Back-To-School Week Of Reviews And Giveaways!
I don’t usually use planners…
I usually find them very frustrating…
I usually get angry at them because they wind up in charge. Know what I mean?
My day slowly starts to become ruled by the planner… we MUST do this today… the planner says so!
Then I would feel guilty because we DIDN’T do everything the planner said to do that day! What kind of teacher was I?
I always seem to forget that I am the one that filled the thing out to begin with!
Then to find out I can only do ONE thing with it… What mom needs something that only does one thing?
So I gave up…
I received this beautiful planner for my home school. From Day 1, I have been in love. Not only is it pretty, it’s functional! This planner includes monthly calendars, weekly calendars, a Bible Reading list, room to schedule up to 4 childrens school day, their chore lists, mom’s chore list, grocery shopping lists, menu space, report cards, budget planning pages, encouraging devotionals for mom at the beginning of every month and MORE!! It’s also pretty.
You would think that something that does this many things would be the size of several encyclopedia books and weigh a ton! It’s the size of a NOTEBOOK!! Seriously. I can slip it in my diaper bag, my purse, my teacher binder. It goes everywhere I go. There is even a planner that is smaller!
The same day I received it I also received some valuable advice from a dear friend.
She told me that she uses hers to write down what WAS accomplished each day. She fills in what she knows HAS to be done, such as doctor appointments, the menu etc, and then the rest comes along as it gets done! She can then look back at the end of the day and say “WOW, we did alot!” instead of “we didn’t do that, or that, or even that”! What a great mind easing idea! I filled in the first week just so you could see about what we do, and how much information you can put in it!
As you can see, it’s pretty full! Remember I am homeschooling FIVE kids. I managed to get ALL their lessons on there! And there is still some room! There is also the weeks menu, a weekly catechism lesson, schedule for the weekend and a spot to write Weekly Priorities. I added in there, Teach Juice Box the Days of the Week and Little Man the Months of The Year, and to teach them ALL 10 new Spanish words. All things that we needed to get done this week, but weren’t really a planned lesson because we learn them as we do other things, such as play with blocks or just singing a song. Or I point at something and say what it is in Spanish and for the rest of the day, if someone sees it, the first to call out the Spanish word wins.
All that to say..
If you home school and need some help organizing your day…
THIS is the planner for you!
I know I won’t be caught without it ever again!
