We’re almost half-way through building our dream classical homeschool. I don’t know about you, but our school day is getting full.
We’re free reading for an hour and doing math everyday. Each day includes writing, morning time, and Latin. It’s hard to believe we’re only half-way through and still have subjects to add.
Which is why we’re not adding any subjects this week. We’re giving ourselves time to adapt to our new routine. We’re giving ourselves time to envision our dream classical homeschool.
Your Dream Classical Homeschool
We’ll be adding subjects such as science, history, literature, music, art, spelling, grammar, logic, rhetoric, and modern languages over the next few weeks. Whew, that’s a lot of work to fit into the day.
So how do you want to fit them into your week?
Perhaps you’ll alternate history and science and do the bulk of the work during morning time. Mondays and Wednesdays could be used for history. Tuesdays and Thursdays you could study science. Fridays are the perfect opportunity for art and music studies.
You could spend one week studying science and another week working on history. Some families even study history in the fall and science in the spring! The choice is yours.
Think about how much time you have to homeschool, your children’s activities, and your commitments. Adapt your homeschool schedule to fit your life.
Homeschooling is a lifestyle and doesn’t have to be done Monday – Friday, 9pm – 3am. You can fit discussions into family dinners, listen to history books in the car, and finish math in the evenings.
Consider if you’d prefer to immerse yourself into one subject at a time, or break the day and week into smaller chunks. There’s no right answer.
Remember if your first plan for your classical homeschool doesn’t work, try, try again!
So make a decision, set a schedule, and prepare to start adding the next round of subjects one at a time.
So far we’ve:
- Taken a week off and inspired ourselves
- Started an hour of daily reading
- Picked up math lessons
- Added writing
- Started Morning Time
- Begun Latin or Greek
