Create an Easy to Edit, Homeschool Weekly Assignment Sheet

I cannot believe the start of the school year is just around the corner! Our summer break flew by. Last week I spent some time planning and organizing each child’s binder for the coming school year.

Create an easy to edit weekly assignment sheet for Homeschoolers. What a great idea to place the week's assignments separately for each subject ON the divider for the subject using Post-it® Notes! Rather than one weekly assignment sheet at the front of each binder, I decided on an assignment sheet for each subject on each subject divider tab. The flexibility of homeschooling, plus inevitable unexpected events each week often find me changing assignments mid-week. Sometimes, I move assignments to another day or even to the next week; or change the assignment all together. Having each subject’s assignments on a separate sheet makes these changes easier. Easy to Edit, Homeschool Weekly Assignment Sheet Tutorial When I look at our old assignment sheets, I hate to see the sloppiness that comes with multiple changes. Enter Post-it® notes for the save! Using Post-it® Super Sticky Notes for each assignment means that I can easily move assignments around since they stick securely, yet remove cleanly.  And if I change something completely, just throw the square away and start over with the corrected assignment on a new Post-it® Super Sticky Note. Even better our assignment sheets are now colorful and fun!

  1. This is so neat! I need to do something like this for my blog and the kid’s homework. We always get so overwhelmed by the day that things get forgotten.

  2. This is brilliant! I’m going to try this with my son, he has dyslexia and is so hard to help him keep organize and focus on his school goals. Thanks for sharing.

  3. What a great assignment sheet and even though we don’t homeschool, this would be useful to keep homework and outside of school assignments ls organized! I’m addicted to Post-it’s and always have a ton in my desk drawer.

  4. I love how bright and colorful it is! I am looking for a better way to keep track of our assignments. I usually have to erase and rewrite and draw arrows….Post-its would make it much neater.

  5. I love this!! Quick question…what do you use the small slender post its at the top of the pages? Just curious 🙂

  6. Question… What happens to the post it’s? Do they get moved for the next week? Copied over when completed? I could see the pretty papers ending up out of the book and scattered… And there goes my log… Did I just miss the answer?

    1. My kids leave the posts in place, but check off what is finished. At the end of the week, I verify the completed work, throw away any completed post it, and move anything that needs to be carried over to next week onto the day I want it completed.
      I do not use assignment sheets as a long, so when an assignment is completed the post it can be thrown away.

        1. I do not keep a log of their specific assignments. Just a master list of what curriculum or textbooks we used. A log is not required in my state, and I have their notebooks to look at if I want to see past work.

          1. That makes sense. I’ve always been “scared” of log books and portfolios, but yours looks easy and doable.

            Thanks.

        1. The lined notebook paper is simply behind the dividers for the children to do their work on. Our dividers are clear, so you can see the workbook pages and notebook paper behind each section. If you choose an opaque or solid divider, you won’t see through the divider into the section like that.

  7. Oh my goodness you are a true genius!!! How amazing! I’m so thankful I found your blog. I was feeding one of the twins at 6 this morning and was searching homeschooling stuff on pinterest and found this blog post. My heart leapt I was SO excited, you had me at the post it notes
    I can’t wait to look around your wonderful blog some more!!

  8. I will totally try this one out! I’ve never thought about this brilliant idea! I really like that 🙂

  9. You could also dp this on page page protectors Use permanent markers for the lines and days of the week and dry erase markers for the assignments. If you’re worried about it coming off cut the original down to fit inside another protector. #savethepostits lol
