One thing that has worked well for us since the beginning of our homeschool adventure is have school on Saturday, especially in the winter. Some weeks we use it as a catch up if we were behind in what I had planned in a subject.
Other weeks, we have a full blown day of school and a six day school week. (We do take a summer break, so one day closer does not hurt, right?)
Some weeks, we may use a Saturday for a special project. Sometimes, we have no school on Saturday at all and do something fun as a family.
Maybe you work on Saturday, but have another day off thorough the week to use as a catch up day, or even make a six day school week. I’d love to hear what works for your family.
