Year ‘Round Homeschooling

August 17, 2016

 

 

We do, what you would call, “Year ‘Round Homeschooling”. 

 

What is that exactly?

 

Well, it’s different for every family. That’s one of the joys of homeschooling, right? The flexibility to make it work for your family. This year our schedule will look a little different from other years.

 

For our family, year ‘round homeschooling means that we school throughout the year. Now, that doesn’t mean that we don’t take any breaks. That would be ridiculous and tedious. No, we just take breaks throughout the year, instead of such a large chunk in the summer. 

 

Up until now, my husband has had Mondays off from work. So we had a 4 day school week so that we could have a family day (which is so important!). We took a few weeks off, here and there, through the year because of this 4 day school week.  This year, however, he will have the weekends off, so we will go to a 5 day school week. This will adjust how we take our weeks off.

 

Here’s what our year looks like (somewhat):

 

June - August:

This time is usually review and a less structured time of learning. We like to keep it flexible so that we can have play dates with public school friends and enjoy the summer things like public library reading program activities, summer movies, and swimming. We will do school most weekdays.

 

September - November:

School time will be structured. We will have 5 days of school a week and will be on a more focused schedule. We will take 1-2 weeks off of schooling to regroup as a family.

 

December:

School is geared around Christmas and Christmas activities. We learn more about the Christmas story and participate in fun activities like baking Christmas cookies, decorating the tree, and family outings.

 

January - April:

School time will be structured. We will have 5 days of school a week and will be on a more focused schedule. We will take 1-2 weeks off of schooling to regroup as a family.

 

May: OFF

 

 

Remember to make your homeschool schedule fit for your family.

 

Some families need to follow the public school schedule because they have some members that are at the public school. Some families need to take time off for a large hunting season or family vacation. 

 

Whatever your schedule is, just make sure that schooling is a priority, but that it doesn’t rule your life.
