Creating a Daily Schedule

In working with our very active preschoolers, I have tried several different schedules to incorporate the different parts of each week’s lesson. Below are two schedules that have worked well for us. Please know that these are just examples and that the times are very flexible as each day and temperament is different.  Also know that in the real world, this doesn't work everyday.  But, hopefully this will help you get into a routine. 

We cover the entire curriculum at least three or four days out of the week but my ultimate goal is that learning occurs throughout each day without the child even knowing it!  You can also view an example of ABCJLM in a Week for the
2 Year Curriculum, 3 Year Curriculum, 4 Year Curriculum, and 5 Year Curriculum.
