I have a son who IS a planner, who LIKES having things written out... and the thought of having blocks to cross off actually DELIGHTS him.
Guess what I am learning to do?
YUP... use a planner (even though I'm kicking and screaming all the way). :)
Okay... so perhaps I'm not screaming. :) Seriously I'm not.
What I have before me is a coil bound book that opens flat, can be folded back upon itself without damage and with large blocks to write in, and lists. All kinds of ways of doing your planning.. my son is delighted.
- Three years of calendars.
- Monthly calendars starting with July 2016 running through June 2017.
- Hey Mama! Letters of encouragement.
- Weekly planners
- Monthly Goals
- Semester Goals
- Yearly Goals
- Attendance Records (180 check mark boxes where required)
- Books read
- Curriculum planning sheet
- Homeschooling Contact List
- Then you get lists for: writing prompts and story starters, list of the presidents, inventions, USA government, USA States and Capitals.
- Helps with creating a transcript.
- The planner closes with a list for other courses taken.
What Do I Like?
As a Canadian I would like to see a broader focus to the information pages. I would LOVE to see the stateside specific information be left out and more generic information be put in like.. weights and measurements, notable people in history, maps to world, different types of government and such like. It would provide a broader feel to the planner and would be good information for all people, regardless of where they live, to have on hand.
With that said, the TOS crew has been busy working through the planner and they have lots of say about it.. Check them out below.
