Oh, Spring! How I wish we had more time to stop and smell your beautiful flowers. Even as a laid-back homeschooling family we are super busy in the spring. Our spring homeschool schedule is pretty minimalist. Since we homeschool year around, though, I don’t worry too much about it.
So, let’s get into it! Here’s our spring homeschool schedule.
Our Spring Homeschool Schedule
This spring was a little different for us as far as extracurriculars were concerned. My oldest was doing a different travel soccer program that was intensely time-consuming, with practices each week 1 hour and 2.5 hours from home, plus travel nearly every weekend. He decided to leave the program about a month ago and focus on his job as a rec soccer referee, his piano, and his creative writing.
My youngest added power trampolining as an extracurricular this spring in addition to his travel soccer team.
Between their activities and my essential oils business taking off, we’ve been busy, busy, busy.
I decided to add Time 4 Learning back into our homeschool routine to make sure we’re covering all the bases. I’m so happy I did! Taking some time away from teaching Language Arts and Math and letting Time 4 Learning cover those subjects for me has been such a blessing. The boys like it better, as well, which is the most important thing.
So, here’s what our spring homeschool schedule ended up looking like:
Monday & Wednesday
8:30 AM – My middle son (13) does Math on Time 4 Learning
9:00 AM – Everyone watches Crash Course together. We cover two courses at a time. This spring we’ve done Biology, Anatomy & Physiology, Economics, and Chemistry.
9:30 AM – I do piano with everyone individually. Those who aren’t at the piano usually grab breakfast during this time. I’ve discovered that my boys don’t like eating breakfast first thing in the morning so I stopped pushing it.
10:15 AM – We listen to Harry Potter on Audible. We’re starting book 3 next week! This has been the highlight of our homeschool this spring.
10:45 AM – My youngest son (11) does Math on Time 4 Learning.
11:15 AM – My oldest son (15) does Math on Time 4 Learning.
Tuesday & Thursday
Everything is the same except the boys do Language Arts on Time 4 Learning.
My oldest does extra piano and creative writing a few days per week, as well.
That’s it! We’re trying to keep things simple since we’re busy elsewhere this spring.
