As homeschool families, we all begin and end at different times of the year. In our home, for instance, the “year” runs [roughly] August to August.
Most of my major planning occurs in July (read how I do it HERE). Then, I use a variety of planning systems to track smaller items and keep things running smoothly from day to day.
At planning time, I often develop new forms I can use to streamline what we do.
Apparently, lots of other people do, too!
A few minutes of visiting friends’ blogs and web sites, combined with a little prodding to hear what others were up to, and I was quickly able to produce a list a mile long (almost).
Not only is it fun to print and use these planners and tracking sheets, but you’ll get many new ideas seeing how others do it in their homes!
Grab a cup of coffee, tea or your favorite green smoothie and pull up a chair. You’ll be here a little while.
Might want to check for ink and paper in the printer, too…
For starters, some of the forms I have to share with you:
My household binder is available free HERE for download.
My high school planning map (a 4-year plan) is available free HERE.
[I do have a curriculum and lesson system and a high school planning system. Neither is free, but are available inexpensively in our bookstore.]
My blogging friends have shared some of their fantastic & free planning pages with me:
