My twins are in 4th grade, and we are on Creation to The Greeks in the MFW family cycle.

OUR DAILY ROUTINE
We sit on our couch, or do experiments in the kitchen for most of the together time subjects. If one of these subjects has a notebook page, I send the boys to their desk to finish it, then it is stored in their History workbox.
- History Reading, Activities, & Note booking
- Science & experiments
- Root Words

We use a 10-Drawer Organizer Cart for our workboxes. They have lasted for 3 years, and we love them. In years past, I have put a tag into each workbox to tell the boys what to do but this I wanted a more streamlined approach. We now have been using one daily agenda board (pictured below). They now function as storage for each child's notebooks & past work, and direction on the order in which they should do each subject.
Each child has their subjects in different order to allow one-on-one time with Mom during Math and Language Arts.
2. Root Words- We use a worksheet for derivative sentences, found in CttG facebook page file section.
3. English- Language Lessons for Today, Grade 4- Do with Mom
4. Art- Draw and Write Through History * We use this instead of recommended art of God and History, it allows more independent art time. Click link for printable schedule.
5. Spelling- Spelling By Sound and Structure Grade 4 * We choose this curriculum instead of because it is more independent work than suggested Spelling Power. There is also a TEN MINUTE BREAK card, usually in Box 5.
6. Writing- Writing Stands, Level 3*
7. Math-Math U See* -Do with Mom
8. Typing- We use Typing.com. Each boys does 3 to 5 screens a day.
9. Spanish- DuoLingo for now, but adding Rosetta Stone soon.
10. Piano- We use Hoffman Academy, if there is a video to watch, it is on the Agenda Board. I they have a music worksheet to do, it is in their box.
- Reading- Read for at least 20 minutes from Book Basket. My kids are book worms, so I don't have to remind them much to read, but I do check to make sure they are reading from Book Basket.
- Daily Chores-All chores must be done before screen time
- Read-Alouds are done as Bedtime story with Dad
