I thought some of you might be interested in our daily schedule. Nothing is set in stone, of course, and I view a schedule as a guide with room to maneuver! My boys are in 5th grade, 4th grade, and Kindergarten.
- 7 to 9 am – Wake up, eat, fresh air, personal hygiene
- 9 – 10 am – Morning meeting on a walk & then take our daily brain vitamins [I write down a riddle or a problem for each of them to solve. I use this riddle book often as a source for ideas.]
- 10 -10:45 am – Foreign language with Duolingo. I set up three separate classrooms for my three sons so that I could assign them different and individualized work.
- 10:45 – 11:15 am – Lego Challenge
- 11:15 -12:15 – Lunch & Outdoor Time
