We are balancing out last week’s post by visiting what after school looks like this week.
Our routine goes something like this: we almost always talk on the phone with my mom after school for about 15-20 minutes. I then give my daughter until about 4:15 to do whatever she likes. Then we start homework. Each week we get a homework packet on Monday, and all of the assignments are due on Friday (with the exception of math, which is about 20-25 problems due the next day). I really love this system because we can get most of the homework done early in the week and then just have the math to finish every night. By nature, my daughter is probably more of a procrastinator than I am, but we are working on that!
After homework, we have dinner, take a shower, watch TV, read and then go to bed. And that’s pretty much our after school routine! I’m looking forward to a week off next week for Thanksgiving!
