How do you plan, and then tell your kids what they need to do?
I can take our cirriculum choices and have a plan, but then how I get that plan to my kids keeps changing because I can't seem to find the best way to do that.
I want my kids (6th and 7th grades) to be more independent and accountable, but I still need to guide them. I know someone that emails her kids a list in the morning. I have tried using a teacher type planner but that was difficult for my younger because there was too much written on there. I tried making lists with boxes they could check off, I tried computer printed tables. I ended up writing each subject on one sticky note for my younger, which helped her but was very time consuming for me and I didn't always have it ready when she was ready to start.
I am considering writing each subject for each kid in notebooks (1 subject per kid in each notebook)...but that is a lot of notebooks if it ends up not working. But it would help to have assignments just outlined and they could just do next on the list in case we need to review or take a day off or something.
So, what do you do? How well does it work?
