Along with organizing this week, I have been implementing new routines to help us get prepared for the new homeschool year.
The above page is posted through out our home and in each notebook, to hopefully keep us on track. We are not a set time, kind of a family, we have animals, farm stuff, and other children who tend to interrupt or change our timed schedules, so I tend to do more routines. These are goal times.
I noticed this morning, I left out our Spelling City time on the computer. I will be adding that in.
You may notice there is little free time on this list. However, if my children buckle down and work hard, they will have free time after each thing is done on their list.
I do not really have myself scheduled in here. There are many reason, why I don’t. Mainly, because I am moving around so much and taking care of things as they happen. My routines must be more flexible, as I am often needed to make phone calls, emails, and other such items for our family. I also want to keep myself available for my children’s needs with out some schedule looking me in the face telling me to be here or there, take care of this or that.
Several times a year, I have to change our routines to meet our family’s needs. This leads to our new chore board, which I have just finished putting together. I will be posting about it, next week.
How do you schedule your school days? Are you a routine person or a timed schedule person?
