Extra Curricular Activities For Homeschoolers

Most of us are probably planning for the new school year...buying curriculum, checking out co-ops, and deciding what extracurricular activities to put our children in.

Each year I'm faced with the same dilemma:  Too many activities and not enough time!  Oh...and overcommitment!!

So looking ahead, below is what Funny Bunny will be participating in during her 5th grade year.

~ Dance ~
Starting in August she will be taking 8 dance classes, 3 days a week, totaling 6.25 hours.  Classes include Broadway, Lyrical, Jazz, Tap, Ballet, two Technique classes, and Company {which includes all of the above and Hip Hop}.  She really enjoys dancing and spending time with her dance friends!

~ Piano ~
One 30-minute lesson once a week.  Funny Bunny has been taking piano for almost 3 years now.

~ Community Bible Study ~
We've been involved with CBS since Funny Bunny was 2 or 3 years old.  It runs from Sept to May and is held every Thursday from 9:30-11:30.  We usually take this day off school since dance is later in the day.

~ Book Clubs ~
She has been involved in an American Girl book club on the first Friday of each month from 10:30 - 12:00 for a couple years now.

This year we are also joining a Narnia book club on the first and third Thursday of each month from 1:00 - 3:00.  Since we already take Thursdays off for CBS, this fits into our schedule perfectly.

~ Church ~
Funny Bunny has recently been attending choir and a girls pre-teen group on Wednesday nights from 6:00 - 7:30.

So as I reflect on our schedule, I think it is doable.  We will be schooling until 3:00 on M, T, W, and F with Thursdays off for CBS and book club.  Four nights a week she either goes to dance/piano or church and enjoys those activities with her friends. 

What does your extracurricular activity schedule look like?
