2012 Metzger Homeschool Schedule - Year-round with Multiple Grade Levels



I'm really enjoying our school schedule this year! Since we school year-round, taking a few breaks during the year and a larger break between Thanksgiving and New Years, our grade levels are "in between" for some of the children. They all go at their own pace and complete their school years at different times during the year. Below is how we have worked it all out! Hope it sparks some imagination in your own home school!

Monday - Thursday: "Preschool" with his big sister so that he can learn how to count, address, phone number, birthday, days of week, months of year, etc. Workbook from Wal-Mart.

Eva (11 months...play, play, eat, nap, play) 2012

*FFHA is Fun and Fitness Homeschool Athletics (mainly P.E. and pick-up sports games)

*4H for our children includes: Veterinary Science, sewing, Robotics, Wilderness, Animal Sciences, (and in the past - Rabbits, Pre-Flight, Dogs)

*MOH is Mystery of History On the day we do that, we do 3 lessons plus work on our timeline!

*Science reading is nature, animal and Creation sciences that we read aloud. Experiments are also done at that time. Again, we will do two or three lessons at a time.

*Geography Video/Presentation is when one of our children chooses a country in a continent I choose. They find a YouTube video (with me by their side to "screen" them) or a Netflix video. They also do a presentation on that country and everyone learns to locate that country on the globe.

*Games are all educational in nature (money counting, math, geography, etc.)

*Community Service projects are like this and this and more in that section!

*Doubling Up! Our children double up on certain subjects on different days so that we can devote Fridays to more fun activities and to community outreach. Since we school year-round, some subjects are only done 4 days per week.

This plan is not set in stone and will probably be tweaked as the year goes forward! Ahhhh...the beauties of homeschooling!

Wow, you are super organized!! I have to admit, that's not my area of expertise. I get better each year, but it's a struggle.

I had never heard of silly starters, vocabulary cartoons, or the Daily Spark. They look fun!
