Hello Homeschool Mommas,
I wanted to share how we are scheduling our days for success and how I am meeting my state’s requirements for 2021-2022 homeschool year. We will complete our curriculum by the end of our homeschool year and I will give you a break down of how we are able to do that in this blog post.

I know it is not all about finishing the curriculum and I don’t get bent out of shape if I don’t complete all of our curriculum but I can finish out my curriculum because when I pick it, I make sure it aligns with how many days we are required to homeschool for my states requirement.
I think I have the personality type that needs to complete what I started. I am a person that like lists and marking them off. I am task driven and I like my days structure.
But I wasn’t always like this. I got like this after I was feeling so overwhelmed, stressed and disorganized in my days. I wanted to feel organized, peaceful and like my days had structure. So I decluttered everything in my life to feel this way. If you want to know how I did it click here
I don’t think there is nothing wrong with having a plan, just make sure your plan have some flexibility. So this is how I am scheduling my days for success.
We have to do 1000 homesschool hours in the state I live in. I plan on homeschooling for 6 hours a day and 6 days a week.
We are homeschooling on Saturday as well. Our Saturdays will only be filled with field trips and hand on projects, like art and science. Our 6 hours days includes gym and lunch. Our intended start time is at 8:00am and will end at 2:00pm.
How I came up with meeting my state requirements.
I multiplied 6 hours per day × 6 days per week which = 36 hours of schooling per week.
Since most months have 4 weeks. I then multiplied 36 hours per week × 4 weeks per month which equals 144 school hours per month. If a month have a 5th week. I will use that week as a break off of school week.
I then multiplied 144 hours per month × 7 months per year which equals 1008 hours per homeschool year. So we will get done with our homeschool year in 7 months.
We are starting our new school year June 2021 and will end our school year in January 2022. I will play with our free weeks and save them for special holidays like Christmas, Thanksgiving and New Years.
This is the first year I decided to homeschool school year around, if everything works out then my homeschoolers will complete 2 grade years in 1 school year, resulting in early highschool graduation.
In my next blog post I will show you how I plan out my subjects to complete our curriculum within our homeschool year.
I hope this blog post has helped you to create a plan that works for your homeschool and state requirements.
