If you are new to loop scheduling, then you are in for a major treat! This is a flexible way to plan out your homeschool subjects without having to schedule them into set days of the week.
You simply put what you want to cover on a list and rotate or “loop” through the list. We have a daily list, and two loops we circle through. Here’s a full post for you on how to make a loop schedule and what it is.
If something comes up and you don’t do spelling on Wednesday, you don’t have to cram it in or wait till next week. Simply do spelling tomorrow as the next thing on the loop!
What you get with this printable:
You will receive a PDF digital download (no physical product) containing 4 variations of my blank loop schedule.
How I use this loop schedule
I like using two mini loops as part of our daily work. One mini loop contains things I’d like to get to once a week or so, which I named “Weekly loop”.
My second mini loop is a list of workbooks/games/poems I have that I want to get to, but needed a plan to rotate them in regularly. So I put them on a loop and aim for 1 each day.
So 4 days a week I aim to cover these topics with my 1st grader: Spoiler alert, it doesn’t always happen, and that’s OK too.

Thank you so much for this! It's the best explanation I've seen of how to combine loops. I've been fretting over how to get everything in given our need for a flexible, four-day schedule. Just incredibly helpful!
