For years now I have been using a routine chart that I made with a wet erase whiteboard calendar. I converted it to for work my needs and it is super simple & plain.
I decided to create a beautiful printable routine chart that is based on the same layout, but designed just for this purpose! I use mine for keeping my entire family’s routine summary in one place, but you can break it down into more detail.
Below, you will see several ways to use this homeschool mom’s routine chart. It works for homeschool lessons, kids’ chores, meal planning, and more!
I created this with homeschool moms in mind, but I know that if you are a homeschool mom, you are usually a homemaker as well. Often, you may be a working mom (from home or outside of the home), so I made this easy to customize for all of your needs.
These routine charts work for all moms and homemakers, so don’t let the label deter you. The routine chart comes in 4 types of layouts – all un-dated, so you can use 1 or all, and use as many as you need for years to come!
You can also laminate the charts you choose and use a dry/wet erase marker! I like to update my routine chart each year.
Okay, let’s get to how I use the routine chart! I am excited to share these with you! Scroll down to get yours!
Example Way To Use The Homeschool Mom’s Routine Chart Printables
How I use it: I list each area that I want to have a routine for down the left side of the chart. For us, this is our meal plan, school lessons, chores, screen time, and my work schedule. (see example chart below)
For our meal plan, I choose themes for each day. I know at a glance which type of meat to defrost, what sides I’ll be prepping, etc.
- Sunday: Big Breakfast & Easy Dinner (grilled meat, leftovers).
- Monday: Mexican-inspired (soft tacos, beef & bean burritos/bowls, etc.).
- Tuesday: Irish-inspired (meat & potatoes like my mom’s upside down shepherd’s pie, meatloaf & oven roasted potatoes, etc.).
- Wednesday: Asian-inspired (chicken & rice, stir-fry, etc.).
- Thursday: SW USA-inspired (chili, taco stuffed baked potatoes, etc.).
- Friday: Italian-inspired (spaghetti, pasta, etc.).
- Saturday: PNW/Comfort Food (Pacific Northwest food like salmon, pasty, or a soup).
For our homeschool routine, I simply put the subjects that we’ll do each day.
- Sunday: Family games, music.
- Monday: Bible, Math, Language Arts, History.
- Tuesday: Bible, Math, Language Arts, Science.
- Wednesday: Bible, Math, Language Arts, History.
- Thursday: Bible, Math, Language Arts, Science.
- Friday: Catch-up Day and art, music, latin, etc.
- Saturday: Dad teaches music, life skills, etc.

For our chores, I list the priority chores to be done each day.
- Sunday: empty garbage & rotate laundry.
- Monday-Thursday: empty garbage, dishes, vacuuming, rotate laundry.
- Friday: regular + scrub bathrooms, floors, windows, etc.
- Saturday: empty garbage, dishes, vacuuming, rotate laundry.
For our screen-time routine, I write in the child’s name/initial on each day they get screen-time. Monday-Friday is when they can play a (non-internet-based) game, work on their creative projects like writing or video editing, etc. Saturday & Sunday is family time, which may include a movie.
For my work schedule, I write the time slots I hope to focus on work each day. I aim for one “power-hour” each afternoon Monday through Thursday and on Saturday. Then I try to work a few more hours on Friday since it is a lighter homeschool day.
