My son is in the 6th grade and every year the school gives him an agenda book to write down his homework assignments. While going through his book I thought…this would be a great way for me to plan out my daughter’s weekly lessons. I looked on the planner for the brand name and there was the website to order. The bummer was you had to order 50 planners in order to make a purchase.
So, I called his school and asked did they have extra agenda books for sale and sure enough they had them in stock to purchase for $5.
How I use it: Since the book is created to record homework assignments, I use it to record her lessons for the subjects we work on for the day and I schedule them for the entire week a week ahead of time. I always give myself room for change of plans because life happens. Also, if she’s doing really well on a specific letter or numbers, I move along in order to avoid boring her.
For instance…subjects listed are:
Reading and Writing: Practice writing letter C, Create the letter C out of fruit loops or pom poms, Work with alphabet flashcards, Practice 10 site words.
Math: #Study numbers 1-5, continue practice writing #2, work with number flashcards.
Social Studies: Study US Presidents 1-5
Other Subjects: Ballet today at 5:30
The planner is also a great resource because of the map, U.S Presidents listed, Solar System, Multiplication & Division Table and so much more right at my finger tips. Of course some of the things may be a bit advanced, however introducing her to them never hurts.
Those of you know about my planner addiction this planner is nothing, but another fix for me.
