We are entering our third week of school, so I can share with you what has been going on for the last few weeks.
Many of our lessons we do as a family because we are using MFW Adventures this year. Love it!
6:30am – I am supposed to rise with a smile, get some coffee and into God’s Word (gotta’ work on this a little better this week).
Here’s what we use for our chore system.
8:00am – Daddy leaves - so we head down to the schoolroom
8:15am – Morning board, Bible reading and memory verses. The girls LOVE morning board. It is so fun for them and they do not even know how much they are learning: calendar, Bible verses, books of the Bible, coins, colors, number words, tally marks, the weather, copy work, and much more! Check out our schoolroom and morning board here.
8:45am – The girls work on Explode the Code, All About Spelling, MUS, CLE Language arts, CLE Learning to Read, and LLATL. I usually give my 5 year old another break in this time frame while I work with my 7 year old. I use workboxes and grid cards to keep the girls and I flowing through our lessons. Check them out here.
10:00am – 30 minute break with snack. I get a mental break now. The girls jump around on the trampoline, get the mail, swing, and have a snack. I get to set up for our science experiment.
10:30am – We begin MFW Adventures history and Geography. We are studying Early American History and the 50 states this year. Check out our first week here.
11:10-11:40am – Science FUN! And I mean LOTS OF FUN! They always want to do more. Nature walks, insect hunts, balloons, water, flowers and more!
Lunch at noon. I try to pack our lunch ahead of time so we can just grab it from the frig. There is not set-up or clean-up time. It’s great if I plan ahead! I pack our lunches in the Easy Lunch Boxes!
Play time! Play time and more time to play… much of the day… with some chores!
1:00 – Complete lessons from the morning if necessary (usually just my older child)
3:30 – Practice piano
4:00 – Read to mom as I cook dinner (most days that is)
