Papers flying, workbooks getting lost under beds, lists on loose papers finding their way to the trash can, assignments covered in coffee or food, books stacked high and unorganized, lesson plans that don’t seem as productive as I need them to be. Total chaos! I cannot function when there’s massive chaos.
It can get pretty crazy when trying organize everything for our homeschool days. From day one, I have struggled to be productive if I didn’t have an organization plan. Those of you that can successfully fly by the seat of your pants amaze me!! I need to learn a little from you, to help loosen me up!! I’m wound tight, I can’t help it.🤦🏼♀️🤷🏼♀️
Because of my need for organization, a few years ago I came up with a plan that will serve my family well, hopefully until my children graduate from high school. My goal in starting this, was to help my children learn to balance their work and to eventually learn to manage (good time management) their work on their own. I also needed a plan that would help me stay organized until they reached that point.
What I came up with is not rocket science and it is not something new, in fact I know others probably do the same thing. I simply created a chart in a Word document, added mini boxes, space for a date, and added subject headings. Viola! I have an assignment sheet that is easy for everyone to use.
I would love to share this printout with you if you’re interested, click the link in my profile.
