Ok, the only problem I having with this system now is the actual planning and filing of cetain subjects. I am scheduling MM and I have no clue how much to schedule per week. The users guide has a recommendation.
Do you think it will be too much of a pain to file how I see fit and then shuffle papers around if DD is going faster or slower than planned? I know I will be tweaking this system all year especially since it is my first, but what do you guys plan to do for things like this? Just lay it out and then shuffle it around or should I just not file MM and see how it goes the first few weeks?
I know that I will probably add in extra worksheets/practice as I see how she is doing with certain things, but I hate to plan out all this work and then have to constantly adjust. Just thinking it over and wondering what the Hive does about this?
I ran into this particular issue when planning my oldest dd's reading. Somedays she flies through a lesson and easily is set for the next lesson to begin the next day...AND she has days where she can't get through the first part of the lesson and struggles through and BARELY and sometimes doesn't finish the lesson. So for me I use my scheduler as goals. Not set in stone. Not only will this help motivate me to TEACH her in a different way so she can grasp the lesson better....and it helps her know that we need to try our best to complete the lesson so we can put that number on the workbox to show completed.
I'll begin printing work in the next couple of hours most likely and I know that since I scheduled already it'll be easier for me to file. But scheduling was the hardest for me. I didn't want to over encumber my children with daily work BUT I wanted to also push to achieve our annual goals.
