Flexible Homeschool Lesson Plans For Interest-Led Learning {week 17 recap}

I am sharing our weekly, interest-led learning lesson plans, as well as a recap of our prior homeschool week, every single week in 2022. This is Week 17.

This past week was a busy one. My son had a rock climbing competition (only his second one ever) and prom (only my second one ever).

We don’t get out much, so this was a huge week for us. Between tux fittings and four hour car trips, my son and I were exhausted by Saturday. Exhausted, but happy and satisfied.

One of things I love most about homeschooling is how flexible we can be with school, all while living life. Sometimes, in our homeschool, this flexibility is necessary because of medical needs. Last week, we needed it to be able to enjoy the wonderful opportunities my son is now healthy enough to take advantage of.

This flexibility often means less formal lessons, but always means more of living the life that we have been given.

Here is what our flexible homeschool lessons looked like last week.

Our Homeschool Lesson Plans For This Week

Monday

  • Physical Therapy – 2 hours

Reference Notes: Every Monday, my son has subcutaneous immunoglobin infusions. This means we typically keep learning to a minumum.

  • Drivers Ed Online
  • Everyday Math Word Problems
  • Jamestown – American History
  • YouTube Video – His choice, something educational
  • Online Voice/Music Lesson – one hour
  • Current Events Discussion – read and discuss various news reports
