This was my project today. The file drawer where I keep the kids’ school records, tests to take, and tests already taken. Master copies of various styles of chore charts also live here.
For at least 5 months of this school year, we’ve been sort of flying by the seat of our pants as far as school goes. When the school year started, we had a schedule, a plan, a routine. Kevin had a regular work schedule. The schedule was somewhat secure.
Then, the campaign started, so the schedule was harder to adhere to. School work was done, but I wasn’t always there to help, or a school day was interrupted. Some might argue that with homeschooling, you can have a flexible schedule (and that is what I’ll call our experience this year), however, I have a student, who functions better with a schedule (so part of our “curriculum” this year involved a lot of opportunities to be flexible).
For now that season is over, and it’s time to regroup, and reorganize and plan once again.
Today, I cleared out tests, assignments, and artwork from the first 10 years of our homeschooling, categorized them and packed them away in manila envelopes.
One more thing to cross off of the “to-do” list. Only 1,000,000,000,000 left to do! At least it seems that way 🙂
I’m sure that I’m exaggerating………….a little.
