What’s Included?

1).  A Student Checklist

I use this checklist for my oldest daughter, and somewhat for my younger.  It is divided into segments that correlates with my daily schedule.  As the girls get older I strive to teach more independence.  I also include daily chores so I can see what has been accomplished at a glance.  I simply mark through subjects that we will be skipping.

2).  Weekly Planning Sheet

My weekly planning sheet is what I use to keep on track.  I like to keep my meals, to do lists, and materials list all in the same place.  It makes it easy for me to see what is on the agenda for a week.  I plan for one week at a time (at the most two), so I don’t set myself up for failure.  Anything longer than that and we have problems keeping up when life happens.

3).  Theme Unit Planner

My theme unit planner is what I use if I am planning a specific theme.  I especially like to do these type of units in the younger years.  This sheet simply allows me to keep all my ideas in one place, so I can easily plan.

4).  Yearly Planner

Now that we are using BJU for our core subjects we actually have a video log that keeps us all on task.  Before this, I used a yearly log.  I like to see my assignments all in one place, so it’s easy to plan.  I would set up the assignments at the beginning of the year.  This is the only long-term planning that I do, and it’s simply because I don’t ever break up our reading assignments from our worksheet assignments, so I know these won’t change.
