Our Weekly Routine

Once our yearly schedule has been penciled in, it’s time to break down our weekly school routine. Are we studying all subjects every day of the week? Are there certain days which are more conducive to field trips or art projects? Organizing our week, helps me see where we have time and ensures all areas of study are being covered.

Monday
Bible, Language Arts, Arithmetic, History/Geography, Science, PE
Electives (Spanish, Music, Computer Technologies, Art, Home Economics)

Tuesday
Bible, Language Arts, Arithmetic, History/Geography, Science, PE
Electives (Spanish, Music, Computer Technologies, Art, Home Economics)

Wednesday
Bible, Language Arts, Arithmetic, History/Geography, Science, PE
Electives (Spanish, Music, Computer Technologies, Art, Home Economics)

Thursday
Bible, Language Arts, Arithmetic, History/Geography, Science, PE
Electives (Spanish, Music, Computer Technologies, Art, Home Economics)

Friday
Bible, Spelling Test, Reading Comprehension Quiz
Library
Group Activity with PSP, Field Trip, or Park Day

Our routine functions similar to that of a traditional school, with one noticeable difference. We do not have a full day of school on Friday. This is done on purpose. Fridays are reserved for test taking – yes, we test – and for group activities. This affords us the opportunity to meet with friends, explore the great outdoors, or hop in the car for a field trip. It also means we get to spend more time at the library, our home away from home.

Every year we pray about our routine. Thus far, this routine has worked and we love it!

🔔Time to Chime In: Do you have a weekly routine? We’d love to hear about it.
