This year was our test year for our 5 year old and our schedule will change next year when Evelyn isn't in pre-school anymore. Right now it's something like this:

MBTP (LA/Science/Social studies theme curriculum) in the morning
Math & Spelling during the little kids nap time
Handwriting while I make dinner - all the kids either work on writing or coloring depending on age.

Pre-school in the morning
Math in the afternoon
German dance class at night

Gymnastics in the AM
Spelling in the afternoon
Handwriting in the evening

Preschool in the AM
Park day/Co op in the afternoon

MBTP in the AM
Math, spelling, handwriting in the afternoon

Saturday is our library day - my favorite day of the week
We do some school work since those are the days both DH And I are home. We tend to save the activities that need one on one instruction or are more involved for the weekends.
We also host an art class once a month where several families come over and we do a project together.

Our schedules are a little unusual - I work from home during normal business hours and DH works second shift. So, he does morning lessons and I do the afternoon/evening time. So far it has worked really well. We spend about 1-2 hours most days doing formal instruction, but most of our activities are incorporated to what we are learning.
