Back to School Schedule

Schedule, Schedule, Schedule.
Written by Krista

So, "they" say that kids like structure. I know this is true...it's just hard to follow!

My oldest goes back to school in a few weeks. (1st grade! Yikes!) We have a pretty crazy schedule, and I would like to see some structure.

So, I’m going to post a schedule here, and then try it for one week!
I challenge you to sit down and make a schedule too!
Let me know how it works for you!

My School Schedule
Wake up until 1pm: Wake, dress, eat, play with Dad. (Mom is at work)
1:00-2:30 Lunch, activities with 2 younger kids. "Preschool" time
2:30-3:15 Pick up Tanner from school.
3:15-4:30 Free play
4:30 Reading time/Homework time
6:00 Dinner
After dinner play, clean, bedtime. (hubby works afternoons/evenings. Gets home at 10pm)

So…the challenge is on! Add your link to the comments if you accept the schedule challenge! Blog your schedule, and the results!

What kind of schedule do you have? What is your biggest obstacle to keeping to a schedule? Any fun ideas to add to my schedule?


  1. I desperately need to come up with a better schedule- everyone is happier when we stick to a routine..
    Stopping by from SITS!

  2. I did even better than just a schedule. I made a cork board, pins, and full fledged calendar. I am determined to not miss a thing this year!

  3. I did the cork board thing too. I bought a nice one from Pottery Barn - thought if it looked nice I would pay more attention to it. :) It has helped me keep on track of things.

    Unfortunately, we don't have too strict of a schedule. We'd be better off if we did. I went back to teaching a few years ago. Now I'm so tired at the end of the day that it's hard to stick to a schedule.

  4. I have a corkboard...maybe I should hang it somewhere...

    I totally understand about being too tired Karen! I'm the same way, and it's hard to cook dinner!
