Here is the schedule that has been working for us since January. I had to switch things up a bit. I felt the need for Sweetheart (11 yo, 5th grade) to work independently for a bit of her day. It's time to move her on to that. She would never choose it. She would happily sit right under my armpit and do her work through 12th grade, I believe.
She really loved it at first and now she begs to stay in the room with us. Only that doesn't work because she gets distracted and I have to interrupt Little Bit's reading lessons too much. The girl has to learn to read. Splitting up for a bit is important. Also, it is teaching her to be organized and neat on her own. And she has to keep her desk cleaned off in her room. Win-win-win.
So here goes. We try to start by 9:00. Except when we don't.
Sweetheart: (at her desk in her room) Daily Bible reading, Journal, Grammar or Map work, Handwriting, Math Practice.
While Little Bit and I work on Reading/Spelling/Handwriting. We usually only get 2 of those done.
Then, Sweetheart and I do math and Little Bit works on the computer. I lost all their bookmarks with our old computer so I need to re-do those.
Play break!!! (That's why I'm blogging right now!)
