We’ve gotten more relaxed in our schedule with moving and settling in Germany but still having no Internet.
I’m sure this schedule will change more after I don’t have to leave the house for Wi-Fi and can adjust to a healthier rhythm at home.
Trying to explain to Liz that high school level work requires more time and effort than the level the girls are doing. I know it’s hard and it’s often unpleasant. We need to work on balance and time management.
Homeschool High School Schedule
I wake and prepare breakfast, we all help clean up, we often get dressed
Read-aloud time with Bible, literature, history, science, Life of Fred math
- Liz goes off to do her own thing
- supervised lessons and seat work for Tori, Kate – math, reading, science and history notebooking
- Alex – All About Reading Level 2, math printables and manipulatives at his desk or on the floor
Lunchtime (usually leftovers or something quick…sometimes with read alouds or a quick educational video), clean up
Tori and Kate finish up their work or do arts and crafts or science experiments or history crafts. Alex plays. Liz continues her work.
Outside play if the weather’s nice or indoor quiet time with games or fun reading or arts and crafts. This is when I get work done.
Mondays, Liz has Civil Air Patrol. Tuesdays, beginning this week, Tori will have gymnastics and Alex will have soccer practice. Of course, Kate has soccer practice on Wednesdays and games on Saturdays!
Dinner is usually at 6 and bedtime has been running as late as 9 since the sun is still well up.
