If you downloaded the planner from yesterday's post, you'll be ready to roll with this next challenge.
Wouldn't it be nice to have school all planned and ready to go each week? How much time do you spend each weekend working on school planning?
I remember when I was teaching in public school, I would try to plan 2 weeks at a time. Those weeks always went by so much smoother than weeks where I felt unprepared. I try to implement some of my teaching and classroom management experience into our homeschool whenever applicable. Organizing and planning are just such an occasion.
Let's get started.
hanging file folder system or crate
10 hanging file folders (1 for each week)
10 planning sheets per child
-You'll see that each hanging file folder is labeled week 1-10
-If you have 3 or more kids, you may want to use file folders within each hanging file folder.
-Write in pencil the basic ideas you want to cover that week. For example: Math- Time. Writing- How-paper, Science- Earthquakes
-If you've already purchased or printed the material for these topics, place them behind that week's plan sheet.
-This is also a great time to see what will be needed a few weeks before it's needed rather than the night before. Make a list of what you need and when it is needed.
