Ready for today’s special homeschool edition? We’re talking about Loop Scheduling!
Let’s talk Loop Scheduling!
Who is it for?
The homeschool mom who wants to make space for a variety of subjects without sacrificing the essentials.
How does it work?
1. Start by listing the subjects that you want to loop. You can emphasize a subject by adding it more than once and hitting it several times within the loop or you can list just a few subjects and repeat them during the same week.
2. Designate a time period during your homeschool day for your loop.
3. At loop time, simply do the next subject on the list. Keep track of where you are by checking off the day every time you do a subject. You can laminate our schedule or use colored pens to indicate different weeks.
Pro tip: Loop scheduling allows you to cover a variety of subjects without worrying that something is getting pushed to the bottom. The system is infinitely customizable- you can loop just about anything! You can also schedule loops inside your loops to make sure you hit a variety of subtopics or activities within each subject- the possibilities are endless!
Watch the video below to get a peek into how you can incorporate Loop Scheduling into YOUR homeschool days!
I hope these tips have helped you get started thinking through your own schedule! We talk a lot more about this in our Plan Your Homeschool Year Workshop. You can access that for FREE right here!
