A Day in the Life of a K12 Student
What does a day in the life of a K12 student look like? It could start off with an interactive learning activity before jumping into an online lesson followed by homework and then football practice. It’s different for everyone, but we wanted to show you what a day could look like. To get a better idea, you can take a look at Marcus’ daily routine. You’ll see how his day is flexible, allowing him to fit in his lessons, homework, and seeing friends. Marcus excels history and science but struggles in language arts. But thanks to his Individualized Learning Plan, he is able to learn at the pace that works for him in all subjects. Take a look!
You can also check out some tips for scheduling your day. Some of the tips include:
- Make lists, including a weekly schedule for kids detailing what they need to accomplish.
- Establish a start time and allow time for morning routines and breakfast.
- Shake things up occasionally. Take a field trip, play educational games, or watch a nature documentary.
A K12 education is designed to be flexible, so your daily schedule can be unique to your family’s needs and priorities.
