I always get a lot of questions from my friends and family about our daily routine and how I schedule and get things done. Well, here`s what I keep in mind when planning out our day. While each day can bring on a chaos of its own, we do have a basic routine that we try to stick to. Obviously, things don’t always run smoothly around here, and some days are crazier than others. But I like to, at least, have a general guideline to get me through the day. One thing I do recommend getting is an Agenda to write your plan down in or a large desktop calendar.

Here are some more basic tips to help keep things organized and running smoothly…

Set a basic family schedule
Setting a basic routine that your family follows can be a vital element to your homeschooling journey. For example dictating Monday as laundry day, Tuesday as bathrooms, and so on can help you stay on top of things instead of feeling like you’re drowning in a sea of tasks. You can rest, knowing at some point during the week, everything will get taken care of.
Delegate household tasks
If everyone is chipping in to help, chores won’t seem so daunting. Don’t be fooled by the younger ages of your children. Teaching them life-skills even at an early age is entirely appropriate and also gives them a sense of worth and belonging in your family unit.
Keep things simple
Set expectations based on the needs of your family. Pairing down on activities, or labor-intensive curriculum, might just save some of your sanity on a day to day basis.
Plan ahead
I really can’t stress it enough. Being organized is extremely helpful in getting through a homeschooling year. When we don’t plan ahead we find ourselves flying by the seat of our pants, unprepared for activities, and sometimes even in a state of chaos in the classroom as we’re scrounging for supplies and materials. If you’ve planned ahead and done your job well, then the homeschooling part is a matter of following a preset plan. You will find yourself much more prepared, and much less stressed.
Having some sort of routine that you follow will go a long way to helping you stay above water. And good time management is crucial to both your mental and physical well-being. Do you homeschool and want to share your tips or share your schedule? Feel free to do so below!
