I plan backwards. Or don't plan at all. Then write it down like I did.
I very well realize that I am in no position to offer advice on successful homeschooling, especially in this, our roughest semester. But I have found a few small things that have made a difference in how I view our day.
One of them is backwards planning. I keep a day planner next to me the entire time we are "schooling." (I like the Well Planned Day) As the kids work on the different things, I write it down. That simple. Turns out we actually do get things done.
Thanks, christygirl, my friend in real life who shared the idea with me, it's made a big difference.
ps, just saw that all Well Planned Day planners are now 35% off with coupon code hedua927.
What makes for a successful day for you?
