For the past few years of homeschooling, I have been writing out Isabelle's daily assignments in a binder for her. Each day I would write out all of the subjects she was doing for that day and underneath each one I would list the specific assignments. I would draw a little checkmark square next to each assignment so that she could mark things off as she went. This always felt way too tedious though.
So this year I finally got smart and created forms on our computer. Because some of her subjects rotate and she only does them on certain days of the week, I created one sheet for each day of the week. I included each subject with lines and little bulleted boxes underneath to write in all of the daily assignments.I printed off 10 weeks worth of sheets (we are splitting our school year into quarters this year), 3-hole punched them, and put them in Isabelle's binder.
It is such a simple thing, but I already see how it is going to make my life much easier. The time it used to take to write out everything, even though it was only minutes in actuality, was enough to make me put off writing out assignments until the very last minute. Plus, this whole system just feels more streamlined and "official" now. And that definitely works for me!
