The block schedule was from our first term. I shared it as an example.
We dropped a couple of books due to time – Winston Churchill bio., Swallows & Amazons, and Book of Marvels (she will read on her on this coming year.)MonicaParticipant
My 11YO is starting 6th grade this fall. We do a memory program similar to Classical Conversations, but aside from that our schedule is as follows:
Math – Teaching Textbooks Pre-Algebra (he started it back in the spring)
History – we’re doing SCM’s Ancient Egypt and all the associated readings; also one entry/week in his timeline book
Geography – DS will be finishing up Geography: A Literature Approach. He has one book left – Seabird.
Science – Noeo Physics II as a family
Language Arts – Bravewriter Arrow/Boomerang selections for dictation, which includes one book per month; continuing to read classic literature as a family at bedtime
Religion – Pflaum Gospel Weeklies, Great Adventure Kids, Young Peacemaker, continue with Scripture memory.
Foreign Language – Rosetta Stone Korean; I’m trying to work out some lessons with his grandmother, who is a native speaker
Music – Children’s Music Journey for piano, guitar lessons with DH
Misc. family studies – Rembrandt (artist study), Handel (composer study), Longfellow (poetry study), Comedy of Errors (Shakespeare), Jack’s Insects, sketching, Nature Friend Magazine (nature study), selected art projects
He’s also staring a Commonplace Book this year.
His day looks like this, with breaks in between each item:
morning chores, breakfast
Math (30 minutes)
Family subjects (about an hour)
Individual work (about an hour)
Independent readings (about thirty minutes)
Lunch (with a history reading)
Afternoons a free for him to finish up anything he has left, extra reading he needs to do, free time with his siblings, outdoor time.2flowerboysParticipant

I’ll have a 6th grader as well. Here are her plans, although I don’t have a final schedule yet:
MUS–daily lessons (we average a MUS lesson per week), finish Gamma (she has a few lessons left), I purchased Deta and Epsilon and hope to get a ways into Epsilon this year.
Copywork–2x/week, may start book of mottoes, but she’s still working on capital cursive letters
Independent reading–daily (usually a chapter)
Our Mother Tongue–may hold off another year on this.
Mystery of History–we’ll be doing some writing with this (they write out a summary on index cards and there are some possile writing assignments). It has 3 lessons per week, but I think we’ll be doing it daily since there is quite a bit each week
106 Days of Creation–scheduled 3x/week, but we’ll probably work on it daily as well…they do best with shorter lessons.
Prima Latina–3-4x/week, we’ll finish mid-year (started in January)
Handicrafts–1-2x/week, Term 1: Future Christian Homemakers (cooking/cleaning lessons), Term 2: Drawing With Children, Term 3: changing lightbulbs, using tools, leathercrafting
Literature–Chronicles of Narnia
Bible–finish Exodus and Numbers commentary from last year, 2-3x/week,
–Daily: Catechism memory, Scripture memory
We aim to hit all the fine arts areas once a week, poetry 3x/week, we’ll be doing a Lewis Carroll poetry study sometime this year
Independent reading books (I’m not sure how many she’ll actually get to): Hittite Warrior, The Bronze Bow, Cat of Bubastes (I’ll read aloud), Cheaper by the Dozen, By the Great Horn Spoon, Just So Stories, The Hobbit, King of the Golden River, Miracles on Maple Hill
