I just stumbled upon your website via Pinterst and have spent the last hour or so totally engrossed. I am a teacher myself and have to admit…not the biggest fan of the lesson planning. So, I find it quite ironic that I LOVE everything you have on your sight. Too many great ideas, and approaches that I had to stop pinning:) and make a new Pinterest board titled, “Go-To Sites”. I have 4 kiddos and need to organize and come up with a schedule. Do you have some sample kid schedules or know who may have some that I could springboard from? I feel I need some focus for what I want to accomplish with my kids and family -goals, dreams, action plan, getting started. As I am new to your wonderful site, I may have overlooked schedule related info you have somewhere. Thanks for your help.
Oh what a kind comment!!! I’m grinning from ear to ear. When my kids were little I did follow a schedule… it was so much easier for me. It is difficult to give specific suggestions because what works best for each family will vary so much. A couple of tips that really worked for me were
~ Knowing what “lesson plans” I wanted to focus on ahead of time so I could hold books at the library. (Our county has a fantastic library system which allows you to search books and place a hold. Those books are then shipped from any library in the county to my library.)
~ I tried to include fine motor, math, art, language, gross motor… etc. While keeping my kids interests in mind all the time.
~ I did write out a daily schedule (but I’m kind of crazy like that!) It was always flexible because the benefit of being at home rather than in a classroom is that you can scrap the rest of the day if they get really into something. Plus, if you are saving “lesson plan” materials it is really easy to build on what the kids are focused on.
I hope that helps! Let me know if you have any other questions.
Quick thanks Jill for your wonderful blog and all the effort you go to. Keep up the good work and thanks for sharing your ideas.
