Help me find/make a schedule to include loop and daily activities?

Recommended Posts

I'd like to find or make a schedule sheet that has a section for loop items and a section for daily items, including chores.


Has anyone found a similar sheet already made?  Mostly I'd like to use a checklist format, not a table.  I don't want to enter specifics pages and what not, just subject matter.


Kind of like the old AO forms used to be...where you see Shakespeare and such in a chart, then daily activities above it.


Am I making sense?

LA: spelling, grammar, composition

FA:  cd lesson, shakespeare, nature study, art study, character

What you need to do to make this simple is add another FA. The you will have six neat rotations of a week each for FA. Within those six week rotations you will go twice through each week long LA rotation. But I don't know if you really want to spend a week at a time on spelling.


I always plan in terms of weeks. And that's the pattern I saw first.


For that extra FA, how about a week of cooking?

Great ideas!


I am challenged by where to go from here.  Do I just open the books and do the next thing or make a notebook with tabs for each subject and follow the next topic that I've planned out.  I'm still figuring out how to implement the loop.  How do I make a system so I don't forget where I am, what to do?


I think I'm going to read and listen to some info on the loop scheduling because while I can make a list of what I want to do I still don't understand how to implement it.


It's been a while since I've had to make my own schedule.  If it helps I am a true box checker who used an all in one curricula source with a lesson plan  :huh: loops are new to me...

You might check out Plan Your Year by Pam Barnhill on edsnapshots.com. She has downloadable forms that include the loop schedule and also a procedures process and other things you might find helpful. Having the forms made for me has made my life so much easier. I'm a big fan of her program. I've instituted block and loop schedules since reading Plan Your Year.

You could make a checklist for your dailies. And then for your LA and FA you could also have a checklist, but leave blank lines underneath to fill in what was actually done. Something like:


[ ] bible

[ ] math

[ ] lit

[ ] CC

[ ] fine arts



[ ] language arts
