SWR Schedule

I've had a few requests for my SWR schedule lately, so I thought I'd post it for everyone.

We don't follow it exactly. I try to get all of the activities done during the week, but it doesn't always happen and I often switch what's going on day-to-day. The schedule's more to keep me on track. SWR isn't just about dictating words on Monday and testing them on Friday. What happens in between is equally as or even more important.

To create this schedule, I basically took the example in the SWR book for first graders and extended it twice as long since we're only doing 10 words/week instead of 20. I had to add some extra enrichments to fill in every other week. Between the game package I bought, the WISE Guide, and the SWR Yahoo group, there are plenty of enrichments for me to fill our schedule.

Thanks for posting this! This has helped me see the process of SWR fleshed out. I just ordered my SWR kit and will be planning the next few weeks to start with my oldest boy. I have 3 boys also, around the age of yours. It's so encouraging to see other moms who are being faithful and consistent in teaching their children and training them up in the way of the Lord! Thanks!

Ashley, I'm so glad that it helped you. That's exactly why I posted it...no need for anyone to reinvent the wheel. It is really fun and rewarding teaching my boys. I hope you like SWR as much as I have. Let me know if you have any questions. I'm not an expert, but I've learned a lot this year. :)
