My question to you is… summer is coming, are you ready?
I did some searching around and found some great advice, helpful tips, printable schedules and more.
and I thought maybe you could use them too!
I really love this idea of using themes to make your kids weekly schedule.
When I was teaching, I based all my lesson plans on themes.
It was a super fun, creative way for me to teach and
the kids really got involved and looked forward to each of the themes.
Poppy Seed Projects has a theme for each day of the week.
I personally like “Take A Trip Tuesday”~ I always want to go somewhere! 🙂
Read more details about each week’s theme and even print out the chart.
I have another example of a working summer routine.
It’s more of a traditional daily time schedule…
that is for Monday-Thursday with Friday being a Fun Day.
I like her idea of having a fun day activity at the end of the week.
It gives the kids something to look forward to and encourages good behavior.
She shows a day in the life of the schedule and you can also
print the above schedule for your own use.
You can choose to use any one of these idea or
combine some ideas together to personalize a routine for your home.
My advice is to make a schedule that is realistic and easy to stick to you for both you and the kids.
So, have you planned your summer schedule yet?
Do you know of any other tips or tricks to keep everyone at home sane through the summer?
