    Default Strategy: Schedule/Lesson Plan

    I have found that breaking up Language arts into separate subjects is very helpful. During the Summer, I will focus on teaching my son Language Arts and Math for the up and coming grade level. Then during the school year, I will use all subjects to reinforce what is being learned through the school year.

    Language Arts
    -Reading: 1st 7 Topics, Pioneers...Famous Americans
    -Comprehend & Respond
    -Grammer
    -Literature
    -Written Communication or Convention of Language (either one, every other day)

    Also, We printed out the Lesson Plans. I divided the total number of lessons over the allotted number of days, to find out how many lessons in each subject should be done daily. Then as my son completes each lesson, we highlight, with a highlighter, the lesson activity numbers that was completed. We also make note of the Quizzes done by notating a Q at the end of the section.

    Our plan for the summer is as follows (this is for the 4th grade level):

    Language Arts: 30 days(Each category - daily)
    -Reading (2 days per Lesson Code)
    -Comprehend & Respond (1 day per Lesson Code)
    -Grammer (1 day per Lesson Code)
    -Literature (2 days per Lesson Code
    -Written Communication or Convention of Language (either subject, every other day) (1 day per Lesson Code)

    Math: 30 days

    (2 Lesson codes per day)

    I found your schedule very interesting and I may consider adopting some of them. I originally decided to have my son do one lesson in each subject every day. The first two days he did 2-3 lessons in math and language arts but my son found by the third lesson in math that he was tired. Today we are going to see how long it takes to do one lesson in every subject. I want him to get a substantial amount of work done a day before his brain just turns off from overload.

    Since my son is 13 years old, I want him to be more proactive and be responsible doing his lessons and keeping track of his progress. So printing a chart would be a good start. Of course, I will keep track of his progress reports.

    We just started here for our younger two (both grade 4) but our oldest is 13 and she homeschools with a different program. Her's is flexible as well and it has taken us a little bit to find out what works best. She said for her it works best to do one subject a day. She's in the 8th grade and alot of her work can get rather involved. She said it's easier for her and she learns and retains more knowledge if she is able to focus on one subject a day and get all her assignments for that week done in a day. Math we do twice a day though, Tues. & Thurs.

    This is great. When members ask about planning lessons I am going to send them to read this thread as a possible option.

    Great!
