Homeschooling Day in the Life: Anna, Homeschooling Mom of Four, Living in South Carolina

Day in the life Anna

A homeschool day in the life looks different almost every day, right? Over on our Instagram page, we love to give you a peek into lots of homeschool days regardless of how they change day to day.

Today, we’re going to give you a peek into the homeschool day in the life of Anna, homeschooling mom of four kids, living in South Carolina.

We can all learn and be inspired by one another, regardless of our homeschool approach. It’s not about looking good for social media, it’s about the connection going on inside our homeschool walls and sharing with others what works for us.We might all homeschool a little differently, but we can always look for ideas from each other that inspire, encourage and equip us in our own homeschool days. So each week we create blog posts for you to access later of each of those “days in the life”. We hope you keep coming back for more inspiration. Keep going, mama! These days at home are so worth it!

Good Morning!

Good morning!☀️

Hey friends! I’m SO excited to be with you all this morning! I have been so looking forward to this! I can’t wait to share my day with you! I typically wake up between 6-7 and today I woke up a little after 6. First things first, COFFEE! ☕️ ALWAYS! You too? I get up and head straight to the coffee pot. Once I have coffee in hand, I head to the living room (or if the kids are awake I do this in my bedroom) and start my Bible study. My husband and I are currently reading through the Bible in a year chronologically and we are gleaning SO much! The kids usually start to wake between 7-730.

Once I have my quiet time, I start a few house chores (make my bed, laundry, feed sourdough starter, etc), get the kids breakfast (we’re having sourdough cinnamon rolls that I had in the freezer this morning), then I usually get a quick workout in before school. During that time the kids are also doing chores and starting on their independent schoolwork.

See ya soon for the start of our homeschool day!

Homeschool Schedule Tips

It’s so important to have some type of rhythm, routine or schedule to your homeschool days. Without some type of structure, things can get out of hand and missed very quickly (ask me how I know). Having some type of structure helps everyone to be on the same page, feel secure, and less stressed and it also just makes for a much more peaceful homeschooling day. There are SO many different types of homeschool schedules (time, loop, block, rhythm) out there and which one you choose really depends on your family and your needs. For us, we really love a time schedule. That isn’t to say we always stick rigidly to the times. After all, the beauty of homeschooling is all about the flexibility, but we do try hard to stay as close to them as possible. This anchors our day and helps us stay focused and on track.

Bible + History Time

Our homeschool year is coming to a close and we have LOVED our Bible and history this year! I think these two have been my favorite part for sure! We start our day with morning time, which for us is mostly just Bible.

Here’s how our morning time typically starts:

We then either move on to history right then or we save it for later in the day (depends on this mama’s mood, my kid’s mood, and how mischievous my toddler is being that day 🤪). We have been learning about pioneer times in history and it has been a really fun experience for everyone. Today we learned about the clothing that the early settlers wore and how they made their clothing. It was so interesting and the kids even practiced their sewing with yarn and card stock.

Once this is done, we will finish up core studies (my big kids did about half of theirs already early this morning), then it’s on to lunch!

I hope our day was an encouragement to you. Thanks for having me, Learning Well! It was such a pleasure to spend the day with you guys! Until next time!
