Sample Daily Schedule
One aspect of virtual elementary school is that there often is no typical day. Flexible scheduling and self-pacing allow students and learning coaches to craft each day, week or project to reflect the student’s needs and interests. If a student is struggling with a math concept, there is no need to stop the lesson and move on. Some students and learning coaches find they complete all of the day’s schoolwork before lunch, leaving afternoons free for additional learning projects, sports, clubs, music lessons or other activities.
Still, it’s helpful for parents and students to see what a day in the life of an online elementary might look like. Here is an idea of how an online school day might be structured for a typical third-grade student.
