This past year has been full of changes. I was also attending college full-time, but recently decided homeschooling is where my focus should be and now we are adjusting to find a way to do things daily, that everyone can benefit while keeping it fun.
We homeschool year round. This seems to be the easiest, less stressful, and most rewarding way. Because of this schedule we are able to take breaks every month. We want the kids to know school and learning is a way of life, and not something you do for only 9 months.
We do 3 weeks on, 1 week off. This gives us time to take field trips or vacations every few weeks. The kids are able to build off what they have learned without needing to go over it again.
With this schedule we have 39 weeks on and 12 weeks off, with 195 days in class at home. Technically, with only 180 days needed, we have some wiggle room for sick days or an unexpected trip.
Our last day (this year) will be June 27th.
Any other year-rounders out there?
