My sweet PreSchool Boy
My big Kindergarten Girl
My big THIRD GRADER!!!!
I went into this year very nervous about how on earth to schedule our time! I knew that each would need one on one time and I just wasn't sure how that would work. I knew that I needed to figure Ck into the equasion too and I had no idea what that would look like. I also knew that I wanted to keep the main things the main things. I wanted to make sure circle time had a big time box and that chores and habit time had a big time box. Then there was actual "school" time and read aloud time and eat time and rest time. Sigh. How on earth would it work out?
I started with a list (which is how EVERYTHING starts w/ me! ;) of all the things I needed to squeeze into my days. I then broke things down into time boxes. Time boxes are chunks of time for specific activities. It worked like a charm!!! I still have a few kinks to work out, but I think we're off to a pretty good start.
We are only doing school 4 days a week. That's why we start a little early and go a little late. I need the flexibility. Life happenes and for me knowing that if I need a tuesday off I can. I like to save it for Friday, but that's only happened twice so far!!! HA!
I'm so thankful to be able to homeschool. I think it is such an important thing for our family! I hope this will be a wonderful year! :)
