ACE Box Day!

Here's what came today!!

I heard the rumble of the UPS truck and like a crazed stalker I ran out to greet the UPS guy..... This is the rest of Rocket Dog's year which we will finish in probably a month and Angel Baby's new year which he started about 3 weeks ago.  All delivered while we're on vacay!

Robinson Curriculum Homeschool Planner

I just came across this new planner that is GREAT for Robinson Curriculum, Self Learning users (like ACE) or if you just need a chore chart.  It's called My Student Logbook.  If you're familiar with Robinson than you may know that there's a checklist described that Ann used in the Keeping Organized section of the Robinson Curriculum website.  Well  now there is a family using the curriculum that is producing the checklist.

This system is VERY similar to the post I had here a couple of weeks ago and I still think that's a great system but if you don't want to make the charts then you can pick this one up prebound.  The one drawback I see would be that the mom can't see what's going on unless she looks at the book where with HomeschoolHowTo's  "How To Make Optimal To-Do Charts Renee talks about having the chart posted where it can be easily seen by the mom so she can see exactly what's going on.  I still think getting "Optimal To-Do Chart's" is worth the money because it goes into the why and how to step up a system that gets it's only $3@!!  

The Berenstein Bears Big Book of Science and Nature - RIP

Homeschool Chore Charts..That Actually Work!

I've tried all kinds of chore charts and homeschool schedules and well...they really just don't work.  I don't mean the planner I use which is Motivated Moms.  I'm talking about the flow or rhythm of your day.  It seemed like i'd get just about everything done and then...I'd realized that the kids hadn't brushed their teeth in 2 days (or hair).

For the last month I've been using a chart that I made up using HomeschoolHowTo's  "How To Make Optimal To-Do Charts" and whala!   We've all been doing what we're suppose to be doing ...and...I can see right away what's going on.  Brilliant!
