Highlighter + Pens + Planning Calendar + Notebooks = A Great Afternoon! I emailed schooling tasks to G&C. I made a Study Guide in Connor's science notebook based on his CD-Rom lessons this week. Ki's list in in a small handheld notebook. on Monday-Thursday I left space at the bottom of each page and told him to draw a picture. Some were specific (like favorite snack or an alien) and some not. Friday he's to choose one of his drawings about which to write a detailed description.
With blue & yellow highlighters I marked weeks of school and vacation. School for the first 3 weeks of November. No School last week of Nov -1st week of Dec. School for weeks 2&3 of Dec. No School until Jan 4. Then 4 weeks J-Term followed by a week off.
Brian marked the days off work in purple for the rest of the year.
Connor & Gavin's list are a lot of "Weekly Goals". So no specifics for daily work as long as it's all done before Saturday.
