This is our summer schedule:
We get through each color everyday.
Everyone is in a different place during each color time, with group recess and snack between each color.
This gives Nathan and me one on one time each day with each child, while making sure everyone gets done all they need to finish.
It also keeps them busy with homeschool all summer, without only drowning in lessons.
Reading aloud and speech is done with a parent, and everyone has different assignments so requires some prep work the night before or early in the morning before they are up.
The computer time is for math and reading fluency programs we use, as well as typing lessons.
Outside time is play time by themselves in the backyard, because there are so many of them they also need to learn to play alone and feel safe and content by themselves.
Practice and play time is violin and piano for all of them.
PACEs are the workbooks we use in our homeschool curriculum. They do these completely independently, and we only check them for them.
Makeup work is anything missed because of appointments, or pace corrections, and then they have free time to color or paint or do play dough, but something creative.
(Jessica is my niece that often comes during the summer.)
We have done this for three years, and it’s what works best for us!
