Here is Sarah’s schedule, but we use that word kind of loosely. If I decide to let the girls sleep in a little because they are sick or were just up late the night before, I can adjust any part of this to make the day go smoothly. Routine is in half hour increments unless noted.
Sarah’s Routine (Age 9)
Up at 7:00
Breakfast and Bible In a Year with Mom
Morning routine (Morning Routine: Get dressed,PJs away,Make bed,Brush teeth,Clean bathroom,Brush Hair,Straighten Bedroom,Pet care)
Math (1 hour)
Reading or Math help with Mom
Science or History
Catch up Time/Character
Hands on Together
Bible (1 hour)
Afternoon Routine (Straighten House, put away all books and papers, help with dinner)
Finish Schoolwork or Free
After Dinner Routine
We do not have a night routine. Once our after dinner routine is finished, we all hang around and visit, play, act silly until David goes to bed around 9:00 PM. The we discuss our Bible in a year and character work done throughout the day, with my husband leading discussions.
Now, I realize that is pretty structured. I do fluctuate how I am scheduling our days. Right now, I am going for more structure because I have several projects going and need to make sure I am not neglecting the important duties of motherhood, wife, and home educator and being stricter helps me do that. When life is pretty relaxed, this tight of a schedule would be too much. What are your favorite scheduling tips? What does a typical day at your house look like?
