I am on a journey to a more organized homeschool.
In past years, I had a hard time keeping our material together.
This meant that I was spending a lot of time searching for books and papers.
I was wasting precious time. And I was frustrated!
This is the system I use for a more organized homeschool:
Step 1: Crate System
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.
Step 2: The Folder System
While the crate holds all the assignments for the year, the folder is for day-to-day use.
STEP 3: THE BINDER SYSTEM
I always choose big binders because there is always a lot that needs to go into this binder.
I use dividers to help me divide the subjects. Having the work organized is essential when we need to go back and find something for reference.
This binder is also our portfolio and kept for record keeping purposes.
INSIDE THE BINDER
The very first part of our binder is a calendar that keeps tracks of the school days completed.

The binder is organized by subjects.
I have tabs for the following subjects:
Once the work is completed and graded, it goes behind the correct tab.
I love this system because you can easily add tabs if needed as the year progresses to keep work organized.
It is easily portable, adjustable, and keeps it all together as the week and year progress.
