HOMESCHOOL ROUTINE 2020

Hey loves! I’m sharing what our days and homeschool routine looks like this fall! Landon is in Kindergarten so I’m sharing how we’re doing that, as well as some lunch and meal ideas! I hope this helps you figure out what your new routine will be like for this fall!

For breakfast we usually will just heat up some of the pancakes that I had prepped earlier in the week! It’s just so easy to make a big batch, freeze them, and then I just have to pop them in the microwave for 45 seconds!

Once the kiddos are done with their breakfast, I will do a quick tidy of the kitchen, eat my breakfast and start prepping for the day!

For our homeschool routine, I made a homeschool printable with a schedule of what our days will look like! I try to start homeschool between 9:00 – 9:45 and we’ll do a warm up activity, do the pledge and go over the days of the week and weather. For this days warm up, Landon worked on a writing activity.

Between 9:45 – 10:15 we will read into a reading lesson or social studies depending on the day. Then if we need to take a snack or stretch break, we’ll do that around 10:30. After that we move to a math lesson! We did a fun addition activities with my friends worksheets from abcdeelearning.com!

Around 11-11:30 we’ll do an art. dance yoga, music or outdoor activities! This day Landon painted while I got lunch started and did a clean up of the homeschool room.

For lunch, we did mac and cheese and a shared veggie plate for them! For myself, I had cheese, crackers and fruit.

Between 1:00-3:00 is when Presley naps, Landon can nap if he wants to or just have quiet time. This is when I get my work done or do some work around the house! For my afternoon snack I had an apple and peanut butter.

From 3:00-4:00 after the kids get up, they will do playtime and I will finish up chores or get dinner ready!

Butternut squash pasta

INGREDIENTS

  • Blue cheese crumbles
  • 1 small handful Basil
  • 1 lb Butternut squash
  • 2 tbsp chopped Garlic
  • 1/2 tsp Oregano, dried
  • 14 oz Penne pasta
  • 1/2 tsp Paprika
  • 1 Salt and pepper
  • 1 tbsp Olive oil
  • 2 tbsp Heavy cream
  • 1/4 cup Parmesan
  • 1 lbs Bacon

DIRECTIONS

  • Pre-heat the oven to 350F.
  • Cut the skin off the butternut squash and cut into medium-sized cubes. Place on a baking tray with the garlic. Sprinkle over the oregano, paprika and a pinch of salt and pepper. 
  • Add the olive oil and rub over the squash with your hands so the squash and garlic are evenly coated in the spices. Roast in the oven for around 30 minutes until the squash and garlic are soft, toss halfway through.
  • After 20 minutes of roasting the squash bring a large pot of salted water to the boil. Add the penne and cook according to instructions until al dente, drain. Tip: Reserve 1-2 cups of pasta water before draining, see notes.
  • Once the squash is cooked, place in a food processor. Add cream and parmesan. Blitz until smooth and creamy. Add extra salt if required.
  • Add the sauce to the drained pot you cooked the pasta in or a clean skillet and add 1 cup pasta water, stir to combine to thin out the sauce. If it’s still too thick add more until you reach the desired consistency.
  • Add the cooked penne and toss until evenly coated in the sauce. Serve with torn basil leaves.

For dessert we did an easy caramel apple dip!

INGREDIENTS

  • 8 ounces cream cheese 
  • 1/2 cup (or more) caramel sauce (homemade or store-bought) 
  • 1/2 cup (or more) toffee bits
  • Sliced apples, pears, pretzels for serving (at least 4-5 apples)

DIRECTIONS

  • Place cream cheese on a serving dish. If you’d like, shape into a round and indent in the center to hold more caramel. Pour as much caramel sauce as you want evenly over cream cheese. Sprinkle with a generous helping of toffee bits.
  • Serve with sliced apples, pears, or pretzels.

After dinner around 7:00 we’ll start cleaning up and get the kiddos ready for bed. Once that is all done is usually when Adam and I will have some quiet time or I will go on my walk!
