ETC - 9 lessons

I did something like this when I was teaching. I had each piece of curriculum stashed on a shelf. Each Friday I would pull all the worksheets, flashcards, books, I would need for the next week, along with making all the copies I would need. Then it was all right there in one spot. Very handy. It made me 100% more useful to my students.

I was never as organized as this, though. I bet it will work really well.

I like your idea, too. And, I love how organized you are! And, you can feel like you're "done" when you accomplish your goals.

Great idea!

A hs veteran taught me to do this with the phonics curriculum we used and it worked wonderfully. I did it a bit differently though, in that I had teachers notes for each lesson in the binder etc and rotated the worksheets in for only a month.

I may try the quarterly notebook plan with rotating in the worksheets for each quarter when the previous one is done - we don't have a lot of bookshelf space so that might work well. :)

Thanks!

This is something I'm going to have to try out as well..we are on a 4 quarter learning system and this will make it so much easier to plan...Lol...that's my goal...to get organized so it's less about the paper and more about enjoying the homeschooling.
