BibleBeltCatholicMom Posted June 29, 2012 Share Posted June 29, 2012 I searched the boards and it doesn't really seem that anyone does block scheduling. My 13 yr old has asked for it (though she didn't know what it was called) and I would consider it. We'd do Math, Latin, German, LA (writing, vocab, and lit), Greek if we add it, instrument practice, and confirmation prep everyday. Swim team several x/wk. We'd do History, Science, Grammar, Logic, Art/Music Appreciation in month-long blocks completing half the wk Aug - Dec and the other half Feb -May (eg: Science chapters 1-16 in August, Logic chapters 1 - 16 in Sept, et c. then Science again chapters 17-32 in Feb, Logic 17-32 in March, and so on). Wow . . . I'm just not sure that sounds do-able. This is by no means set in stone. It's something I'm willing to consider. She said that she'd like to start a subject and work it all the way through and then go on to the next, repeat. I feel strongly that some subjects must be done daily (math, latin, et c). She agrees with that. I also feel that completing half in the first semester and half in the second semester would be better. Still, I can see why this might not be a good idea. I'd like to hear from anyone who has tried it! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
