Are you finding the best way to keep track of all your homeschool materials now that they have arrived? Ideas are everywhere via Facebook, Pinterest and blog posts. Searching to find what will work for you and your family can be tough.

You want to keep track of lessons, so you are looking for a planner. HomeWorks offers a couple of planners through BJU Press that are basic and very nice: The Homeschooler’s Journal and The High School Homeschooler’s Journal. There are other options too. I personally used a simple notebook for each child. It was a half inch notebook with the slipcover in the front.

This notebook we call the Assignment Notebook. I added dividers for each subject and placed the BJU Press Distance Learning lesson plans for each subject in that notebook behind the correct subject tab. In the front of the notebook, I put our schedule, a calendar, and a special month form for my children to mark the lessons and extracurricular activities they did each day.

My children would then have everything they needed in that notebook to do their work daily. The lesson plans were complete for the entire year. All they had to do was follow the schedule and the lesson plans marking what they did each day. They would highlight what they did on the lesson plans per subject, and at the end of each day, they simply brought me their notebook for my review. Then I would check their forms and initial them, showing that I acknowledge that they had completed the day’s work. I then would take the same notebook and do my part and check the assignments and highlight what I graded and reviewed. This system worked really well for us.

Today there are even more tools to choose from to make things easier for us to plan and schedule our day. Because I love technology, I found some of those tools and talk about one of them here. There is even a free sample of my schedule within the post.
