I know I said earlier that I am not much of a planner. I am working on balancing that with planning to allow for a smooth week each time a new week comes around. (Why is it that it happens so often!?!) I want to learn to use my planner better. It is so pretty and cheerful and full of encouragement. It deserves to be used, right? Just look at it!
I am working on it and part of my goal in planning is to set out a generic weekly plan that we can follow most weeks. So, in the hopes of following it better, I am sharing it with you. This is what I have planned out as a generic week.
Another way in which I am working on my planning is by having E, the oldest giggly girl, become more independent in completing the work that she can do on her own. We are in the process of reviewing My Student Logbook and she going to be using it. We are just now getting it set up and will begin using it next week, as we being our new school year. Look for our review of it in mid-September. Already, though, I am liking it and considering purchasing the PDF for the middle giggly girl.
Maybe someone has a suggestion to help me. Here’s my struggle: I enjoy all of the pieces of curriculum that we have chosen and they all seem to be things that are set up to do on a daily basis. Or, at least, they work best being reviewed on a daily basis. But, I don’t want to drive the girls. I want to have a relaxed, fun educational experience. How do you balance that? If you can, please share your weekly schedule with me so I can get some ideas. Thanks.
Meanwhile, this is what we are going to start out with. At Home.
