Our Weekly Homeschool Schedule for 2012 – 2013

weekly homeschool schedule

This is the last week of iHomeschool Network’s Not Back to School Hop, and it culminates with a “Day in the Life” theme.  Since our days our different every single day, I thought I would just share our weekly schedule instead.

For anyone that is stopping by through the hop and isn’t familiar with our family, we have children in 2nd, 6th, and 7th grade.  Here is the low down on what we’re using for curriculum this year.

The General Make Up of the Day

We start each day with religion and then talk about particulars about the day’s work.  We then move to independent work, with me hanging around and helping whenever needed.  Of course, some of their independent work often requires my assistance/instruction (such as grammar and math), while other things are more easily done without help (such as typing and handwriting).  After independent work, we work on group subjects again, such as science, history, art, music, French, and others.

    Jamie…you should look at AHG’s Trailblazer program, which lets your daughter earn the badges, etc., without forming a troop. We ordered the start-up kit to consider starting a troop (we are!!!), and it is an awesome book! Tons of great activities for girls 6-18!

    Thanks for sharing your schedule. We’re unschoolers in Australia and love hearing about other homeschoolers’ lives and meeting them as we travel!

    Hi!

    I have 3 kids that homeschool 2nd-jr/high school that just do not wake up early, they are up at times around 11 or noon. Should I just leave them alone and start their lessons later?
    What do you suggest?
