A Day In The Life Of A Homeschooler...

Hi! I'm Aidan. I am 9 years old and in 5th Grade. Here is what my homeschool day looks like!  






It was Monday and I woke up when my crazy alarm clock went off. It was 8:01 am. I made up my bed and got dressed. 







I ate my breakfast. My shirt was wet from combing my hair. haha. Since it was Monday we had to go get my allergy shots at the clinic. My brother Noah and I watched tv until it was time to leave. 






I worked on my Math while I was at the clinic. Then I have less to do when I get home.. and more time to play. 







I took our dog, Maddie, for a walk when I got home and I played with my brother for a little while. 








Then it was time to finish school. I read my awesome book (Jurassic World) to Maddie. She loves to hear me read. Then I did Spelling with Mommy. She called out my spelling words and I wrote them on the whiteboard. I got them all right so I put a new sticker on my chart. That means I'm finished with that lesson. 








Next we had Bible Study. We usually have Bible first but since I went for shots we had to do it later. Mommy read to us from the Bible then we learned about why we should read our Bible everyday. 













I love doing my writing class. I get to sit in the living room and get taught by this crazy guy on tv. There are other kids in the classroom on tv and they are fun to watch. I hated writing last year... but now I like it!







This is my planner that I use to get all my school work done. I write down what I have to do for the week and I check it off. This week Mommy wrote it all down for me. 









Sometimes I take breaks when I finish my independent work. Mommy and Noah are still working so I play with Maddie, talk to Daddy on the phone (he's at work), and sometimes I play the homeschool games on my ipad. We can only play the homeschool games on days we have school. We get to play our other games on "electronic days". 






Time for lunch! 








After lunch we help Mommy clean up then we got to play outside. We were making funny voices in the fan. Then I came inside and played my guitar. 









Next it was time for History. Mommy read to us about John Smith today. We looked at some books and talked about John Smith, Jamestown and Pocahontas. 










In Science we have learned about many different animals. Today we were learning more about mammals. I read a book about bears to everyone and colored a picture of a bear for my Science folder. 








The end of school today Mommy read a book about the presidents. Then we went over the presidents in order. We have learned up to the 20th president so far! 











After school we ate supper, my Daddy came home from work, I played outside with my brother, practiced shooting my bb gun and my bow. 







At 9:30 pm it was bedtime. My Daddy read us a few more chapters in Squanto and that's all... I prayed and went to sleep! 







What I like about Homeschool::
  • Everyday is different! Some days we have Art, Music and some days we have Science and History. There is never a day that is the same and I like it! 
  • I don't have to get out of bed early. I usually wake up at 7:30 am or 8:00 am and we start school around 9:00 am. 
  • We go on lots of field trips. 
  • I get to see my friends whenever I want to. 
  • I get finished with school early. 
  • Science and History are fun! 


What I don't like about Homeschool::
  • Chores - I like getting my allowance but I don't like doing chores. haha 
  • School work - Does anyone really like school work? haha
  • My brother sometimes drives me crazy. haha. 
  • I don't get to play video games on days I have school. 


Hope you liked reading about my school day! Bye!
