Organising my rabble takes some pre planning! here is how we do it. Juggling home ed, a toddler, ADHD child, little Miss independent and home chores while being Autistic myself takes some planning.
So here I have added in how we are doing it now. I will not lie and say we stick to this religiously never missing a heart beat as that would be lying. Life happens and plans have to change (no matter how much I or anyone else hates it when it does!). I wont say it will never change either. After all that is one of the beautiful things about home ed is the flexibility to change as your life does.
But right now this is how we do it.
Organising my rabble!
So we work off a very basic Time table at the moment. You can find this below. Mornings are our Structured learning time. This is when the Children are most open to learning so start there.
