Decide which of these Subjects you wish to include. Use the 3 Day or 4 Day Weekly Planner as a reference. Don’t try to plan a year out! Plan for 12 weeks, see how it fits, and go from there. If you’d like to see a year at a glance there are yearly planners on the main Organization page. Resources for religious (or not) variations can be found on the Educational Philosophies page.
If it seems overwhelming, just pick 2 subjects. Work on integrating those into the rhythm of your day. Then add another if you feel like it. The foundation of a good education is READING GOOD BOOKS. Everything else is bonus. Some children really enjoy the structure of knowing what they will learn each day. They tend to be step-by-step learners. Others are much more free spirits. If you have one of the latter, observe and see when they are ready for something new. I call them “fire-hose learners….” When they decide to learn something, bring it on!
