How many times a week do you do:

 

 

Science - 1 (Together, though I've been having them read a science book for 20/30 min each day for the past few weeks)

 

History/Social Studies - 2-3

 

Math - 5

 

Phonics/Language Arts - 4-5

 

Geography - 1-2 (mapping with history reading)

 

Spelling - 0 (my girls tested 3-4 levels above their grade at the beginning of the school year so I didn't see the point in doing it)

 

Critical Thinking/Logic - 0-1

 

Handwriting - 2-3

 

Music/PE - 4-5 (they play the piano and sing all day long, I try to get them moving for 30 minutes each day, and they go to Gym class once per week at the school across the street)

 

Art - 1-2

 

 

 

We obviously don't have the same schedule each week! I think we'd get bored doing the same thing over and over!

My DD is 4.5 years old working mostly at the upper kindergarten/first grade level. Generally, we do our three core subjects daily (handwriting, reading and math) and then rotate a fourth subject. Rarely, I'll add art as a fifth subject, if a couple of other subjects were short and/or light. I add it, just because she likes art and I have a hard time fitting it in. Having said that, there are a lot of art-like projects within our other fourth subject subjects.

 

Science - 2-5 times a week (depends what we're studying)

 

History/Social Studies - 1 time a week

 

Math - 5 times a week

 

Phonics/Language Arts - 5 times a week (we work on a new sight word, review our word wall and also complete a phonics lesson daily)

 

Geography - 0 times a week, unless it fits in with another lesson/subject

 

Spelling - 0 times a week, but there are spelling elements within her sight word and phonics lessons

 

Critical Thinking/Logic - 0 times a week

 

Handwriting - 5 times a week

 

Music/PE - 0, nothing formal at this time...she just plays in her non-school time

 

Art - 2-3 times a month, but a lot of her other curriculum has art-like elements. This is art for the sake of art...activities revolve around the seasons/holidays.

 

She also does a very quick Kumon cutting exercise every Tuesday and Thursday. This will fall off our schedule after she completes the book in a couple of weeks. We also have literature and Bible stories that we fit in wherever we can.

Science child's lead by topic a few times a month until 4th and then every other day or every other week (alternating with history) until 7th when it is every day

 

History/Social Studies every other day or every other week (alternating with science) until 7th when it is every day. This would be at least 60-90 minutes a day when alternating. In the past I have done it daily, but this works better for our family.

 

Math daily. by 5th grade minimally an hour

 

Phonics/Language Arts by 4th grade it's daily and close to an hour, increasing in time each year thereafter.

 

Geography included with history until junior high, then by topic averaging a week every month

 

Spelling daily

 

Critical Thinking/Logic We teach them to think logically from an early age, challenging incorrect thinking and use some socratic techniques. In 5th grade it's 15 minutes every few months with a book (e.g., Fallacy Detective) until a formal class in junior high

 

Handwriting four times a week until workbook is completed

 

Music/PE intentionally about once a week

 

Art same as for music

How many times a week do you do:

 

 

Science We are completing science a little differently this year. Instead of working it into our weekly schedule, I have scheduled six weeks during the year that we only work on science. So we have 6 science weeks--each week is 4 days of 6 hours and 1 day of 3 hours. That's 27 hours 6 times which adds up to 162 hours for the year.

 

History/Social Studies 10 hours per week

 

Math6 hours per week

 

Phonics/Language Arts 8 hours per week, but I consider a lot of the history time to be part of our LA as I teach writing through history and science. This also includes lit for us instead of phonics

 

Geography1-2 hours per week

 

SpellingIncluded in LA time

 

Critical Thinking/Logic2 hours per week

 

Handwritingno longer work on handwriting

 

Music/PEPE--4-10 hours per week depending on the season

 

We also have a Shakespeare class on Friday mornings which has about 2-4 hours of work throughout the week.

 

Art 2-3 hours per week

How many times a week do you do:

 

 

Science 2-3 times a week depending how long a PLATO lesson takes...she does a complete PLATO lesson then some workbook pages that correspond.

 

History/Social Studies Twice a week

 

MathDaily...which for us is 4 days a week since we don't "do school" on Fridays.

