I’m not a teacher. Sure, I have this website that has some fun ideas on it that happen to dovetail with learning, but I’m not a teacher and before this pandemic a didn’t give a homeschool schedule a second thought.
I don’t have the patience for math (YUCK!) or teaching a little person how to read or explaining spelling. But here we are. Now we are all moms, teachers, caretakers and all the while worrying about what the future will hold with the coronavirus creeping closer and closer.
I’ll be honest, when they first canceled school for four weeks, I sort of panicked. As a mother, I had been hoping they would cancel it. As a person who doesn’t teach, I was – and still am – a bit lost.
Our school district has been really helpful, but it’s not a well-off school district. We don’t have a district-wide online learning system for a homeschool schedule. Additionally, a portion of the students in our district don’t have access to internet at home, especially with the library closed.
The teachers have sent home packets but in reality, the packets our teacher sent home might take my daughter about 30 minutes to complete. It’s certainly not going to fill a school day. My son’s school – he’s in preschool – didn’t send anything home.
Basically, I was on my own when it came to making a structure our days and how to work while teaching two kids.
But, I think I’ve finally found something that’s realistic for us.
Do we do this homeschool schedule every day? No. We sure don’t. But I do try to stick to this kind of a schedule for at least four days a week. (I’m a big fan of taking Fridays off. 🙂 )
Here’s our schedule that I’ve tried to follow with a 4-year-old and a 7-year-old

What an awesome schedule!! I need one of these for my son – he’s only one, but it would be good to get on a better schedule!
This is such a great schedule! We’ve just been pretty lax around here. So long a schoolwork gets done, I don’t have specific times for anyone, but my kids are teens.
In these tough times we are all held up together and parents are asked to teach and entertain their young children. This schedule can help keep kids on task when learning is important.
That’s a great schedule. I like that you’ve included plenty of active and playtime into the schedule. As a former teacher, I think that’s very important to balance with learning times.
It’s so important to stay on track or the day gets away from you. This is a great resource for home learning!
This is a wonderful idea. Thanks for creating this printable.
I was already homeschooling one of my middle schoolers before the pandemic hit, but now I have both of my kids home. Our day is a little more unstructured than this since one is doing online teacher-assigned school and the other is doing the work I assign. It’s so important to have consistency for our kids during uncertain times and having a schedule like this is an awesome resource for parents!
This is a great schedule to get started with a routine. I think we all crave consistency at this point and it is nice to have something to work from.
I just read somewhere that homeschool should be no more than a couple of hours for elementary school and 3-4 for older kids. Any truth in that?
I definitely needed this!! Thank you so much for sharing.
I need to start my boys on a schedule. This printable is something that I need to print.
I like that you’ve broken down the time they will spend on certain subjects. We are working on online learning for our kid’s school. The system hasn’t been the best. We are overwhelmed. This schedule does come in handy though
This has great detail and organization — things i’m sure many parents not used to homeschooling can definitely appreciate!
You have everything so well planned out! Great idea to break up the time for each subject.
These would definitely keep the kids busy. I am going to grab a few of these!
Our schools are staying closed, as of now, until May 4th. The government has set up a website and the teachers are going to be putting something together for the students. My son could definitely benefit from a schedule.
I will share this with my stepdaughter she has a boy and now with the schools being closed, she needs tips on how to provide a structure.
I need this schedule. It’s easy and clear. It will help me a lot! Thanks for sharing!
This schedule helps you get on your track and really fun. This gives you a time for your kid. While this pandemic is still going on, this helps your child to learn even without the school activities.
This homeschool really keep our children on track. It’s not just the word homeschool but this still gives our children to have time playing. This really helps alot.
This homeschool schedule is awesome! A great help for moms to make sure that their children are on track. I will share with my friends and relatives.
This is such a great schedule and so well-detailed! I’ll be sure to share with my friend who has school-aged children and are totally bored during this time. This may help them with structure!
I love this idea! This is going to be so helpful for so many parents while kids are home from school.
This is such an amazing idea! Thank you so much for sharing!
This is a nice, solid homeschool schedule for those looking for one!
This one is very helpful for moms out there. This is much needed because of the lockdown
This is super helpful. I don’t have my kids on a strict schedule. But they do have to do academics throughout the day.
Wow! Your schedule is super detailed, and VERY well organized! 🙂 LOL Mine was a lot more lax than this, when I was “homeschooling” for 2 weeks before they let our teachers teach virtually…
What a great schedule! I know I need to get on one with the kids – This would probably really help keep them on track
I have to admit that I’m new at homeschooling and so are my kids. We are figuring it out, but having it all scheduled for us would make things so much simpler. Thank you so much for sharing your schedule. It sounds like a great way to set expectations and routines for your day.
This Free Printable Daily Homeschool Schedule would be a really huge help for us. My son is currently homeschooling right now and this is a perfect way to keep track of his schedules.
Thank you for this. It’s just what I needed for my kids. We are in our first week of homeschooling and I’m lost. Thanks once again.
This is great for us newbies who are trying to navigate some resemblance of a homeschool life! It’s harder than I thought it would be.
love the details included in the schedule..
wonderful and easy for kids, thanks for sharing.
