Checklists

Well, we have been successful without checklists since September, but I am finding that they need to be re-implemented. My daughter prefers to build with legos or play with her My Little Ponies first thing in the morning, and then wonders why she is still doing schoolwork at 3pm. She needs a checklist to keep her on track. She can’t complain when she knows exactly what she is required to do each day. Legos and My Little Ponies can come after her schoolwork is complete. Even then, she has plenty of time to play.

My drummer boy works hard for most of the day, but due to his learning disabilities, he does not get as much completed as his sister. He needed a checklist to help both of us keep track of what he is actually accomplishing each day.

Generally, I am getting a bit spring feverish, so I need the checklists just as much as they do. My 7 and 10 year old each have a checklist for their individual, independent work, and I have a master checklist for the subjects we complete together.

After assessing this weeks implementation, I will finalize the lists, laminate them and have my students check each item with a dry erase marker, in order to save on paper and ink.

Graduation Update

I am currently preparing my graduate for a senior finale, which will include a career exploration, resume, and a 2 year plan of action. I need to go through pictures for his graduation party slideshow. His transcript is just about complete, minus those classes he is still finishing up, and his senior pictures are being edited. I can’t wait to see how those have turned out.

Happy Spring

Next week is spring break, and we are looking forward to spending time with family. Don’t forget to stop and smell and flowers.
