For planning, I am using A Simple Plan planner by Mardel for the 3rd year in a row. This year I got the kids each a planner by A Plan In Place. Aidan's helps him learn about the calendar and checking off school work, along with chores. Abigail's helps her learn about goals, scheduling, along with tracking books read and to do lists. This is a planner geek's dream!! Now let's see how the kids like them. I know Abigail is excited, she is excited to start using her the planner. With planning, I don't schedule the year, I count out the weeks we plan to do school and add two additional at the end in case more breaks are needed. We are trying the 6 weeks on, 1 week off type of schedule, with a two week break in December and 2 month summer break. I wanted to try year round schooling, but Abigail keeps busy with golf the months of June and July, there are many summer camps and activities. Plus I need a break, time to organize and plan and get caught up on other things that sometimes get pushed aside during the school year.
So this post probably bored most my readers, unless you are a homeschooler, well you may enjoyed it. I enjoy reading what other homeschoolers are using and doing, it helps me to see if there is something different we might like to try or use.
