How do you keep track of your daily homeschool schedule with your kids? Something that has worked very well in our homeschool is to have a daily schedule that is very consistent. What I have always done in the past is written out the daily and weekly subjects on a dry erase board where everyone can see it. Then, they would look at the board as the day went on to see what they have to do. This has been great, but I needed to change it a bit. You can see my post about how I used to do it.
This school year, I wanted them each to have their own individual schedule. This way I can personalize it more and they can keep track of things on their own. I made a basic printable homeschool schedule for you guys to use as well. I created one with a 4-day schedule and one with a 5-day schedule. We only do school at home 4-days each week. Friday we have a homeschool co-op that we meet with all day.
I am using this printable homeschool schedule as a checklist for my kids. I printed them on two different colors of paper and laminated them. Then I taped them onto a clipboard with packing tape. They will not get lost, and can be marked on with a dry erase marker if they want to check things off as the day goes on. I can also easily edit them and replace them as needed.
My kids do not have to do things in a specific order. They just have to complete their list. They like having the freedom to choose the order each day.
This is a very basic schedule with only the subjects covered. You can make a much more personalized one for your individual kids with the specific books they are reading. Some kids need that, others do not. I also include blank templates for you to write in the subjects and materials you are using that are specific to your own homeschool.
