  • Our homeschool day ~2015

    After reading several “Homeschool a day in the life” post at Simple Homeschool, I decided to track how long we actually spent on subjects.

    So for those of you who are curious what an at home day looks like around here, here you go.

    6:15am try to pull myself out of bed so I can have quiet time. This is also when I try to get my blog post done and up.

    *My husband usually goes to work before I get up so he is already gone for the day.

    7am the boys get up (this is the time they are allowed up, I do not wake them up unless we have to go somewhere)

    7:30am I made breakfast so I told them to come eat.

    8-9am the boys play(play was traded for my youngest laying down and my oldest sitting on the couch, sometimes they just cannot seem to get along!)


    9am 1st Lesson of RightStart Math



    9:46am 2nd Math Lesson (we are trying to get through two math books this year so we double up when we can)


    10:15am Handwriting Without Tears


    10:23am First Language Lessons & Super Grammar



    10:35am All About Spelling



    10:45am Snack & Break

    breaktimeThey usually opt for playing with legos during break time.

    I try to do any prep work for history and science during their break time.

    11:10am History

    historyWe were wrapping up the study we had been doing for the past 3 weeks so I just read to them a mini biography and we put the figures up on our timeline.

    Sometimes history involves a lot of reading and can take up a huge chunk of our day.

    Or we wait and watch a documentary on the computer while eating lunch.


    11:20am Science

    scienceI wanted to get some more shots of our Hero’s fountain so we did it one more time before wrapping up our study of him.

    Depending on the experiment, science can take up to an hour.

    Especially since I often have no clue what I am doing at first…

    11:30am Done with school!

    We did really good this day and finished before lunch!

    That is my goal every day but sometimes the boys have other ideas.

    No Geography today.

    End of a study so we did not have much to cover today.

    Sometimes the end of a study means we are playing catch up though! It can go either way.

    12:30pm Quiet time & Reading

    They do their school reading usually at quiet time. Right now though my oldest is trying to get through The Lord of the Rings trilogy.

    1:30pm boys are up, chores and free time.

    We have one or two days a week that we do hiking or fieldtrips, on those days I really try to get anything I have to get done before we go.

    I also have them read school books on the way to places and watch any educational dvds I have planned for them in the vehicle.

    I hope this helps someone!

    What does your school day look like?

    Do you enjoy peeking into other peoples lives as much as I do?

    2. I love, love, love the photography, Danielle. Beautiful. The Hero’s fountain looks like a ton of fun. I might have to work that into our science routine. Thanks for sharing your day with us.

    3. Your photography is lovely! What type of camera do you use? I’m so glad I found you at Simple Homeschool. Thank you for sharing 🙂
