3 Days a Week?

Hey all! I was just wondering if anybody homeschools with MBTP doing just 3 days a week? We go to our co-op twice a week, so my other 3 days are the days I'll be trying to get the work in.

How does it work for you? Do you double up lessons each day, or do you just stay a bit behind? We're only on level 4-5, but I'm looking out to future levels too.

I guess really I'm just trying to convince myself it'll be fine lol ��

3 days a week is definitely doable. We do level 4-5 right now and it takes us about 30 minutes to complete a lesson. If you add a reading plan to that, then it may take another 20 minutes per day. We school year round, so it isn't an issue for us. I think you will be just fine.

Hi Brittany,

Ashley is spot on with the Age 4-5 level. It shouldn't be too much of a problem in the younger levels. By the time you get to the Age 7-9 level it may end up being more of a challenge to fit all of the work into three days per week -- unless you homeschool year round.

One solution to this would be to transition the co-op into a Moving Beyond the Page learning center in the future. They are created for co-ops that come together two days per week for class and homeschool the other three. Instead of adding to your workload, the co-op classes take work off your plate since they support your core curriculum. I realize this isn't an option for every co-op, but it is one of the main reasons we created learning centers to begin with.

Let me know if you have any questions.

Well, I also have.

Yes! That's the beauty of homeschooling, and if you continue through the summer you'll end just in time for the following year.
