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.
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. 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!
Use the ruler and sharpie to evenly divide a divider into 3 rows. Next divide it into 2 columns. Do not make the columns even- draw the line 4 inches from the outside edge of the divider, leaving a larger column on the side of the divider with holes. Use the 1st divider as a template for drawing rows and columns on the remaining dividers. Label 5 of the sections on each divider Mon-Fri. Use 3×3 Post-it® Super Sticky Notes to write each assignment, one note will fit in each square. Use the last unlabeled square and smaller Post-it® Notes for reminders and notes for the week. My tween girls really love their new colorful and fun assignment dividers. And I enjoy making the assignments so much more than our old method! Don’t you love this great way to use Post-it® notes for colorful assignment sheets? I’m more than a little obsessed with Post-it® products, using them for homeschool, to-do lists, making notes in books, and my calendar too! What is your favorite way to plan homeschool assignments?
