A Peek Into Our School Day

As we come to the end of the Virtual Curriculum Fair, I thought it would be fun to share what a school day looks like for us.  I love looking into other homeschoolers days so I hope you will enjoy ours!

Pictures were taken through out the week with a few older ones of the games.

8:30 - School begins with prayer and MFW Bible time. 

Here is our weekly bible verse - printable available at Mama Jenn.

8:45 - We go over our Classcial Conversations memory work usually by playing different games.

9:15 - We also go over whatever country/continent we are studying in geography and play MFW Geography game sometimes.

9:30 - History on Monday and Friday, Science on Wednesday and Thursday.

10:00 - We move on to independent work.  I work with Sarah first on Math, reading, grammar, and writing.  The boys have their checklists and follow those until I finish with Sarah.  I will then give her some independent work to do and work with them on anything they need help on.  My ultimate goal is for the kids do complete their work independently.

12:15 or solunch prep, eating, and clean up

1:15 or so- read aloud time - currently we are still reading Johnny Tremain.  We are s-l-o-w readers!

2:00 - finish any school work left undone including piano practice and wii fit!

Our day is typically done by 2:00 and then we do our afternoon chores.  Of course, you know that is a great day, right?  Not all days go so smoothly but we keep pressing on!


  1. Looks great! Thank you for sharing your "day" with the Virtual Curriculum Fair. ;0)

  2. oops--disregard my comment about your having only boys like me! I see you do have one cute little girl! I love that ya'll are finished by 2....of course, I have 2 babies so I bet I won't be that fortunate....


Thanks for stopping by - let me know that you did!
