Are you trying to keep your head above water while homeschooling? I’ve created this flexible schedule for you! I call it my Covid 19 Homeschool Schedule. Download it for free!
So, Covid. Quarantine life. It’s nuts am I right? We feel bad even complaining when we see all the death and sickness out there. Not to mention, the financial strain so many of us are under. Top it with balancing work with kids… ALL DAY LONG. I created this covid 19 homeschool schedule to give me and my kids at least some sense of routine.
Now, we all know that it’s not exactly realistic to expect the same routine that the kids get in school. I have looked at literally dozens of sample homeschool schedules ever since covid 19 brought my kids home for good. I have also experimented with different said schedules and have basically decided I just need.a whole lot of flexibility.
If you follow me on Pinterest you’ll see that I love collecting fun ideas for littles. When we’re home I want to make the most of our time together and keep them engaged. But I’ve realized I am a pretty spontaneous person, and need a “plan” but also a lot of flexibility. That’s what I’m hoping these printables provide.
A successful homeschool day requires some kind of a plan but also lots of flexibility and grace.
Rather than break our day up into time slots I’ve instead listed our action items in the order I hope to do them. Some days I aim to get certain things done before lunch, and finish the easier tasks after lunch. Other days I scratch off certain agenda items completely. For example, when the kids have a zoom with their class while that’s helpful- it also stretches out our day. So, on the zoom mornings I am planning to move one of the suggested activities from their school to a day that has a lighter morning.
Here’s an example of our Covid 19 homeschool schedule.
I was getting so many different resources, links and ideas from lots of different places. Like their school, friends, homeschool friends, online etc etc. It was completely and utterly overwhelming. I thought- ok I need to write all this down and keep it in ONE place. So with this design my main goal is just to finish the hardest tasks in the morning, and if there isn’t an assignment from their school I can see examples of ideas in these theme blocks.
Now, I realize your day is probably VERY different. A lot of it depends on the grade your kids are in, and how much direction and assignments their school is giving them. So, for you guys and for myself, because as I said- I also deviate from my own plan a lot: I have created a blank version too! With this other version you can just print it out as much as you want and fill it in with whatever you want!
