For homeschool organization, all the systems in the world are not going to make a difference without a daily plan.
The day to day system is so important.
Here is our daily homeschool organization plan.
FOLDER WITH DAILY ASSIGNMENTS
First, our crate holds all of the assignments for each week.
You can learn all about the crate system in Kristi Clover’s course The Ultimate Homeschool Organization Course.
From the crate system, each week gets transferred to a folder before that week begins.
Here is what the folder looks like for my fourth grader:
One side of the folder has assignments that he will do on his own, and one side of the folder has assignments that he will do with me.
This helps all of those “where is this or that” questions. It is all in the folder.
I will even put his questions for reading comprehension or Bible reading in the folder.
If it is something he needs to write down on a piece of paper, then I will include a blank piece of paper in the folder or a composition notebook (I stock up on the back to school sales).
Having everything within reach allows us to be more productive, instead of wasting time searching for materials and assignments.
In addition to the weekly lesson plans that I keep in our binder, we have weekly assignment sheets.
Feel free to grab the weekly plan assignment sheets by clicking the image below.
Finally, each child has their own highlighted schedule.
The highlighted schedule helps me to keep each child on track with their rotation.
WHAT ABOUT THE BOOKS?
I keep all the kids books and workbooks that they need for the week in their locker bin.
These locker bins have worked well for our homeschool to keep the material together.
I have done a lot of tweaking to this system over the years, and this has worked the absolute best for us.
In the morning, each child has their folder and bin. With those two items, they are ready for their day.
Like I said before, this cuts down on the time it takes to search for items we need.
It is all easily accessible and ready to go.
