Our Homeschool Schedule

I am a pretty flexible person, but we do try to stay in a routine. We do "school" 4 days a week Mon-Thurs and take Fridays off for errands and playtime at the park. If we have something important to do during a "school " day we may take either the morning or afternoon off to take care of it and try to fit in our work when we can. If we have a fieldtrip or co-op planned we take the whole day off of school.
Our schedule is something like this:
7:00-8:00 breakfast
8:00-9:30 clean-up, morning chores, dressed and ready for the day
9:30-11:00 Bible, Art (for everyone) Science, History, and Chapter Book read-aloud with Nick, Chelsea works independently
11-11:30 Lunch
11:30-12:30 recess, constructive free time
12:30-2:00 Naptime for little ones. I work with Alex on phonics/reading, Math, Science . Nick works independently on Math, Spelling Language Arts, Reading, and Handwriting. Chelsea completes her individual work and I read aloud to her and go over anything she has questions on.
2:00-3:30 TV/video game time if work is complete (30 minutes per person)
3:30-5:00 outside time (hopefully or playroom if weather is bad)
5:00-8:00 supper, evening chores, baths, bedtime stories, bed for all children but Chelsea who reads quietly in her room until 9:3o
