Have you ever wondered if home-schooled students just sit at home and don’t get their deserved education? Let me share with you my schedule for the week and hopefully you can uncover this myth.

My schedule is really busy on Mondays through Thursdays every week. On Mondays, I have art class and school work to do at home. On Tuesdays, I have writing class from 7:30-8:30 a.m and then Spanish class from 9-10:20 a.m. On Wednesdays, I have piano practice from 1:15-2 p.m, and on Thursdays I have Spanish class from 9-10:20 a.m, then I have history class from 12:45-2:10 p.m.

Finally, I have pre-algebra class from 2:10-4 p.m.

This is what my schedule is like every week. Sometimes I get stressed out because of all the work, but I know that I can do it.

My schedule can also be flexible. To be flexible just means that you can make something shift or move smoother than usual.

For an example, maybe I missed a day of art class on Monday afternoon, and I start to panic because I didn’t go. Instead of panicking, I can just make-up a class on a different day of the week.

Or, if I go on a trip to Arizona and I bring my work with me I can do it in the car, airplane, or hotel lobby. Being flexible can work for me or against me depending on the situation.

Finally, my schedule varies. To vary means to change. My schedule varies because my classes, assignments and responsibilities change day by day. Some days my days are not as busy as other days. For example, on Mondays, I am at home most of the day while on Thursdays I am at classes most of the time.

Although, my schedule is busy I am learning time management and self-control. With my schedule being flexible I am learning to adapt to different situations.
