Summer School Schedule

I’ve been playing around with our schedule over the last several days, and I think I finally have our summer the way I want it. So, here’s what we are up to and how we are fitting it in (while still managing to have lots of play time and pool time).

First, I’m planning on a four day school week, saving the fifth day for field trips and bigger projects. Then, I split up our math and phonics similar to a block schedule. In other words, we don’t do both everyday but rather do each every other day. Day 1: Math; Day 2: LA; Day 3: Math; Day 4: LA. This way, we get two lessons of each every week—good enough to maintain what we’ve learned, not so much that we don’t get a summer.

Now, for all of the fun I have planned!

Science/Nature Study

Geography (continuing with North and South America)

Art and Art Appreciation: Monet (and lots of drawing)

Music Appreciation: Bach (it’s a long story for another post)

Again, I wanted enough to cover the topic and give us an activity for each day without robbing us of the summer-time memories. So, we will do one of these subjects each day: four subjects for four days.

Thus, our schedule comes down to this.

Monday: field trip/project day

Tuesday: Math and Nature Study

Wednesday: LA and Music

Thursday: Math and Art

Friday: LA and Geography

Let the good times roll!

Our life is creative chaos, and our homeschool is loud and busy and distracted and challenging and lovely. My name is Tracy, and I homeschool my crew of three kids with ADHD/dyslexia, finding creative ways to use their strengths to teach their weaknesses. As a homeschooled homeschooler, I love customizing curriculum and making adjustments to incorporate fun, hands-on projects for out-of-the-box learners. Stop by to find grace for the messes and mistakes, and knowledge to pick up the pieces and make something special. Let’s grow together!
