Day in the Life Summer Day

This is an example of a typical summer homeschool day for us.

9:35am

My son woke up this morning and asked to watch the Jungle Book movie. This most likely happened because he listened to a short audio version the night before for his bedtime reading. I consider this a parental win!

There are about 3 versions of this movie. We watched the latest remake made in 2016. The graphics are outstanding! There are lots to animals to spot and discuss.  My son spotted monkeys, snakes, brown bear, flying bats and more.

11:40am

After watching the movie, my son had a break with his toys in his room for about an hr.

Noon

Lunch

*We often times do not follow a strict schedule. So while I’m working on preparing lunch or getting the afternoon lesson ready he will complete his math tasks for the day. Most days this lasts for about an hour depending on the lesson.

1pm

For this 4th grade year, I will not be “teaching” Math. All of the curricula mentioned is completed online.

We use a combination of http://www.teachingtextbooks.com, http://www.ixl.com, and http://www.khanacademy.com for the lectures and practice. Today my son used the latter and learned about Roman numerals. A subject in which he ASKED to learn.

Again, he ASKED to learn about that…

For the other subjects, we work out of the curriculum workbooks or find subjects from our library books to study about.

2:10pm

All homeschool activities were completed.
