Every homeschooling family has a different schedule. Mamas have to find out what works best for their families and themselves. Some kids are early risers, while others are night owls.
Today, I am going to share our typical schedule. This is the schedule we try to follow but as most people know life doesn't always go as we have planned.
7:00 a.m. ~ Wake Up...there are days we sleep to 8!
7:10- 7:30 a.m. ~ Feed dog & cats, Let out chickens
7:30-8:30 a.m. ~ Eat Breakfast
8:30-9:00 a.m. ~ Get dressed, Clean up & do morning chores
* If we wake up late or have errands, morning chores are added to our afternoon chores.
9:00 a.m. ~ Prayer
9:15 a.m. ~ School
12:00 a.m. ~ The Angelus
12:30-1:30 p.m. ~ School
1:30-3:30 p.m. ~ Free Time
3:30-4:30 p.m. ~ Afternoon chores
4:30-5:00 p.m. ~ Free Time
5:00 p.m. ~ Prepare dinner
5:30/6:00 p.m. ~ Dinner....time varies according to when dad gets home.
9:30 p.m. ~ Bedtime...the kids read for a half hour to an hour at bedtime.
As you can see we are not early risers. We prefer to stay up and sleep in. The times listed are just estimates. I am not a rigid drill instructor. Chores can be done sooner or may take a little longer depending on what they are doing. I do like to start school at 9:00 a.m. with prayer first, but we have started as late as 10.
We have a few breaks during the school time. They kids get a snack break and we have to stop and take the dog out a few times.
On days we have errands to do, we get up, get ready, and head out. I like to get out and get everything done. On days like that school usually starts after lunch around 1:00 p.m.
So there you have it! Our simple daily schedule.
How days your day go?
