Sometimes looking for the right schedule to fit your home school is like looking for a needle in a haystack!
Sometimes you just have to gather your resources and come up with your own thing. You know how women are, we like to brainstorm and get ideas from other women.
First: I asked some other Homeschooling Mommies I know how they did things and this is what I found out..
Mommy 1 Sets her priorities and works from a list. She knows that in order to function at their home they must start with breakfast and by taking care of some necessary chores and get moving around the house. Next they have devotion. Mommy 1 is a list maker. So, each night she sets down and makes lists for herself and everyone in her home. This is how they tackle their academics. They start at the top of the list. However, they do not go until the list is finished. She does encourage them to work diligently, but school is over at 3:00pm every day!
Mommy 2 Uses the Workbox System. Which I find to be very productive but tried last year and I found it to be a lot of work on my part. (That's just me though) You can find out more about Workboxes here.
Mommy 3 Is scheduled down to the minute. She has a schedule written out, her times are precise and she doesn't miss a beat. I do admire someone who is that disciplined however I would go crazy!
Second: I got on the Internet and searched some Blogs...
Brandy, over at Half A Hundred Acre Wood has got it going on! I love her planner for each cycle of Classical Conversations but I wish it had the days divided so I could put what each child is doing that day.
I also love Confessions of a Homeschooler's Schedule but it doesn't allow for much flexibility. Although I do like her color-coded layout!
