I have a 4 year old and an almost 2 year old. My 4 year old was attending preschool 2x a week for a half day so when our school closed I felt mixed about whether or not to really attempt any kind of “homeschool preschool”.
My daughter really loves to learn and has asked me about writing skills that she was learning during school. So ultimately I decided to do some school-like activities with her (with help from her teachers who have been sending us some amazing ideas #teachersarethebest
So I thought I’d share our new weekday “schedule” to give a little more structure to our days. This is a LOOSE schedule for us. If the girls wake up late (8 is late for our house), I’m letting them sleep! If we are enjoying an activity we can always skip/ push back another one. I firmly believe that letting children be bored is important and so I want to make sure I’m not over-scheduling ourselves.
Shout out to @simplyonpurpose
for the idea to add in a house reset and clean up- seems like a no brainer but I wouldn’t have added that into our routine, and it always takes longer than expected.
I also just saw that @homegrowntraditions
is incorporating life skills into her quarantine routine and I love the ideas she is sharing so we will be incorporating those ideas too!
Do you have a quarantine life schedule? What’s working for you? Let’s share and help each other out!
