Schedule & Scope
Follow the Schedule; Work Together with other Family School LDS Homeschoolers
If you’ve homeschooled you’ve heard the terms “scope and sequence”—what a curriculum covers, what order, and over what period of time. Although very important, we feel the schedule is as important as scope and sequence—and not just any schedule, but one that allows you to connect with several others who are using that same schedule.
Following the recommended schedule facilitates a wonderful opportunity to connect, share ideas, and be supported by one another on a daily basis. This daily schedule will allow you to “team” teach with other homeschool parents throughout the world via the free network. Of course following our proposed schedule is not required or essential to using the curriculum successfully. You can easily create your own schedule, too.
Weekly Rotation Schedule:
There are three core subjects (History, Geography, Science), with three humanities subjects (Literature, Art, Music). Each day, your Family School meets for approximately 2 hours, including a 15 to 20 minute recess or break. Core subjects are taught three days each week, with one humanities day, which covers both Literature and Art or Music (depending on the week). Art and Music lessons are approximately 45 each with Literature lessons around 60 minutes each. The weekly rotation schedule we will be using for the 2012/13 school year is as follows.
