Printable Homeschool Schedules
Deciding its time your family needs some homeschool schedules? Welcome to the problem of most homeschoolers...
Finding homeschool schedules to work for your family. Here we have 5 Unique Printable Homeschool Charts to help you stay organized!!
Recently our children started back to school from the Christmas holidays. I use a schedule for all 7 of them.
"I want you up, dressed, your bed made, and your breakfast eaten, teeth brushed, and I want you to present yourself with your pencil by 7:45 at your desk with your Bible and Journal open!!"
Having nine children, seven of which are in school. I have found that keeping organized is very important for my sanity! :)
Looking at sample homeschooling schedules is a great way to come up with ideas for your own, but at some point you need to create YOUR family schedule and implement it!
Organize Your Homeschool
With Free Printable Homeschool Schedules
Break Down Your Child's Lessons
- A traditional school year is 36 weeks, 180 days.
- Some elementary curriculum has the lessons numbers at the bottom of each work text page.
- Take the total number of pages in your child's book
- Divide the total number of pages by the total number of school days (180)
- For example: a book with 300 pages divided by 180 days of school would be around 1 ½ pages a day.
- Assign these pages...enter in the child's daily, weekly, or monthly schedule. (scroll down for free printables).

2. Daily Homeschool Schedule Check List
"Stuff to do Chart"
Many of my children work independently. With 9 children, One of my biggest problems was keeping up with what every child had finished each day for school.
I was getting confused with who had shown me what or if one child had not finished his assignment. These chart were created out of that frustration!!
We have Three Charts Available:
Place Every task that you want your child to do every day on this chart. As the child finishes each task, Mom or Dad signs the list or it is checked off and the child continues on to the next task on the chart.
I even do this for my high school children. With the added responsibilities of more school work/projects, keeping up with what they are doing is even more important.
Laminating this chart can save you on printing a new one every week.
A reward is given at the end of the week for a perfectly completed “Stuff to do” Chart!
Examples of what I put on this chart:
- Make bed
- Brush teeth
- Bible reading/journal
- Desk straightened
- Room clean
- Verse memorised
3.Daily Homeschool Assignment Sheet
Some of my elementary children like this assignment sheet. After you break down the assignments, place them in this Daily Sheet...
List all the assignments you want the child to finish for the day. It keeps them on track and you more organized!!
4. Weekly Homeschool Assignment Sheet
My high school students write down an entire weeks assignment and stay organized for the week. Tests, quizzes, homework, and reading assignments can be seen at a glance!
5. Homeschool Monthly Schedule
Write down all assignments, lesson plans, test, quizzes, papers, days off... for a entire month with this schedule.
Use one sheet for each subject...or...use one for each child
Homeschoolers generally have a lot of freedom in setting up their schedules, and it sometimes takes a while to find out what works best for the family.
It's helpful to read what other family schedules look like...read or write yours!

Hi everyone! Did you survive the back to school craze with your sanity intact? So far for us, the first week has been mixed. Liam’s school seems very chaotic right now, as the teachers are busy finishing up final class assignments. Hopefully, they’ll be in their new classes at the end of the day today. On the other hand, our Teen’s start of school has been smooth sailing, and yes, there were sniffles from me on the first day. It’s not everyday your little baby starts high school. (I think I’m still in a little bit of time shock) Yesterday was his first full day of classes, and in typical high-school fashion, he came home with homework. Which ties in perfectly with today’s post.
That’s right, this one comes from one of you lovely readers. You girls (and guys if there are any out there that read this little ole blog of mine) are the best, and being able to not just share printables with you, but to help you get the ones you want/need/have-spent-days-searching-for-but-couldn’t-find-exactly-what-you-were-looking-for, totally makes my day. The timing of this one couldn’t be better either. With the new school year swinging into action, those of you with middle. junior, and high school students know that homework could start getting a little crazy. It’s not just a matter of helping our kids get their homework done, but they need a way to remember what class assigned what and when it is due. I know this craziness well, so when “L” asked me if I could make up a half-size planner for her daughter I jumped right in.
The idea was simple, spread a week out over two pages, so there is plenty of room to write. Find a way to keep track of assignments and due dates, and try to fit in a little room for keep track of upcoming tests, and if possible a spot for a to do list or notes. Add in some fun colors and some pretty fonts, and you’ve got a student planner! I had so much fun working on this one, and then I decided to have even more fun and make two! Here’s the one I call the Girly One!
And here’s the one that I call Boyish.
Like I said above, it’s simple. Each day there is space for jotting down the class, the assignment and the due date. I opted to just do school days, so if anyone wants one with space for the weekend, let me know in the comments and I’ll see what I can do.\
As always, these are here for you to download and enjoy, just simply click the photos. Oh and don’t forget that I’m offering Free Personalization for the Family Homecare Printable (see here) from now until September 30th, 2013. So hop on over and fill out the form if you would like a copy of your own.
I know it’s been a little while since I’ve done a Reader Request post, but stay tuned, because this monthly feature is coming back. (and if I get in enough requests, it might end up being a twice monthly feature)
