A Typical School Day

Well now that we are a little into the school year, I thought I would share my schedule and how we do school.

First we wake up when we want to, usually around 8:30 or 9. We eat, maybe watch some TV, or hang around while I toss in a load of laundry and do dishes or other quick cleaning. Then around 10 or 11 we go up to our school room. The first thing I do is put a movie on in the boys' room for Alta. Usually she doesn't watch it, but sometimes she does, sometimes she play with toys, but mostly she stays in the school room with us.

Then we do our devotions and pray, do the Pledge of Allegiance, and check out the calendar.  Next I get Landon set up with whatever subject he wants to do first, Language and Phonics, Math, or Spelling. While he works through his subjects, I work with Parker on learning whatever he is working on, a letter, number, shape, color, etc. Alta will do some of these things too. Then while he works, I help Landon with anything he needs help on. We also do Scholastic's Weekly Readers on Thursdays. On Wednesdays, Landon also reads a short story and takes a test on it.

When Landon finishes his subjects up, we move onto either Health, Science, or Social Studies. On Mondays, we do Health, on Tuesdays, we do Science, and on Wednesdays, we do Social Studies. On Thursday and Friday we do any extra Science projects or we do art or PE.

After school, we head back downstairs for a late lunch, I work on the house some more and we all have down time. We also watch a Liberty Kids episode or an At the Center episode. In the evening, after baths, we read a Bible story, and Landon reads a chapter or two in the book he is reading, right now he is reading the Magic Tree House series. All in all, school takes anywhere from 2-5 hours a day, with 3 hours being the norm. It all depends on the kids' moods. And that's our school day in a nutshell.
