I am frequently asked about how we schedule our homeschool week, how we organize to make sure we get all the things done. I’m going to take the next few posts to break this down, beginning today with examples of our weekly paper schedules. In our house we call these schedules: “charts.”
I apologize for the poor images – they are screen shots taken as I finished up the schedules in preparations for morning printing! I will try to give you clearer images later on.
In real life these schedules are not as intimidating as they look, and as we go through them over the next few days, I will explain why.
My paper charts are built off of the weekly book schedules at the AmblesideOnline website. I follow Ambleside in most things, but do deviate here and there for conviction, pleasure and practicality’s sake. 😉 (I love Ambleside. I love it more and more as the years go by.)
So here are the screenshots.
