    Are there recommendations for how long a child should spend on individual subjects each day as well as how long they should spend total on schooling each day? Recommendations for different ages would be great. I have seen conflicting information on the internet about how long children should spend on schoolwork each day, and would love to know what The Good and the Beautiful recommends.

      Hi Mariah! Welcome! First of all, we recommend that you determine what is required by your state. Different states have different standards as far as hours, days, weeks, etc. that students need to fulfill each school year. After that for younger children and lower level courses, we recommend that you follow your child’s lead. If you notice that your child is less able to focus or is starting to get fatigued, we recommend pausing the lesson for the day and resuming the next day. For upper level courses, we recommend that you work with the child to determine what is a good length of time to work on the lesson. Some lessons may take more than one day and some lessons may take less time and can be completed in one day. Because each child is different, we don’t offer concrete examples of how long to work on a lesson. Also, younger children will have fewer subjects to work on while older children will have more subjects, so a younger child will need less time for school than their older sibling.

  • Keeley

    In my state,Georgia, it is required that students attend 180 days per year. How is this requirement met utilizing the good and the Beautiful curriculum?

      Thank you for your interest, Keeley! As we are not a school and do not coordinate our curriculum to specific state standards, we unfortunately are not able to provide personalized guidance for meeting state requirements or requirements of certain programs. We do offer all of our K-8 Language Arts and Math K-6 curriculum for free on our site. This is a helpful way to find which lessons would meet any requirements and plan out your schedule.

      We hope these resources are helpful as you work to fulfill any program requirements your state is seeking. Have a fantastic school year!
