MomOfOneFunOne Posted January 30, 2011 Share Posted January 30, 2011 We tend to school 6 days per week. It's not something we ever planned out but to get everything done AND get to visit with friends and participate in activities AND in order to have less full to bursting kinds of days (fewer work and no play days) we have just fallen into a pattern of 6 day school weeks. During our week, we have a good full day on Monday. T and R are busy with online classes in the morning and either fiddle lessons (T) or Writing club ® in the afternoon. She has Catholic girls' club 1st and 3rd Friday mornings and Riding lessons 2nd and 4th Friday afternoons. Sometimes we have friends over in the afternoons, too. With everything we do, we could get our school done in 5 or even 4 days but our days would be packed from early till late. We could give up some things but we like everything we do. So, to have full but not over full to bursting days, we usually end up having school 6 days per week. In fact, today, Saturday, my daughter practiced fiddle, played at a pub, took a Latin vocab quiz, a science test, worked on a history project. Yet, yesterday, a traditional school day, she only did Math hmwk, studied for her Latin and Science tests, and worked on some domestic arts projects. Well, as a matter of fact, we log school 7 days per week. My girl has Scripture study at church with our Deacon on Sundays and I log that for Religion. If we go to the ballet on a Sunday we log that for Fine Arts or if we go hiking or to an activity at the nature center we log that as PE *and* science. I never assign wk for Sunday ever but if we do something, I log it. I think the things that keeps us from being overwhelmed by this is that 1) we don't *always* have school on Saturday and 2) Our days are pleasant; pleasantly full and not so full they're stressful. So that other thread has me wondering . . . anyone else school 6 days/week? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
