Organize your Home and Homeschool with this Loop Scheduling Workshop

Are you allergic to planning and schedules like I am?

I have been through a number of planners and calendars over the last decade, promising from one year to the next that I am going to “get my act together,” only to see my neat little plans unravel before my very eyes.

It leaves a mom feeling totally discouraged. Can you relate?

I tried a new planning method this year called Loop Scheduling and it has rocked my world. This is the schedule for the mom who hates schedules.

Organize your Home and Homeschool with this Loop Scheduling WorkshopWhat is Loop Scheduling?

At the beginning of the 2017 homeschool year, I took a webinar from my good friend Tauna over at The Proverbial Homemaker. Tauna is a busy stay-at-home, work-from-home, homeschooling mom of six littles! In all the chaos of life she figured out how to maintain a unique type of schedule that took the pressure off, but still got things done around the home and in the homeschool room.

When I heard she was sharing her wisdom, I just had to listen in!

Tauna has mastered the art of Loop Scheduling. According to her program, “Loop scheduling helps you manage your work and get more done without being locked into doing certain tasks on certain days. Instead of looking at a calendar or schedule to see what work you have to do that day, you look at a list and see what’s next to do during your regular work time. No more stalling when things don’t go exactly as planned! Instead, pick up where you left off!”

How awesome is that?! Now do you understand why I am so excited about it?

I immediately signed up for her Loop Scheduling Workshop and learned how to tackle my to-do list in a way that wasn’t intimidating. Instead, the loop scheduling method just made sense. It really is a no-fuss, flexible method to getting more done with less frustration, and that’s what we all need, right?

Loop Scheduling is the planning method to a happier and more organized you – if you are the type of gal, like me, who just can’t seem to fit it all in no matter how hard she tries!

What Does the Workshop Include?

  • Homeschooling
  • And more!

The Loop Scheduling Toolkit

With your purchase you will also be provided with a set of printables you can use again and again to create your loop schedules.

You can see my FUN Day Friday Loop that I created above to use in our homeschool!

I love the templates that are included in the workshop for download. This image includes just one of the chore chart templates that I received. The badge design was perfect for my son who loves policemen.

Because my son is 6 years old and doesn’t read fluently yet, I decided to draw little pictures on his chore chart for him to help in directing him to the next task. He loved it!

Using the chore loop templates provided, I created one for each of my four oldest children and hung them using clip boards in a central area to our home. This kept us all on task for the day.

These resources alongside the videos and printable guide provided in the Loop Scheduling Workshop are really a practical toolkit to walk you through the process of creating and implementing your loop schedules in everyday life.

Loop Scheduling Support

Tauna guarantees that by using this method you will get more done with less frustration:

Instead of being frustrated by strict schedules that fall apart, or wondering what to do when the activity for the assigned day of the week doesn’t get done, you’ll simply use your task loops and keep making progress!

Even if you don’t feel like you quite have a grasp on the method of looping after you complete the video series or feel like you are seeing the progress you desire, you can join the Loop Schedule Workshop private support group on Facebook.

Here you will find community and receive extra tips and encouragement to guide you through the process. Others share their loops and creative ideas, which I found really helpful in getting my own creative juices flowing.

    • Yes! It totally is. We have our history, science, and writing on a loop for our homeschool schedule because I can never fit it all into one day.

  1. I love this idea of loop scheduling and think it might be just what I need to stay on track. Thank you for offering the giveaway!

  2. I think this sounds like it might work for me! I always get side-tracked with our scheduling when the kids ask questions and want to know stuff that’s not on the schedule haha.
    Thank you for the introduction and review of this style. xoxo

    • Oh I totally get the questions issue! My near 8 year old is a TALKER and she is so curious. I love to encourage her curiosity but at the same time it does get us off track. Loop scheduling is definitely helpful in that area. I am so glad you found the review and giveaway helpful!

  3. I’ve read about/heard of loop scheduling and it seems like such a great idea… I really should give it a try. It might help alleviate some of the stress of scheduling and feeling perpetually behind.

    • That’s exactly what it does. I always felt “perpetually behind” like you mentioned, but loop scheduling really helps you get something done if not more done because you are actually seeing more productivity.

  4. Loop scheduling seems so practical. I love the idea of doing certain things on certain days, but I have never been able to get that to work!

    • I think any new schedule takes some discipline, and I have definitely struggled with that. I just found this method to be the easiest because if you do “get behind” you literally just pick up on the loop where you are at and there’s no reworking anything … no scratch marks in the calendar or not knowing where to start again.

  5. I’ve discovered a little bit about loop scheduling from the Read, Pray, Love Bible study kit, as that’s what’s in the prayer section. It has been quite effective for me for prayer, and I’d like to know more about using loop scheduling for our homeschool.

  6. I have a son who has ADHD and so needs some form of regularity. A schedule is not working for me, because although I have add, I can’t stick to a daily plan. I’m hoping this is something that will fit us both!

  7. I did Loop Scheduling years ago, when it first came out, and it worked well for us but I got lazy and we stopped. I think I need to get back to it and work it again.

  8. This intrigues me; I feel like we are always behind in something yet the idea of not doing all things every day is a bit scary. My brain is telling me this would make me even further behind even though so many people say it will help you NOT be behind. I’d be willing to give it a try though!

  9. I have been homeschooling for 15 years now and we have never tried loop scheduling. We have (somehow) all ready finished science & history for the year and want to try some new things this next semester and loop scheduling would be fun to add in to that mix.

  10. I would love to learn more about this! We are starting a new way of tracking completion of chores & may like to incorporate this method. I can see how it would be helpful to me personally as well. I can never keep up with everything that needs to get done!

  11. I’ve actually kind of figured this concept out for myself in the past (out of necessity since I also am a homeschooling mom of 6) and then loved finding the term “Loop Scheduling” when Tauna shared about it in her blog once. But I still have so much trouble actually utilizing my lists in everyday spots. Or keeping them visible. Or not just putting out fires!! Learning more from her would be awesome!!

  12. I’ve heard of this concept before, but never implemented it even though I think it will really help. I volunteer a few different places, so my weeks are not typically the same and I have different days and times to accomplish tasks at home.

  13. I am looking forward to making changes and getting things accomplished this year, this sounds like something that can help me!

  14. Ive never heard of loop scheduling but i am eager to get details. If this helps me get more time in my day I am more than excited about it

  15. I have tried every planning method out there, regular monthly, weekly, daily planners, bullet journaling, etc. after a week maybe two it just becomes one more thing to do I typically just go back to a list, so this sounds like it is exactly what I need!!
