What Can Homeschoolers Do All Day?

With a nod to Richard Scarry’s, WHAT DO PEOPLE DO ALL DAY, we offer this possible schedule for keeping homeschoolers busy. These ideas come from education thought leader Tim Elmore. Elmore’s no-profit, Growing Leaders, offers leadership skills for students as well as teachers, parents, and coaches. Click here to see a bigger version of this picture.

Heather Murphy Capps has always had a deep appreciation for comfort and elegance. She and Claudia would have run out of money quickly together but would absolutely have been on the same page about taxis and nice restaurants. And of course, solving mysteries about beautiful art. That said, Heather also appreciates Jamie’s love of complication, which is why she spent several years living in rural Kenya and then became a television news reporter, which involved standing for hours in the middle of hurricanes and political battles. Now she’s raising middle-grade readers and writing for them. She loves to read and write books with lots of great science, magic, mystery, and adventure. Heather is the communications coordinator for Mixed-Up Files, as well as creator/curator for our We Need Diverse MG series. She is committed to creating more diversity in publishing.
  1. Great resources! Thanks for your generosity.☺️

    • Thank you so much for reading, and stay safe and healthy!

  2. You need to show the chart bigger so it can be read. There are not enough pixels in the image to make it readable even when magnified.

    • Thank you for your feedback. I will post a link so that people can open the chart on their own devices, as I can’t expand it anymore without blowing out the image. We appreciate your reading us at Mixed-Up Files!
