A Simple Schedule

As much as I would like to be in a position to live life without a schedule, I realize that I can't. With two young daughters whom I homeschool, it seems essential to have a schedule, or at the very least a routine to follow.

What I can do, is have a simple schedule.

I envisioned something flexible and also something visible to everyone.

Here's what I came up with. I bought a poster-sized, week-long chart. I cut off Sunday and Saturday to simplify it.

I bought some velcro dots and affixed one to each day.

I bought some colored dots (labels) and affixed the other half of the velcro dots. I also wrote our subjects/assignments on the dots.

Now we have a simple (not complicated, easy to use), flexible schedule that fits nicely on the side of our kitchen cupboards. We all can refer to it for the day's/week's activities and know what is expected of us.

I chose not to list specific times so we aren't locked in to a rigid time line. I love that we can easily change the order and really make this schedule work for us.

I'm linking up to Works for Me Wednesday at We are THAT Family, for the first time today.
