Homeschool Daily Schedule Printable

As a homeschooling Mom of 5 for the past 10 years, there’s something that I get asked about a lot. And that’s a homeschool daily schedule!

And with recent events in the world, more and more people are homeschooling than ever before! So just in time, in partnership with my friends at Hadley Designs, I’m giving you a free homeschooling daily schedule printable!

How many hours a day should my kids be doing school?

This is a very common question also. I know that when you are first starting out with homeschooling, especially if you aren’t part of a co-op or hybrid school, you feel like you are just making up random plans and schedules! But trust me, you don’t need to stress about it! Here’s a general idea of how long each are group or grade level should be doing school per day:

  • Pre-K: 1 hour
  • Kindergarten: 1-3 hours
  • 1st and 2nd: 2-4 hours
  • 3rd/4th/5th: 3-5 hours
  • Middle School: 3-6 hours
  • High School: 4-6 hours

Of course, this is only my opinion and just a very general overview. There are many situations where this number will increase or decrease depending on the child and the learning requirements. There are also many situations in which the number of hours per day will need to be adjusted based on a family situation. If Mom’s sick for example, all schedules go out the window!

What counts as “school”?

Again, there are a lot of different opinions on this. But in our home, in addition to the regular school subjects like math, reading, science, and history, we also count many other things for “school.” And this isn’t a stretch at all! For example, piano practice and lessons, art, recess or playing outside and puzzles can all be counted as schooling time. This is especially true for elementary school kids, but shouldn’t be neglected for middle school and high school either. Be sure to check out my post on homeschooling high school for more information on that age group!

    If we do the homeschool printable , and we decide to put our child back in publi school, will they her work be counted to where she can start back in her same grade?

    • amber

      It would depend on your local school to make that decision. They may so some testing to see where she’s at if she returns to traditional public school. But if you stay on track at home, she should be fine to just jump right back in!

      • Lisa

        My daughter wants to learn at home. We have had so many friend’s and family member’s pass away due to Covid. Do I have to put her in an accredited school or can we do lessons at home together without being threatened with truancy charges?

        • amber

          It really depends on your state and county’s specific requirements. In most places, you need to register as a homeschooler with the school or District in order to avoid truancy issues. But you definitely don’t absolutely need to have an accredited program in order to homeschool! I have a course coming out soon that covers ALL things homeschooling. Feel free to email me to sign up and to ask me any specifics!
