Following is our schedule that we will be using over the next week. Our lives are so hectic that I have to have built in flexibility in the schedule. I have a basic schedule, but can easily rearrange subjects throughout the day/week. I create a weekly list that I can check off at the end of each day to make sure I’m getting everything in for that week. I follow Spell to Write and Read for phonics, MEP for math, Your Story Hour for Bible, and AO for everything else. I have a host of other sites I frequent to enhance all of the basics and I will include them in the post as necessary.
