Good morning everyone. I hope you all are well. Today I was thinking about how many more days my oldest son, Little A, has left of 4th grade. He only has 32 more days to go. This also means I need to get a move on figuring out what I want to cover and what is required we cover for 5th grade. We have only been homeschooling for one year, almost so I am by far no expert on the subject. I do, however, feel as if I myself have learned a lot so far about how best to cover subjects with my son. So as I will be starting to work on getting our fifth grade curriculum ready I thought I would post how we do our schooling as of now and maybe how we may change for next year.
Our Current Home School Schedule
We work on a 4-5 day schedule mostly but that does change depending on other plans such as doctor’s appointments.
On Mondays we try to do a review of what we did the past week.
Tuesday – School/appointments
Wednesday – School
Thursday – School
Friday – School/appointments
Saturday – no school
Sundays – no school
Daily Rotating Schedule-
We have 5 day schedule labeled with letters. This is more for me to keep track of what subjects we are on.
PA History (because we are in PA)
Things We Do Everyday-
Run laps around the house
Read the Bible together
Hopefully all of this makes sense. If not here is an example of one of our day’s schedule. We will do today.
Today was a Monday and a Day A.
We started the day with Little A doing some independent work.
Math review worksheets
Wrote an entry in his journal
Drew a picture in his journal
Observed his Acorn project (they are tiny trees now)
Then we still did some work together (including M).
Reviewed his independent work
Ran 5 laps around the house
Did some chores
Read Chapter 7 in The Story of the World Book (world history)
Did the review for Chapter 7 in The Story of The world Activity Book
Notebooked about Chapter 7
Read from the Bible
Then while his brother napped…
Read for about an hour
I hope that all makes sense. If you have any questions on how we do things feel free to ask.
