MEVmom Posted August 24, 2012 Share Posted August 24, 2012 The "what time do you finish" thread has me stressed a little. It seems a lot are starting at 9ish and done by lunch. Not happening here. We're starting on Monday, but my schedule has us plugging away from 9-3:30 with off 7 on breaks. My kids will be in K and 1st this year. 8:00 breakfast & family devotions 9:00 walk with everyone 9:30-10:30 I attempt to teach my K and 1st grade students two different levels of saxon math. I'm not sure this will work out. My plan is to teach DS (1st) for 15 min then have him work independently while I teach DD (K) and help her with her work. 10:30 Bible & memory time- AWANA, catechism, character training 11:00 Handwriting & math worksheet side B (saxon) for DS, Handwriting & phonics (15 min) for DD. 11:30 kids go outside while I make lunch 12:00 eat & cleanup 12:30 grammar & spelling (15 min each) for DS. Math worksheet side B for DD. 1:00 History (M/W) or Science (T/Th)- this is mainly for DS but DD will listen in 2:00 Rest time. DS will use 30 min here to do assigned reading (literature) 3:00 DS will get up to do narration from his assigned reading or oral reading practice 3:30 formal school is over, daily chores, video time, dinner prep etc after this It feels very squeezed. This is my first year to have two students. I also have a 2.5 yr old. Am I trying to do too much? The math block is a big unknown because sometimes my DS works fast and sometimes he drags it out. With my DD, I expect to have to be really involved because she's not as quick to catch on as DS. I'm pretty much involved with everything except when they are working independently on math worksheet, handwriting pages, and when DS does his assigned reading. I may have to lose the family walk at 9 if things are too rushed in the mornings. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
