YMB #37 Loops, Blocks, and Other Schedule Options for Morning Time


Learning about loop scheduling five years ago was one of the best things that ever happened to my homeschool. Suddenly I was able to schedule my day in such a way that I never stressed about missing a day in the schedule. Other times, I have used block schedules with much success in my Morning Time to be able to enjoy more subjects in a year.

Both types of scheduling are handy and have benefits. Both types also inspire tons of questions from listeners. So today Dawn and I are happy to bring you a podcast all about blocks, loops, and other schedule options for your Morning Time. Enjoy!

    We use the CM method and I am trying Sarah MacKenzie’s method this year! I was so relieved when I heard her talking about it in your podcast.

  • Lindsey says:

    Where are Dawn’s crazy whatchamacallit plans? Am I missing them? 🙂

  • Trisha says:

    There’s so much great info in these podcasts, I have to go to the show notes every time. Is it possible to link in the Full Description on the podcast app?

  • Ashley Ramsey says:

    I’ve tried every spelling of 30PAM for the code for the toys and it isn’t valid. Can you write the code?

  • Deyna says:

    To all potential friends and fans of Lauri toys, profound apologies from Lauri.
    The 30PAM Amazon discount goes live Friday, September 1. Please hang in there
    ’till Friday. We can’t wait to hear what you think of our toys!

    • Shannon says:

      Wonderful! Thank you!

    • Raquel says:

      Thanks, I just tried it and wondered why it didn’t work 🙂

      • Deyna says:

        Again, our sincere apologies for any frustration! Please try our Lauri toys tomorrow on Amazon with 30PAM code! Big hugs from all at Lauri!!!

        • Shannon says:

          No worries Deyna 🙂 I tried the discount this morning and it didn’t work. Is it only on certain toys or Amazon sellers? I tried it on an item sold/shipped by Amazon. Thanks!

        • Raquel says:

          Is the coupon code still valid as of today (September 13th)? I ordered one item on September 1st as I wasn’t sure if my son would like the peg board stacker. Turns out he does! The pegs and board are very sturdy and the plastic doesn’t have a cheap feel at all. So I went to order a couple more items today and tried the coupon code again but it says the coupon code is invalid. Can it only be used once on each individual Amazon account? If I had known that, I would have ordered more the first time around 🙁

  • Abby Wahl says:

    What are the resources that you mentioned with Getting Started with Latin? I’ve had the book for a while now… it needs to be dusted off for morning time apparently!

  • Liezel says:

    You ladies are awesome! Thanks so much

  • Steph says:

    Love your podcasts! I was binge listening this week. 🙂 Which leads me to a question! I tried to enter the coupon code 30PAM at checkout on amazon after putting a Lauri stacker set in my cart, but it’s telling me the code is invalid. Was it a limited time code? I cannot see any dates on the podcasts….so maybe this episode is quite old. Just thought I’d check in–we love Lauri products!

    • Dawn Garrett says:

      Hey Steph, I think that code expired in November. So sorry about that. Dawn

  • Elizabeth says:

    Is the Big Basket coming back into stock? It says its out of stock right now.
