I was wondering what schedules are being used for homeschooling? A schedule like public schools, 5 days a week, 9 months a year? 6-7 hours a day? Year 'round school? Or something else? I am considering year 'round or else an abbreviated schedule during the summer (2-4 hours a day for 3 days a week). I am really tending toward completing the year the end of May and doing 9 weeks of summer school on special projects like gold mining, bird watching, salmon migration, trees, and insects. I.E, things that we can get out and get hands-on that we cannot do during winter months. Would love to hear what others are doing for schedules and any ideas for summer teaching topics.
