So Are Your Lessons As Messy As Your Study?

In a word, no.

I may be a disorganized, I-know-it's-here-somewhere kind of girl, but I am committed to providing a high-caliber education for my children. Such a goal can't be left to chance. So I spend Sunday afternoons planning for the upcoming week.

And since I've figured out Scribd, I thought I'd post a copy of this week's schedule:

Weekly Schedule

I check off each item as it's finished. For some subjects, the children work individually, hence the initials next to the assignment. That way, I can check off as each student completes her work. The gray-shaded subjects are ones that typically require my guidance. Piano is listed in this section because one child practices while I'm working individually with the other.

Next come our daily readings. The only book we read each day is Story of the World, Volume 4. We read from Explore the Holy Land three times per week; all other selections are scheduled once per week.

Our schedule is not a strict timetable. Sometimes we read one or two selections first thing; other times we read before bedtime. It really depends on what else is happening on any given day. And if we get "behind," I move an assignment to Friday -- our catch-up day -- or the next week's schedule.

That's how we stay on top of things!


  1. That's great! I work the same way, I have a schedule where I tick off what we are to cover for the week, yet I'm flexible when I need to be. I need structure to keep me accountable, it's good. :)

  2. I use Homeschool Tracker and print out assignment sheets at the beginning of each week for our kids. It is so nice to be able to check things off and have that sort of visual progress. Thanks for linking up with us over at NOBH!


I love reading comments! And I appreciate the time you take to leave them. Thanks!
