Here’s one of the realities of home education: It won’t go exactly as planned. (Sort of like life.)

In order to stay sane, you need to prioritize your student’s activities. That way, when you have a bad day, get sick, go through a family emergency, travel, or find yourself with a houseful of inlaws, you know what subjects to complete–and which ones to allow to drop off the list.

Every family has its own priority list, but here’s our suggestion:

  1. Sleep. No matter what else happens, students should get plenty of sleep–particularly in high school.
  2. Exercise. Bodies that don’t move can’t think well.
  3. Math and language arts. These are absolutely vital to all other areas of achievement.
  4. History and science.
  5. Non-core subjects.
