I have 4 kids, 3 of which are in school. I needed an easy way to set out lesson plans for them and let them know what they are expected to do. I wanted to keep some sort of record that I could file also. I found these planners at the Dollar Tree and it totally fit the bill!
It is great because once a week (Sunday night usually) I enter in all their assignments and anything going on for the week into their own planners. Then I can adjust their math is they worked ahead or fell behind without screwing up an entire year’s worth of lesson plan.
Then they can refer to it to see what work they have to do. They can also pop it into their backpacks when they go do work at church independently or just see about that playdate or when Awana starts. They mark off their assignments after they are finished and graded. That is it! So simple!
