cjgrubbs Posted January 12, 2012 Share Posted January 12, 2012 I had decided to try to do a loop schedule bc I feel stressed each day trying to get it all done and some things aren't getting done. None of my kids are easy either. This is only our 2nd year to HS. 6th grader is better than last year about workind independently but all 3 of my kids now whine and complain at least once each day (often more than once) about something they have to do school-wise. Together stuff Bible (we read a chapter or two and pray - this is really like a devo time) MOH2 Read Aloud Journal time - to practice handwriting - very laid back. English from the Roots up - we add 2 words each week 6th grader MM 6 - daily IEW writing Easy Grammar Assigned reading 3rd grader RightStart D - daily IEW writing (only 2 days per week) Easy Grammar - daily Assigned Reading - daily All About Spelling 3 - daily Kindergartner Right Start A - 4 times per week - HE LOVES THIS! IEW PAL (reading, phonics, handwriting) - daily (2-3 lessons per week) Reading together fiction and non-fiction; special time for just him! Loop Subjects - 2-3 per day Chemistry (6th and 3rd) Critical thinking (games and puzzles) Science Unit (Penguins for 3rd and K; programming for 6th) Botany (using Apologia with our co-op - we really just read) Spanish Art (Meet the Masters) Electronics (6th and 3rd with Dad at night) Poetry Geography Hobby I am usually exhausted by the time we get to the end of the day. I think it has more to do with my kids attitude and lack of motivation (ie I'm constantly dragging everyone to get back to "school") than that we are doing too much, but I thought I'd see what others feel about this schedule.