 

Phonics/Language Arts 7 days a week...4 days of formal language arts and lots of reading on other days.

 

Geography Twice a week.

 

Spelling Don't do formal spelling. Dd is a natural speller. Doing a spelling curriculum was a waste of time with her.

 

Critical Thinking/Logic Haven't added this in formally, yet.

 

Handwriting Don't do formally anymore.

 

Music/PE Music is 7 days a week. No formal PE but riding bikes and playing on trampoline or walking at park happens on all nice days.

 

Art This is the one I have trouble getting to the actual curriculum I have except that I could say her geography curriculum could be called art since she is learning to draw the world. She does do crafts and draws on her own all the time, though.

I'm assuming you mean eled kids, so I'll tell you about mine.

 

Science - (6th grader) class day, 1 hr a week. 2 days of homework- between 1/2 -1 hour each time. They are also watching Chem 101 with big bro, 2 sections a week. They regularly get on NOAA, NASA and Astronomy sites with Dad- probably 45 min -1 hr total a week. Ranger Rick and Science News is read by everyone here- on their own time.

 

History/Social Studies - (6th grader in the class, 3rd grader does the homework with me during the week)class day, 1 hr a week. 2 days of homework- bewteen 1-2 hours a week. We also listen to SOTW and MoH regularly, and we have an on-going read-aloud. It is often historical fiction. National Geographic is read by everyone here on their time.

 

Math - 3 days a week. 1 -1 1/2hour each time.

 

Phonics/Language Arts- L.A. Both have 1 hour class days 1 time a week. 45 min -1 1/2 homework for both. They both memorize poetry but it's been hit or miss since Xmas. Back to 15 min. a week. Everyone but the 8 yo does free writing for several hours a week.

 

Geography-part of World History.

 

Spelling- while we do L.A.

 

Critical Thinking/Logic- 6th grader is reading Fallacy Detective. Not really scheduled.

 

Handwriting- hit or miss.

 

Music/PE - co-op. 45 minute classes 1 day a week 24 weeks a yr. During non-co-op times I count our 1-2 mile walks (when the weather is good), bike rides, regular gardening and working on the house (we are very active).

 

Art - co-op. 45 min class 1 day a week for 24 weeks a yr. I work on drawing skills with them throughout the year (I have a minor in art). They always have sketchbooks, pencils, etc available and they often draw during reading or CD time. We have tons of "How to draw" books around. They all regularly take pictures, create pictures, make videos, some of them do collage journaling, etc.

In K-2, we did:

 

Science

History/Social Studies

Geography

 

Those were done when we had opportunities. We might go to a science museum and then read a bunch of books on it one week, so it would be every day of science. The next week we might visit a fort and so we would do history for a few days, reading books and watching vidoes on the frontier. We did memory work every day, though, and that often involved science, history, or geography.

 

Math

Phonics/Language Arts

Spelling

Handwriting

 

These were done every single day, usually six days a week year-round. Pre-K-2 we did math, handwriting, and phonics. Then from 3rd grade on, we did math, grammar, spelling, and reading.

 

Critical Thinking/Logic

 

I didn't focus on this at all until 4th grade or so. Obviously, it would come up in conversation, but that was it.

 

Music/PE

Art

 

These were 1-2 days a week for lessons and then some every day for practice or free time. Dc did Kindermusik and art museum classes up until K, and then they did homeschool art lessons and piano lessons from 1st grade on.

Science - 2 to 3 fairly short lessons, including nature study

 

History/Social Studies - 3 to 4 times a week

 

Math - 4 days a week

 

Phonics/Language Arts - 4 to 5 days a week

 

Geography - goes with history, maybe once or twice a week

 

Spelling - 4 to 5 days a week

 

Critical Thinking/Logic - not yet, but I am envisioning once or twice a week

 

Handwriting - We do copywork once or twice a week, and I correct handwriting in other parts of our language arts as well.

 

Music/PE - We listen to music almost daily. Ds10 has a piano lesson once a week, and practices daily. As for PE, well, we do something active most days. I try, when the weather is cooperating, to take them to a park for about an hour after they finish their lessons.

 

Art - My kids do art daily. They both draw, paint, etc. a lot. We do a more organized project maybe once a week.
