Weekly Schedule

Here is our tentative schedule - it may be tweaked a bit, as we head into the year and see how things fit. Please note that math is done each morning from 9:00 - 9:45 except for Wednesdays. On Wednesdays, we will do some science work - sometimes related to the monthly theme, sometimes not. Also, there is a Read/Write time each day. We use this time for spelling, writing, "special readers" (more on this later), and handwriting. Later in the day we carve out time for quiet reading, and I take this time to listen to children read to me, one-on-one.

I reserve the right to change the schedule to include outdoor walks, improptu dance parties, or excursions to the park if the children seem to need it!
We will continue to have P.E., Art, and Music two times a week, French three times a week, and Latin once a week. I believe this is a wonderful, child-centered, and well-rounded academic schedule:
