home4school Posted July 7, 2008 Share Posted July 7, 2008 I am trying to schedule our year - broad overview down to a workable daily schedule. I don't see how y'all teach so many kids so many different things! I would appreciate any input you great schedulers can offer! I had posted something similar a little while back and Rose gave a great schedule, then I realized I didn't have all of our subjects listed! So, here's the line up! BTW, I have two ds, ages 10 and 12, and we try to combine everything except math and spelling. Bible - daily - Bible Study Guide for All Ages - 30 min? Math - daily - Professor B, supplementing with Singapore or some generic workbook. I have to work one on one with them on the computer for Prof. B, hoping the workbook can be done independently. 45 min? Spelling - 4x - Megawords (I am needed sometimes) and Apples Drill done mostly independently Literature/Reading - 4x - Tying into history, using read alouds/alone and coordinating study guides. How long should we spend on this a day? Writing - 2x- IEW Writing Trails in American History and learning to do bios, book reports writing across curriculum. How much time each day? Grammar - 2x- Have Winston and Grammar Key (computer program) History - 3x- Using the free losbonos American History Science - 2x- God's Design. I have the Earth and Universe ones. I wanted to try to do the Machine and Motion one as well, but I think two in one year will be more than we will be able to manage! Latin - 2x- Lively Latin Typing - 1x- some computer program Art - 1x- Discovering Great Artists, then I Can Do All Things. Music- I don't even know what to use for this! Logic - 1x - Mind Benders Vocabulary - 1x - I guess we will just use words from History and Science and I also have EFRU that we only got thru 2 pages last year! :( Computer Applications - 1x- I noticed in the Calvert Schedule how they tie in teaching things like spreadsheets, word processing, etc. with subjects. I think this is a great idea. My two really know nothing about using actual programs like Excel, Word, etc. They also would love to do the Lego Robotics. I will have to save up for that, so maybe by the time I do, we could just replace the time for Computer Applications with that? I really wanted use to enjoy school this year. Everything always seems so much like torture. I would love the be more CMasonish, but this really doesn't seem that way! How do you take a more laid back approach with shorter time periods and ever get all this done? I have tried to attach a copy of what I have so far. I don't know if I did this right, so I hope it works! Please feel free to make any suggestions! It just seems like soooo much! Thanks!
