Planning/Scheduling

Making Room For Rough Days

A quick homeschool planning tip:  When I plan out our homeschool schedule for the month, I try to include at least two empty days in my lesson plans. Usually one day every two weeks or so.    That gives me a bit of wiggle room for the unexpected.    The day that someone wakes up with a fever, or a lesson that was supposed to take one or two days ends up taking two or three.  Sometimes I have to drop everything and take care of an urgent need.

Planning ahead for the unexpected can relieve stress .  If I need the day, it is already built into my schedule.  If I don’t need it, I just move on to the next planned day.  Easy and very helpful.
