American History Curriculum Daily Schedule


Here is a daily schedule to go along with American History Year One for those who prefer having everything laid out day-by-day (rather than by "topic").

Please keep in mine this schedule is only SUGGESTED daily guidance; it isn't intended to "rule" you! We are very "involved" homeschoolers and our pace might be too rigorous (or who knows, maybe not enough) for you!

You are always free to leave out activities or add things in (we do)!

I have recently made it so the daily schedule can "stand alone" from our topic pages. You no longer need to visit our topic pages for notes, websites, etc. Everything you need is included on each weekly schedule page.

Thanks to those of you who wrote and let me know you will be using our history curriculum this year. We've now finished up our schedule just for you!

Please feel free to tweak or combine with another curriculum, etc. You can also pick and choose weeks for smaller "unit" studies. A red asterisk next to a week is a stopping point if you wish to use various other popular history programs next year. See the notes below the table.

Click here to see a "quick" bare-bones overview of the books and materials used for this year on a week-by-week basis.

*Now Available*: A printable PDF document and an editable Word document of our entire American history curriculum with our daily schedule included.
