Homeschool Schedule for Work from Home Parents

Sample homeschool schedule for work from home parents for a kindergartner, preschooler and baby. Lots of time for free play, outdoor time, some screen time and art time along with reading, writing and math.
Playing dress-up can definitely be part of homeschool!
I have struggled with putting together a schedule that works for my family to use during this time of homeschooling. Here is my list of activities to do with your kids from home that I shared last week. We have already adjusted our schedule quite a bit for what works from our family and I'm sure, we will continue to adjust as needed. Troy is a teacher that is teaching online from home. I blog full-time and am trying to fit it in with 3 young kids at home (ages 5 1/2, almost 3 and 8 months old).

We are doing this schedule Monday-Friday. On the weekend, we are definitely going to need a much deserved break!! This schedule is what is working for us at this time. Feel free to copy and adjust as needed.

Art time

Here is our current homeschool schedule:

Other things that we fit in in random spots
-Kid baths
-Art- coloring, drawing, etc.
-Adalyn's school principle sends a video daily of him reading a story to the kids- we watch this daily

Sibling cuddles are perfect!
I feel vulnerable sharing our schedule for some reason as it makes our lives open to judgment but I thought, if I can help a few parents, I would!


  1. This is such a good schedule! We're going to have to try that live Kindergarten with Kinsley!
