How do I create a homeschool schedule?
As a homeschool mom, one of the questions I get asked most often is “How do you create a homeschool schedule?” The answer is actually pretty easy – and it doesn’t have to be complicated or rigid to be effective. Here are a few tips for creating a homeschool schedule that will help your homeschool year run smoothly.
First, start by looking at your homeschool goals. What do you hope to accomplish this year? What subjects do you need to cover? Once you know what you want to achieve, you can start planning out your homeschool day.
Take a math book, how many lessons does it have, how many can you accomplish each day, likely one, then you can plan out how many weeks it should take you to get it done.
Once you’ve blocked out the weeks you won’t be doing school for the year, you can figure out how long it will take you to get your math book completed.
For our history, we use Story of the World, it has 30+ chapters or so but we also like to explore other topics so there is room to do one chapter a week and follow rabbit trails if we’d like to.
Of course, there will be days (and sometimes even weeks) when things don’t go according to plan. That’s okay! Just roll with the punches and adjust your schedule as needed. The important thing is to find what works for you and your family.
With a little trial and error, you’ll soon find a homeschool schedule that helps everyone stay on track – and makes homeschooling fun!
