Just a quick post to let you know I’ve added a few new documents to the downloads page. These are pages I’ve created for myself this year and post them here in case they are useful to any of you other homeschoolers in cyberspace.
I quickly found out that I needed a sheet for tracking books I have borrowed from or loaned to others. That’s what this sheet is for…pretty self-explanatory.
Next up is an individual reading log. I have a much more detailed reading log available in my collection of planner pages on the downloads page which I use for books that we read together as a family for our core subjects like History, Geography, Bible, and so on. But I find it easier to have a simpler reading log like this one for each child’s individual reading (literature they read for Language Arts and free reads, various books from the library…that sort of thing). “IR” means it is an “Independent Read”. “RA” means it was “Read Aloud” to them (this would be literature selections read especially to younger students who are just learning to read).
Lastly, for today, is the checklist format I have decided to go with this year for my planning binder. It’s with a twinge of sadness I bid farewell to the two page spread that covered a term’s worth of weekly checklists! Here’s a peek at how that worked last year…
These pages are for a 4 day schedule, one day per page, with space to enter different subjects for each of three students. The few lines at the top would be for “circle time” or group subjects covered that day. I’ll print Days 1 and 2 facing each other…then the same for Days 3 and 4 on the next facing pages.
So, there you have it. A few more things to add to the collection. Out with the old, in with the new! We’ll see how this works for Term 1 at least.
