    Default We are new

    Hello Everyone,
    We are new to homeschooling, I found Time4Learning while searching for curriculum and it has been a true blessing. My son has been having a really hard time this year. After trying to get help at school became a waste of time. We decided to do homeschooling. Time4Learning has been working out great however I’m wondering how many subjects are recommend in a day? I must admit I’m kinda struggling with how much is two little and how much is to much. Please help me!!

    Welcome! How much to do each day really depends on your child, your state requirements and your expectations. From 2nd-8th grades (we didn't use a formal curriculum for k &1st) the most time we spent on t4l work was 3hrs a day, with most days being between 1 1/2 to 2 1/2 hrs. I try not to do all subjects each day, as that seems overwhelming. I tried to get in math every day, then alternated : Mon & Wed Science & social studies, Tue & Thurs language arts & la ext. Friday was catch up day or free day. We would do 1 lesson (2-3 activities, if more than 3 activities in a lesson, we did it over 2 days) per day for those subjects.
    I say TRIED to do it that way, because sometimes it didn't work out. Math would take longer, so we only did it that day or C was really interested in the social studies topic, so we spent all the time on it one day & doubled up on science the next. By homeschooling, you have to flexibility to do that.
