule for Bug (4th grader):
Monday-Homeschool Co-op (science, literature, and Scripture Adventures); Independent reading
Tuesday-Friday: Further Up and Further In ( this unit study covers Bible, literature, art, music, history, science, geography, cooking, writing and critical thinking); Math
Tuesday, Thursday: Cursive
Wednesday, Friday: Grammar
I have this schedule for Doodles (6th grader):
Monday-Homeschool Co-op (science, literature, geography, and theater); Beautiful Girlhood book with Companion Guide
Tuesday-Friday: Sonlight Core F (previously 5) (this covers Bible, literature, history, geography, research skills, hands-on projects, and language arts; Math
Tuesday, Friday: Grammar
Friday: Projects (Alternating on a weekly basis: Week 1-Cooking Project; Week 2-Current Events; Week 3-"Your Choice" Project; Week 4-Report on a recently studied topic, person, or location)
