joyfulhomeschooler Posted September 9, 2012 Share Posted September 9, 2012 Posting this here because I am not getting any response over at the HOD board. I am really nervous about trying to school with a new baby in the same year that we switched curriculum. We are new to HOD this year. So I was hoping to get some feedback on my rough schedule. We are going to be doing Bigger with a 9 and 7yr old. I realize I may have to change this many times to get it right, but is there anything right off that anyone see's that sends up a red flag. Like I said we've never used HOD before so I am unsure of how long or how involved each box will be. 7am Nurse baby while two big kids get morn jobs done 9yr old reads extensions, 7yr old does cursive and explode the code while I finish with the little ones and then start breakfast 8:30 Breakfast and Poetry reading (baby starts nap at beginning of bkfst) Poetry copywork after done with breakfast while I get myself ready for the day 9am Music & Bible Rotating Box English (9yr old R&S, 7yr old FLL after I present R&S lesson to 9yr old) Spelling & Dictation 9yr old DITHOR 7yr old Reading with me Science (baby nursing some time around here 10:30-11 usually) Math (after I explain the topics or go over anything new I put baby down for nap and then make lunch) 12:00 Lunch and History reading Toddler down for nap after lunch History activity on that day 12:30-2:00 Quiet time for older two and hopefully the younger two are still napping so I can have some quiet time too. Now I know this is ideal and that with a new baby you can never count on exactly when they will nap or wake or eat or do anything for that matter... but this is usually what time he sleeps and eats. So what do you all think? I am all ears, like I said I am very nervous about this year and how it's going to work. This baby came as a total surprise and I never thought I would have four kids. God has his own plans and they outweigh mine apparently He obviously thought I could handle it. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
