Weekly Planning Time Keeps Me Sane - Day 4 Tip

5 Days of Tips for Homeschool Parents



This week members of The Schoolhouse Review Crew will be sharing 5 Days of Tips For Homeschool Parents.  

We are finishing up our 8th year of homeschooling and have a 7th grader, 9th grader and a graduating Senior this year! 



Today's Tip

Decide on a day to complete your weekly planning and do it! I choose Saturday but let's face it sometimes it's Sunday or Monday before I actually get it done.  When I do take the time to get it done the weekend before, I already feel one step ahead of the game come Monday morning.  


Depending on your curriculum and needs, your planning time may look different but the point is to get it done!

Here is an older video of my weekly planning time.  The only thing I changed is making the kids fill out their own checklists for the week.  I think it helps them to fill accountable to what will be accomplished during the week.


Day 1, Day 2, and Day 3 tips in case you missed them.  Here is an older post on my brain that may give you some ideas too.

  1. I am constantly struggling to stay ahead of the game with planning. I just have not figured it out yet. I do pretty good with having a big picture in my head and putting it on paper daily. But more than that? Nope. Just not my style, I guess. - Lori

    1. I am sure it has something to do with my Type A personality! You still have a big picture plan though even if it's in your head. It's just that my head can never hold a big picture, lol. It turns into mush in my head but when I put it on paper - ahhh such a relief for me. :)
