Homeschooling Schedules

Viewing sample homeschooling schedules is a great way to come up with ideas for your own. The following video contains step by step instructions for creating a homeschool schedule. Below that is a summary of our routine, along with a collection of routines that were submitted by other homeschoolers.

Our Homeschool Schedule

Our home school routine revolves around 3 blocks of time - morning, afternoon and evening.

Morning:
We begin with breakfast, followed by morning chores (getting dressed, brushing teeth, making beds and starting laundry) and the 3 R's (reading, writing and arithmetic). These are the most essential tasks in our day, so we take care of them in the morning in order to account for any interruptions.

Afternoon:
After school, we have free time until lunch, and then we begin the 2nd segment of our day. Afternoons consist of lunch, reading aloud, and an hour or two of quiet time, during which my younger children nap and my oldest finishes any work he didn't complete that morning.

After quiet time, we have a snack, practice memory work, fold laundry and do our chore for the day.

Evening:
Next, we straighten up the playroom and family room, and begin our evening routine - dinner prep, dinner, clean up and family time. After bath and story time at around 8:30 or 9:00, the children go to bed and my husband and I have the rest of the evening to ourselves.

Here's a more structured, detailed, timed version of our daily schedule.

Planning Forms:

Here are some planning forms you can use to create your own schedule. You can edit these forms on your computer or print them and fill them out by hand.
