My daughter does not have a text book, only a workbook. All teaching if from the teacher's manual. My question is how do I write this down on the planner? Do I write in the page numbers for the teacher's manual or just the pages to be done for the workbooks?
For my son, grade six, (I did this last year for grade five), I wrote the page number from his textbook, plus any speed sheets and extra work. My daughter only has a workbook.
I am wondering if I will confuse myself writing page numbers down from the teacher's manual.
Oh never mind! I am doing this for myself and I will need to know what pages to look at in the Teacher's Manual. I think I will write TM - page 2, WB - page 7, Speed Drill 1, etc.
Gee, I just make this job difficult and it really isn't. Must be why I don't get it done.
I have a grid like fashion with the days of the week across the top and subjects across the left side. On the right is some free space. I fill in the associated page numbers and any other pertinent information. When we start a new book, read a library book, or if a child needs additional help, I write it in the free space on the right side.
This enables me to keep track of everything, on one sheet, per child. When I go back to write my end of the year, everything is there. It makes it so simple for me.
Did this make sense?
I put assignments in for each subject for the week and the kids go down and complete each day's work... then if they feel like going farther they work on the next day.. and so on if they finish all week's work by say Wednesday.. we plan a fun thing or they can start next weeks work...
If we do not finishe I re do and start where they left off...then Keep the original and the final in a notebook
I wrote in our plans TMpxxx WBpxxx under the subject. I also used Donna Curiculum Key ... so I have as an example for English ... E3: TMp1-3 WBp1-2
It might not make sense to anyone else but as long as I know what the heck am talking about that is all that matters. We don't have to show anything here in AZ, so all records are for my own peace of mind.
