Here is the block schedule that we’re doing this year. Due to our life this past year, we have a couple of subjects that we need to finish from last year. I’ve put them in the first block (Geography, Biology, and Civics). Each block is 9 weeks long. I hope this shows up neatly, I tried to put everything into 4 columns.
Becca 11th Grade:
Doing it this way, allowed Emily to fit in an art lesson when she finished typing; since typing only takes about 20-30 minutes. We’re also doing piano for the girls, which is not shown because we’ll be working on it daily, but when we get a chance to. I haven’t set a specific time for it yet.
Basically, I’m taking year-long classes and squashing them into 1/2 year. We’ll be covering 2 lessons a day. For example, Algebra: Lesson 1 and 2 but just do the odd problems. Emily is only in middle school so her schedule is a modified block. I’m not making her do a block math schedule and the same with Spencer in regards to his math.
We’re new at block scheduling, but as of today, we’ll be done by 1:30 pm. I haven’t made a specific timed schedule to follow as of yet because I’m waiting to see how long each class will take in reality. Supposedly each class should be allowed 90 minutes, but with homeschooling, it may not take that long, even though you’re doing two lessons.
I hope this makes sense! We needed a way to get a lot done without spending our entire day doing school. Due to sports, we have to be done by 2 pm every day for practices and games. So, hopefully, this will do the trick!
