At the beginning of each school semester, I type a daily work checklist for each child. I tried to copy and paste one of the checklists from Microsoft Office, but the lines that make it look like a table did not transfer. On the actual checklist there is a box under each day of the week for each subject. On the days that Jimmy is off I type the word off in the box at the top. They know that this means no school assignments for that day. On this particular week, Jimmy was not actually off Monday and Tuesday, we just will not resume school after our Christmas break until today. As the child completes each subject, he checks off that box. For most subjects like math and grammar, they just do the next page or lesson. For subjects that have more detailed daily instructions, they follow a list in that subject's section in their notebook...like for writing, it will detail each day's assignment. The checklist listed below is located in the front of their notebooks. I can usually fit 3-4 weeks on one page.
I like to look at other mother's lists and schedules--that is how I get my ideas! I hope my ideas and descriptions of how I do things at my house helps you!
