We were pretty informal last year but I did have a routine of sorts. I started back when the baby was 6 wks old. Now, my oldest was only 5.5 at the time, and as I said pretty informal but it helped having time set aside to do things.
8 am- b-fast- basic things like eggs and such.
9am-singing/circletime- Read-Aloud I just picked up the Wee-Sing book and picked out different things. Then we would have a pile of books and I would read and nurse. No specific books just tons of great pic books from the library. We went to storytime every Tuesday.
10am- or so and then have a snack and then try to go outside or take a break. Sometimes I would bring the chalk outside for them draw letters and numbers or pictures= whatever that was fun and easy. Briefly I had introduced the handwriting book but he wasn't really ready for it until closer to 6. I usually would take a bit of time here and throw a load of laundry in or do some supper prep- or browse on the internet.
11am'ish- We would play games. Games are a great way for them to learn Math and all kinds of things. His Math at that point was very basic, we would do Hi-Ho Cherry-O, Chutes and Ladders, Uno, Cooties, Cranium.
At 12 we would have a basic lunch, often safe lunch meat or leftovers.
12:30p-Movie time oldest would watch while I laid on the couch and nursed and dozed w/ the baby and the 3 y.o. would nap at my feet.
After that we had no specific plan and would muddle along until Daddy got home. It helped as I said to have a routine of sorts even if what we were doing was pretty informal. I would just start at 9 am regardless of what else was going on- there is always cleaning to do. It helped as well especially at first that we had lots of things to do that involved me sitting which was fine w/ a nursing baby. The 3 y.o. just tagged along she would play games right w/ us and listen to the books as well, of course just on her own level.
We kept schooling through most of summer but did take a complete break for 1 month for me to get caught up on all my cleaning and fix our schedule. We started back again in Sep when the babe was 9 months and I am still doing the same basic schedule but doing more specific subjects.
At 8 we still eat-
9 am is school time - we do singing- Lit- Math(RightStart now), Handwriting(HWOT) which is now pretty independent.
10 am-10:30 is snack and break. Depending on how the break goes and when we start it-
11 am is project time- one day is history- one art and one nature study. (Tuesday is Library day and Friday co-op)
12 is lunch time-
12:30 we start read-aloud
1:30-2p Quiet time starts then it is quiet time for 1.5-2 hrs. The 3.5 yo usually sleeps and the 6 y. draws, plays w/ legos or whatever else in his room.
The baby nurses whenever needed during this and it really goes pretty well.
I think that is the basics once I had it all planned out it wasn't that big of a deal.
