How Does Your School Day Get Off Track

If we start each school day with a reasonable list of things to complete that day, why does it sometimes drag on and on? In the video slide show I have included below, I walk you through one of those reasonable lists and show how it can so easily go astray.

I know this video leaves unanswered questions, like, “So what do I do about it?!”

In my next post, I will talk about the tool Charlotte Mason used to make their school list (the programmes) work for them.

    Thank you for linking to your blog Elisabeth. I found my way there and enjoyed reading some of it. Part II is almost up. It has actually turned into several parts!

    I enjoyed this so much, Nicole! Your video demonstration was excellent – so well thought out and understandable. I'm making my way through the series and truly enjoying it. These ideas are finding room in my thoughts and I'm grateful for the expanse of details in the practicals you've shared!

    I've been meaning to watch this video for a really long time because it doesn't play on my phone. I finally remembered to watch while I have the computer on and I'm so excited to continue with the next post! You must live in my house because that's the exact way our day goes. I'm so hopeful that this blog series can help us for next year.

    Thank you for your note, Katrina. I wrote all of that up based on personal experience, so I'm right there with you! Happily, life has change completely since implementing a reasonable schedule!

      Hi Stephani O,

      I noticed the same thing. On my screen, where there should have been a video, the screen was blank. I double-clicked in the blank area where the video should have been. A message popped up saying that my flash player was out of date. After following the prompts to download the updated flash player, then restarting my browser, the video was there. I hope this helps 🙂
