Planning & Schedules

  Homeschooling families need to incorporate kids and education into everything we do.  A homeschooling life is one that can require that you attend to many things at the same time; academics, classes, sports, meals, cleaning, administration, child care, etc. 

 

Doing that well, often requires some planning. Here are some tools that may help you get started.  None of the tools here will work perfectly for your unique family.  You will likely need to tweak them to fit your unique family or simply use them as inspiration for creating your own systems.

This is a fun worksheet designed to celebrate learning in all its forms. Homeschooled kids often spend their days learning in natural, interest-driven ways. They have time to pursue their passions and this worksheet gives you a way to track of this type of student-led learning.  It can be comforting on those days when you're not getting much of the academic work done, to see that they learned in many other ways.  This worksheet also works well for unschooling families who want to keep track of and support the pursuits of their kids.
