Homeschool Plans | 2nd Grade 2016-2017

We are a few weeks into our third year of homeschooling.   I’m finally getting around to sharing our homeschool plans.  This year I have a second grader and a kindergartner… and a toddler who asks for school work daily.  Our life has drastically and thankfully settled down this year compared to the previous two.  I have a really great feeling about this school year and that isn’t something I honestly experienced during 2014 & 2015 because life was just so messy.  This feeling of contentment and acceptance that has settled into my heart is a good thing and it’s extra sweet when it comes to being home with 3 kids constantly.

Homeschool Plans | Schedule

I had our schedule all mapped out with 4 day weeks and our time off, but we’ve already blown it to bits.  We’ve schooled 5 days each week when I had only planned 4.  I am not a well scheduled person so I should just accept this about myself.  It’s easy to look at other homeschool moms with their days mapped out to the hour and think I should be like her, but that’s not who I am.  We are an extremely flexible homeschooling family.  We usually don’t even begin school until after lunch.  Every year I sit down and schedule our 150 days with the best of intentions and within days, we are not sticking to that schedule so I should quit wasting my time making it!  As long as we are schooling, learning, and covering the needed material, I am satisfied.

Overall I’m excited to jump into this second grade year with Bryson.  I’m praying for a great year filled with fun and learning.  We have a cruise planned for later this year and I hope to work in a lot more field trips than in the past.  I’d love to take a trip to the zoo, the aquarium, and the discovery museum.

  • I homeschool my child. It was based on my finances. I got a few cheap workbooks at a bookshop. We do art, cookery, gardening and creative writing. We visit the museums, and spend a lot of time at art galleries. I use a lot of free unit studies in addition. We play so many board games. I also teach history, geography, bible study, French, literature, math, and woodwork. We do sports and thinking skills. is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to
